Good meatball mince if you prepare it properly.
This item was delivered as a substitute because the lower fat version was unavailable. I put it in a large saucepan, covered it with water then simmered for a couple of minutes. Most of the fat floated off, so I strained the mince into a colander, rinsed it and made meatballs with it and froze them. They really were excellent, cooked in a tomato and basil sauce. The separated fat I solidified and fed to the wild birds.
I have never been so ill as I was after eating this mince I am at 2 days after eating it and am still not able to eat anything, whether it was a bad batch or not I don't know but I most definitely will not be buying it again, wish I could give no stars.
Totally inedible. Made a spaghetti bolognese. The texture and above all the smell of this mince was so awful it went straight in the dustbin.
used in a spag. bol. The texture isn't very nice. It breaks down into very small bits - slurry-like.
You get what you pay for!
No, it's not the best mince, it's not as good as fresh, but if you cook as per instructions and DRAIN IT, it's perfectly acceptable for a family mid week meal. It won't win any Michelin stars but it does what it says on the tin/bag...
Greasiest mince ever
I don’t usually complain but this mince was so greasy pools of grease ruined my bolognese
Great to have in the freezer as back up.
I have had no problem using this mince unlike other reviewers. Cook it quickly and it keeps its shape and texture well.
Bought 3 bags of this product to stock up freezer towards the middle of March. Tried to cook a shepherds pie with it straight from frozen and all it did was end up as pulp as you fried it. It did not keep any form and did not "brown" the way I would expect normal mince to do. The food ended up greasy and tasteless. So disappointed with this product (I am sure I have used it OK in the past), that all the unused mince ended up on its way to the Waste Disposal via the bin! Not worth wasting time and the risk in the current situation taking it back.
Very disappointed. Used this to make burgers which
Very disappointed. Used this to make burgers which weren't to bad but had a very soft texture and tasted like cheap store made ones. Also used to make a spag bol which was inedible and subsequently binned and a takeaway ordered. The Texture was way off and taste was... well, tasteless. Would not recommend, even out of desperation!
Very good value
