Brought this pork joint for Sunday lunch.... Very disappointed... Even after lots of slow cooking... Lots of grisly bits... Good flavour though.

Uncarvable. Inedible grissel

Massive joint of rolled grissel. I couldn't cut it and it wouldn't have served one because the meat was just grissel. Went in the bin. Ruined dinner. Really awful.

A lot of fat but the meat was nice enough when we couldn't get to a butchers

Disgusting and vile.

1 stars

I have never, ever had such appalling meat. Huge 2" thick layer of fat, the rest was smelly and inedible. I have complained, but due to current situation no response, which is fair enough. But I have frozen it just in case someone would like to see it. It would be difficult to be certain that this was in fact pork.
