Meaty, not fatty and lovely taste. British Pork.
It was British. There was not too much fat on it just enough to make it tender. it was very tasty and very meaty (no gristle and lots of waste) Plenty of crackling. I have ordered this again. Lovely.
Why are people complaining about too much fat. It'
Why are people complaining about too much fat. It's shoulder ,not leg , it's supposed to be fatty and flavoursome IDIOTS
Great value joint for pulled pork
Totally agree with the other reviewers - this product is fantastic as long as you slow cook it (15mins sizzle at 180 then 6-8 hours at 130). First dry rub with 2tsp smoked paprika/brown sugar/cumin and 1tsp salt/pepper, then pour a can of Tesco cider over, put a lid on (I use Le Creuset Cast Iron Casserole dish) and 6-8 hours later pulled pork heaven!!
Fit for the bin!
Very disappointing! After five hours in the oven the joint, comprised of fat and gristle was almost impossible to cut...let alone pull! Managed salvage around 25% but the rest went in the bin.
Needs long slow cooking
I have bought this several times, but always cook all day in the slow cooker, then pour off the fat. Nice and tender cooked this way. Also good to know that its British pork which has higher welfare standards for the pigs than some other countries.
For slow cooking, not roasting
I wish people would stop moaning and educate themselves a bit more....it's a shoulder joint. It's basically a giant lump of casserole/stewing meat. Slow cook it and you're away. Slow cook it a bit longer in lovely tomato/barbecue-y sauces and you'll make the best pulled pork known to man. If you want a joint that you can roast, go for a leg.
My family were very pleased with this roast pork a
My family were very pleased with this roast pork and the crackling was superb, excellent value for money.
Although cooking this joint thoroughly, the meat was spongy, fatty and full of gristle. I am surprised that the Tesco Buyer allowed this standard of meat to be passed onto the Customers; must be a Vegan. I tried this joint as A Roast, cold in Sandwiches and in a Curry. The meat was discarded in all cases and fed to the cats and foxes that visit our garden.
dont waste your money.
