Disgusting and inedible
Tough, sinewy and inedible. Given that Tesco's Finest products are typically excellent, this meat is awful. Will never buy it again.
Well worth the extra cost
Am I lucky or are some reviewers not so or just fussy? I have just enjoyed one of these steaks which was as good as I have ever tasted. Followed the pan fried instructions for a medium steak and it was perfect. Very tender with almost no waste. Well worth the extra cost over that for a standard rump steak
Really tough very disappointing for finest.
I have to agree with the other reviewers - whilst this steak looked good in the packet, it was very tough, gristly and just generally unpleasant to eat. I was surprised because usually the Tesco Finest product range is very impressive in terms of quality.
I love steak! Unfortunately this was not a steak.
I love steak! Unfortunately this was not a steak. I suspect the cow would have given Usain Bolt a good run for his money as this was just a lump of muscle. It was without doubt the toughest steak I have ever eaten and I cooked it medium rare. It bore no resemblance to the wonderful rump steak I had the week before.
Not as good as I’d hoped
I was looking forward to this, however like many beef items from Tesco at the moment it was badly butchered. Undaunted I got a sharp knife and trimmed it up. Then I cooked it to medium rare on a griddle it looked very good. Sadly it didn’t taste as good as it looked. In fact it tasted of very little which means to me it hadn’t been hung long enough, the farmers, produce buyers At Tesco are doing a good job. It’s the butchery dept that isn’t up to scratch. Perhaps management could have a look at this as it’s a shame to spoil such a good product.
Tasty and great quality
My husband described this as 'probably the tastiest steak' he has ever eaten.
Waste of money
Probably one of the fattiest steaks I’ve ever tasted. Every single bite had grissle in.
Very disappointing.....It looked so good as well.... Prepared it the same as I normally prepare Rump....Even softened it to break up the fibres etc... Then grilled for a few minutes.... End result......Really really tough.....The whole texture and look once cooked didn't seem at all like Rump....let alone Finest Rump.......Awful, I'm afraid.... Is it a different supplier?.......
Poor quality meat
This Angus rump steak used to be excellent and worth the extra cost. But recently your butchery department has allowed poor quality cuts to be packed with what appears to be nice meat when seen through the clear film packing but the underside is gristle and sinewy. Thank you the refund but would not have been requested had you maintained quality meat. The 'normal' Tesco rump steaks are at present much nicer and cheaper.
