Ridiculously tough - I've never had a fillet like it! Certainly not "finest"!
Cooked according to instructions but was really to
Cooked according to instructions but was really tough and completely inedible. Very disappointed, will not buy again.
These fillet joints are tasty enough but not at all recommended if you dont own your own teeth. Chewy isnt the right word. I buy regularly but only to cook and put into curries/ casseroles to simmer for a few hours longer, or slice up for medallions or making sausage. As a small joint theyre very hard work no matter how long and slow you cook them for. The other gripe is theres rarely more than a day left before use by date no matter when you go in store,but that may be the fault of my local store.

Lovely. Perfect for cutting into rounds and cooking in a creamy Dijon mustard sauce
Tough as old boots - inedible
Absolutely inedible. Cooked as per instructions and allowed to stand...but was SO SO tough we threw it all away. Good job we didn't have guests!
Will buy again
Very good quality. Very little trimming. Well pleased.
A bit of prep helps ...
I think this cooks best in a roasting bag with stock and a bit of wine to keep it moist, plenty of seasoning and herbs for flavour, then it makes a tender, tasty and easy meal. I like the low fat content and quite often buy it for that reason, but the lean meat quickly dries out and toughens cooked without liquid.
not over impressed and did everything as per instructions. wouldn't buy again and much rather have a slow cooked piece of loin.
Tender and better taste
So much tender than the normal fillet, worth the money.
