It was awful, all gristle and hard carrots. This product used to be a staple in our house but alas no more.
Very poor, not up to the usual standards
Possibly the worst Tesco ready made meal I have had for a long time. Four pieces of meat, three of which were great lumps of fat, the sliced carrots were rock hard after being cooked for the required time as stated on the packet and even the mashed potato seemed to need further cooking.
Not for me.
Disappointing, I couldn't eat the beef it looked lean but tasted fatty.
It was dreadful
It was dreadful, my husband said it was all fat & grissle, not value for money.
You could be lucky......
......or (according to many of these reviews) absolutely not! Get this for an elderly neighbour who isn't that fussy but doesn't like anything tough or tasteless. So far he's been happy with the ones I've bought and said they're tasty and filling. It does sound as if you have to take pot luck - some tough, some not, which isn't really good enough, Tesco! Get you quality control sorted. These ready meals are a godsend for live-alone pensioners but they won't keep buying them if they keep getting duds.
Beef tough n gristly twice,horrd, veg pots ok
The second time ordered trusting 1st was a glitch! Please up your game on this Tesco ✌️ Gristle with pots n veg anyone? Despite being allegedly "slow cooked until tender" both meals had large lumps of tough, gristly beef..horrid. carrots n mash ok hence 2 stars and costs been refunded.
This was absolutely awful! I couldn't eat it. Meat was not in the least bit tender. All I could eat was the potatoes & gravy. Won't buy again
I get this each time I shop, a perfect ready meal! The beef melts in my mouth and the overall taste of the meal is very nice.
Horrible inedible meat
Really terrible meat - gristly, horrible. Luckily I'd cooked extra veg (carrots, cabbage) and I thought the gravy and mash was ok so I quickly cooked some baby mushrooms as well to go in the gravy and threw the meat in the bin. With the extra cooking I did and the cost of the meal it is appalling value.
This was extremely poor. The braised beef was all gristle, with some fat but virtually no meat attached.. Considering the price I suppose you cannot expect too much, but this was way below acceptable.
