Careful of the fat
Good afternoon, my beef joint was netted with the basting fat within the net on top of the joint, I reckon the fat was about 20% of the total thinking back, as it was for basting don't quite understand why it was within the cooking net. After 20 min in the oven the basting fat was surrounding the veg under the beef. Meat seems ok - just was left footed by the amount of fat.
One of the worst beef joints I've ever had, I do not understand why you add basting fat it just leaves a very greasy joint of beef and the juices are terrible for making gravy with, due to the oil, meat itself was very fatty and not pleasant
Ten out of ten.
We have had two of these joints and both were totally delicious. We like our beef rare and it was beautiful.
full of gristle and cysts
Tough and impossible to eat, full of cysts couldn't stomach it
Tasted great 👍

Tough and sinewy, never again,second beef joint fr
Tough and sinewy, never again,second beef joint from Tesco that has disappointed both pieces were like shoe leather.
Have not eaten yet but prepping to roast and was horrified to discover my top rump joint of 2.078 Kilos had 305 grams of sliced FAT added to the underside of the joint!! I understand it was "with added basting fat" but need to ask if the fat is included in the price I paid per Kilo? Will not but this type of joint again.
Do not buy
Bought this as a treat, dont usually have a Sunday roast other than holiday and high days. Absolute rubbish, meat was tough, huge wedge of fat hidden underneath/inside and 2 huge lines of grizzle running through which meant I had to cut loads of it away because we couldn't eat it. I am glad it was half price because I would have been mad rather than disappointed. Will never buy a joint again from Tesco
Too much is fat!
A long thin strip of fatty beef sandwiched between a thick layer of added fat on one side and its own layer of fat on the opposite. So much fat that it is not great value even at half price. 377 grams of the 1.4kg joint delivered was added fat, that plus the joint's own natural layer of fat meant a good third of the weight was fat. If you buy this online, order a larger joint that you normally would so there is enough actual beef to go round! And best shop in store, so you can at least try to avoid thin joints with such a large proportion of fat.
Too much fat this year
Been great over the years but this year they have added such a thick lump of fat to it.Disgusting when looking at the juice when cooked.Don't know why they have decided to do this.
