The poorest quality meat I have ever purchased

1 stars

Very, very unhappy with this recent purchase. The quality of this product is suspect and its origins need to be looked at by Trading Standards. Cooked slowly for over 6 hours yet was so tough I could have made a pair of shoes from it. Eventually I gave it to my neighbour to feed her dogs with as it simply was so tough as to be inedible by humans. I will never buy meat from Tesco again. It was a total waste of money.

It was very gristley and after following instructi

2 stars

It was very gristley and after following instructions for roasting and resting, was so tough most was inedible. the remains I stewed for 3 hours. Probably thats what it was stew beef. Unfortunately bought 2 joints and froze one. more stew??

Go to a proper butcher instead.

1 stars

Terrible quality. Cooking instructions followed to the letter for a medium roast, however it turned out like leather. Forget any suggestion of it looking anywhere near the descriptive photo as it won't be. What surprised me was the amount of liquid coming out of the joint, far in excess of what you would expect for a pre-basted product. This was quite clearly water with a small amount of fat. Avoid this like the plague.

after 30+ years looking for another shop

boy it looks good, how long! a good 8"-10" when it arrived it had shrunk to 5", got it for the daughter, told her it would last a week,2 girls and husband, this one will last for 1 meal after it has shrunk after roasting, no more. you know Tesco are not no 1 no more ,more no 4

Why is it Pot Luck which cut of beef is deliered?

2 stars

Like a previous reviewer says, it's pot luck which cut is delivered to you and if it's large enough. Top Rump (tender but usualy has an annoying gristle vein or two running through it) Topside or Silverside. Why can't a customer choose which cut they want? I don't bother now

Don't buy rip off

2 stars

Very poor quality beef. only bought this as it was half price and now i see why. thankfully we weren't serving this to guests at Xmas. lots of fatty bits you struggle to chew through. Having said that the dog liked it.

Tesco gave us the wrong size beef 1.6kg instead of

5 stars

Tesco gave us the wrong size beef 1.6kg instead of a 2.4kg (beware of this). That said the beef was terrific - cooked at 180 degrees for around 1h10 - leaving it nice and pink in the middle.

Best beef I’ve tasted for a long time!

5 stars

This beef was delicious and took less than two hours to cook. It was as succulent as fillet steak!
