We bought this for a roast and it was extremely tough with a huge amount of gristle and tough sinew running through it. If I could give this 0 stars I would. This was the worst and toughest piece of meat/gristle I have had for a long time. I’m not even sure the dog will like it.

Full of gristle, ordered two joints and both the same, would not recommend.
The poorest quality meat I have ever purchased
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 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.
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?
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
I don't mind basting fat but these joints have fat covering top and bottom that as been put there 40% of the joint is fat worst meat joint I have ever bought
WILL BUY IT AGAIN
A DELICIOUS CUT OF MEAT SLOW ROASTED MAKES THIS BEEF BEAUTIFULLY TENDER AND SUCCULENT
