Wonderful, sadly for thee but not for me!
Slow cooked overnight and a roast like no other. I was hailed as a cut above for my lunch, but it was all down to the meat. I wouldn't mind, but every time I put beef on my order, Tesco take it off. So Tesco should get their orders done before other people, as we pay for the privilege of using Tesco...what is the point in having it on your list if you can't buy it! Shame as I loved it.
Absolutely tasteless, if I had my eyes closed I would not have been able to tell you what the meat was. Was supposed to be a large rump but it wasn’t that big. Plus it split into two as it cooked so ended up with two very small joints which made very small slices. This was a “substitution” for my cheaper slow cooking beef joint so I was very disappointed to find it had no taste at all. Would not buy again!
overpriced !! suppose to be a large joint not as decribed !!!! very very disapointed
Don't be fooled by half priced deals
In product description it said the joint would be topside or top rump I received silverside so it was not such a good deal and certainly not very nice, tough and chewy.
Tougher than old boots! Excellent for shoe repair.
Cooked this last Sunday for lunch and we found it impossible to chew, even sliced very thinly. We ended up with just vegetables and yorkshire pudding. In the hope of salvaging something from this joint, the next day I put it in a casserole with veg and stock and cooked it for 5 hours in a low oven. It was edible but very expensive for stewing beef.
Smallest piece of Beef I have ever seen
Order this for Sunday lunch (and Monday tea) for 5 of us 2.45 Kg. It turned up just 1 Kg. It is the smallest piece of Beef I have ever seen. How am I going to stretch that to 5 lunches now I have to go to town to get another piece. Defeats the object of having a delivery ! This is not the first time either Not happy at all with it.
Seems to be getting worse. As others have said a large amount of basting fat that has increased in size over the months. The last purchase was for 2 of these, 1 for myself and the other for my parents. Both had a large chunk of fat hidden in the middle. It was pretty obvious it was rolled in to boost the weight and was deliberately hidden. I have now stopped buying it.
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.
