Cooked well it isnt dreadful, but its not quality

2 stars

Not the best quality of meat, but to be honest the cooking instructions are well off the mark, which doesnt help. I know they all say 'all appliances vary' but they cant vary this much. I tried the following:- Make sure the meat is at room temp before you start. Put some oil in your tray, put it in the oven to preheat to 180 (160 fan). Once up to temp, tray out of the oven, roll the meat around in the tray to cover in oil, then season well with salt and pepper. Cook for 50 minutes for medium rare. Rest for at least 10 mins. Forget about the packet instructions about foil on, foil off, foil on.... You will need a sharp knife to carve it, and whilst not dry it doesnt burst with flavour, so probably best served with a sauce or gravy. I found that halving some baby potatoes (unpeeled) and put them in the tray with the meat for the full 50 minutes and they cook perfectly.

Awful, not nice tough and chewy

Old boot

1 stars

Like chewing a old boot! Cooked medium rare for 50 min rest for 10 as per instructions. Couldn't not chew it.Waste of money

Dreadful - don’t buy!

1 stars

If it was possible to give “no” stars I would. This was the worst piece of meat that we have ever cooked. Tough as leather - absolutely dreadful.

It's cheap and very edible

4 stars

Don't know why people downvote this so much, it's what it is. It's a cheap cut of meat so set your expectations. Over the year I've had around 5 or more of these packs and they've all been ok. It's Silverside so it's going to be tougher than Ribeye. But cooked as per the instructions, or what I do is slice it into steaks and Sous Vide it, comes out lovely. Lots of flavour and reasonably tender. I just hope you don't remove this because of all the crying, I love it and will continue to buy it.

Not worth it

1 stars

Enough for one person after its cooked its nothing left full of water next time go to butchers and get a bit

Toughest beef I've had for years.

1 stars

Looked fine. However when cooked it was the toughest meat I've had for years. I like rare beef but had to extend the cooking time.

A lion might like it.

1 stars

Possibly the worst piece of meat I have ever bought. Roasted at 180 fan for 1 hour, only just done. Tasted more like biltong / jerky so full of "connective tissue", where is it from? unspecified. Do yourselves a favour Tesco and remove from your shelves - negative reviews for over a year.

Not worth the money

1 stars

Cooked as per instructions but the meat was still raw on the inside after the recommended time. Had to cook for an additional 20 minutes until it was medium! The meat was tough and chewy (despite being pink in the middle so not overcooked!) And very gristley. Very disappointed, it was a waste of money and will not buy again. Wish I had read the reviews before buying it.
