Not as described
Tasteless , tough pastry certainly not flaky.very little meat (not even sure it was steak) and not much gravy. Will go back to Ginsters
Very little meat, mainly gravy.
You Get What You Pay For
I did not choose to buy them, they were given to me as a substitution in my online order. I figured we would try them and cooked them according to the directions. The pastry was not very nice and reminded us of cardboard. The filling consisted of a small chunk of meat and then some gravy that had some flakes of meat in it. As it is inexpensive, you get what you pay for.
Have tried these twice. The 1st they were OK and made a quick lunchtime snack. This time virtually no meat just gravy so won't be buying again
For 50p each, you know you won't quite be getting
For 50p each, you know you won't quite be getting the equivalent of a Greggs Steak Bake. But I still love these! Lovely flaky pastry. Delicious filling, with chunks of steak and rich gravy. Fairly generous on the amount of filling, but some are sometimes more/less full than others. These are perfect for a small bite to eat in under 30 mins. My absolute uni staple!
Do not buy
Bought these a couple of times, but not again! Don't expect much for the price. Certainly not 'steak' as in the description much more like flakey small pieces. This time a white lump (about 1.5cm by 1cm) fell onto the plate which was either a part of brain or a mass of veins/arteries and when I took the pastry apart there were other holey white lumps amongst the gravy, so straight in the bin! Not recommended.
Tough pastry, little meat.
Cooked as per instruction but we couldn't cut the pastry, needed to use steak knives, there was one or two pieces of meat in each bake and mostly gravy. They tasted okay but we won't buy again as it took too much effort to cut the pastry, not sure why this was.
