Not Tesco Finest,
I got this product as an alternative to making it my self. Poor quality certainly a con calling it Tesco's Finest Shepherds Pie when it's not. I can't taste the meat or potatoes for the over powerful herbs, especilly Rosemary, should be called Tescos Herb and Lamb pie. Huge disappointment 😞
Don’t be hoodwinked by the ‘finest’ range tag
As this product is part of the ‘Finest’ range, I expected more. Found it be 90% bland mash and 10% gristly flavourless mince/gravy. Very dry overall after strictly following the cooking guidelines.
You can eat it, but . . . . . .
To be endured rather than enjoyed. Memorable, if only to remind me how awful it was, and to make my own in future. Wouldn't even have it again as a stand-by. Too much gloopy, whipped potato and very little meat. I can only assume that there was a surplus of stuffing mix lying around and someone had the bright idea of using it up as a topping. Not a good idea by any stretch. It totally overwhelmed any other flavour - if there was any in the first place, which I doubt.
They changed the recipe - all you can taste now is rosemary, the meat quality is also poor. Quite unpleasant. Used to buy this regularly, never again.
The herb topping, which was not pleasant to taste,
The herb topping, which was not pleasant to taste, over powered any flavour that may have been in the meat sauce.
I found this inedible. The tiny amount of meat was floating in a sea of really terrible chemical -tasting gravy.
Sorry, but NO!!
Really nothing to write home about. To describe it as "Finest" is really unfair, it is relatively average minced lamb with a hint of red wine, overlain by tasteless mashed potato. This will probably offend no one, but is instantly forgettable with the caveat of DO NOT buy again.
Ok but lose the garlic
Tried this out, prior to ordering for my elderly Dad. It was okay, I think the meat content could be increased a tad. But with the addition of grated cheese on top and some veg it is overall a decent meal. One criticism though, too heavy handed with the herbs, and overall heavy on garlic, which has no place in shepherds pie. This comes from a garlic lover.
Tiny and topping is an awful flavour. Will not bu
Tiny and topping is an awful flavour. Will not buy again
Will never buy again
Hubby likes shepherds pie but not this one ended up putting most in bin, said didn’t know what was on top of potato but tasted awful, wish I had read the reviews first, have just removed it from next delivery.
