Considering these are 'finest' you would expect better. Theyre grisly not a great meaty taste just very herby and skins are tough as old balloons. Dont bother unless you remove the skins.
Really horrible sausages since they changed the re
Really horrible sausages since they changed the recipe to gluten free. Really soft when cooking and struggled to get the fork in when tried to turn them over when cooking because they don’t hold the shape. Taste like eating cardboard and the skins are really chewy. I used to buy these and was willing to pay the premium price but I certainly will not be purchasing these again.
Not as good as they were
Not as good as they were, they changed how course the grind it to a smooth mash.
Worst Sausage Ever
Can't believe how bad these sausages are. Had to take the skin off as very chewy and couldn't eat it. Spat it out. The meat was grisley and fell into pieces. DO NOT WASTE YOUR MONEY. A better deal buying Richmond.
Tesco compromise their reputation
Very disappointing , which is a shame as I remember these being o.k. Unpleasantly 'gritty' with a slimy, synthetic 'mouth feel' . I would expect more effort in avoiding accusations of 'cheap' or 'cost-cutting' in such a front line, 'premium' product.
Bought this on offer for Tesco club card holder's price recently. I cocked meatball pasta by cutting sausages in bite size which disappeared in the pasta sauce...The texture was mushy. I wonder if Tesco changed quality of ingredients :(
Good this time round
The latest packet I bought and grilled were good texture and decent 'cumberland' taste. Quite a lot of fat drained into the grill pan, halfway through cooking I drained it off to limit the smoke and fat on the inside of the oven. Took three or four turns at 200 deg C grill, 8 mins each time, to brown and caramalise the outer. The 'finest' label sausage quality does seem variable (periodic different supplier/recipe?) and I regularly stop buying them for a few months.
The skins on these sausages are too tough. Had to remove skins. And a bit to spicy.
These were our favourite sausages but I bought them last week and they were completely different. I don't know if I just got a bad batch or of they have changed the recipe...I don't remember them being gluten free before but the the texture was horrible, they were all squishy and didn't hold their shape when they were cooking.
These used to be lovely meaty sausages - certainly "Finest". But they have changed them without telling us, and the sausage meat is now really floury and gritty - yuk! Pay 40p more and buy Porky Whites sausages instead - SO much better.
