Tough as old boots
This was very poor indeed. Incredibly tough to the point that my husband and I gave up after chewing our way through just one slice each and having to leave most of that on the side of the plate. We had a Sunday dinner of vegetables and gravy instead and I will now try and retrieve the rest of the joint in a slow cook curry but fear I will just waste electricity! The conspiracy theorist in me says this is a good attempt to put people off buying meat!
I’ve tried all different cuts of roast beef. Apart from Aberdeen Angus beef, this is far and away one of the best joints I’ve had for a long time. I read the reviews and decided to try it. It was moist, tender and tasty. I’ve used the leftover beef in a Spag Bol. Lovely !!!!!!!! I cooked it for slightly less time as shown in the pack as we like it a bit rare.
It is a tender a tasty joint if cooked properly. I
It is a tender a tasty joint if cooked properly. It will become tough and dry if overcooked. But it is delicious and nice in case you follow the instructions.
Great flavour, great value
I always find this Cornish salt beef to have great flavour, very tender and great value. Cooks easily. My favourite beef joint, not sure why it is sometimes not available.
Great joint of beef for Sunday roast
Personally I think this is by some margin the best supermarket beef. Always tender and lovely taste. Well worth the extra cost but not always available. Bought many times and consistently good.
Beautiful tender juicy joint.
This joint was absolutely delicious,it doesn't need as long as an hour in my opinion, i like mine medium rare, its important to leave it to stand for quite a while then those juices can be added to the gravy, they do look bloody but it all tastes delicious.would definitely buy again.
We tried this joint for a 'special' meal and it was very tough to the point that we couldn't eat any of it. To their credit Tesco refunded us without any hassle.
A very nice joint of meat
Now I like many people will have bought joints of beef from supermarkets and like some of the comments on this page it is always hit and miss whether the piece you get is tasty and edible. Even if you pay more and go for their Finest, Taste the Difference etc, you don't always get a good piece of meat. Supermarkets are very clever at presentation and its not till you open you see the grisly bit running right through the middle or it has no taste. On this occasion our meat was tender and tasty, not sure the salt and pepper crust added a lot and cooking wise I like my beef pink so keep to about 40 -45 mins at 180 if you have a fan oven. I will purchase again
Always found it to be tasty.
Had this three times now and it has always been very tasty. I can only imagine that reviews that say it is tough are over cooking it. It takes very little time to cook it; we have it as medium. It will feed three or two with some left over for sandwiches the next day.
no it was not good quality. used as a roast joint
no it was not good quality. used as a roast joint but very hard to slice as had a large sinew running through the middle. not a lot of taste and dry. would never buy again.
