Palm oil has no place on or in a pork joint.
Adding Palm oil to everything is ridiculous. It's like Tesco has zero morals. There is so much fat on this pork that it's pretty much self basting and palm oil has no place in or on it. There are so many complaints on so many Tesco products complaining about Palm oil in the ingredients it's become a running joke.
Just too expensive
Perfectly good piece of pork but too expensive, I can get it elsewhere around 30% cheaper. Sorry Tesco but you need to review your prices.
QUALITY GONE TO RUBBISH!!
I started regularly buying this joint 2-3 years ago. It was a RELIABLE excellent tender tasty roast. Not any more. Now its a regular disappointment. Tough and poor flavour. I can tell by the unpleasant roasting smell that the pig has not been fed properly. To me this a typical example of the "trusted farmers" supplying Tesco with a quality product then winding down the quality to hold the price. It is also typical of other meat products OVER TIME, especially bacon. Tesco Quality Dept must be aware of this. If not, the Dept Head needs sacking and start again! CEO NB! Unfortunately I suspect no one in Tesco monitors the feedback. So here we are and here we will stay??!.
Bit surprised, about the negative reviews of this product, I order this often and meats lovely and tender and enough for four generous portions. I will say the last few times I’ve order this the size is smaller 🙄 but still tastes nice.
I've never had a bad example of this joint. OK, so it has salt on it, but, if you cook it as instructed on the pack, it turns out perfectly every time. You will have to support the joint with skewers so that it stays upright in the pan, otherwise the crackling won't work. Very good value for money too.
Palm oil- Yuck!
Palm Oil??!!! Why??? Unethical and makes the oven dirty with unnecessary fatty smoke - which also goes all over the kitchen. The cut is too skinny and falls over, so that the fat is not on the top of this roast in the oven.
Way to much salt
ridiculously salty, literally couldn't eat it, a total waste of money
Disappointed as very tough.
Bought this as our usual finest loin steaks were unavailable and were very disappointed. After cooking following the instructions it was very tough and we struggled to eat it .Threw the rest away instead of using for sandwiches .
Way to salty, roast dinner ruined
Totally wasted a whole roast dinner, not allowed to add salt due to health reasons so got used to having food without, being fresh meat did not realise you had added salt not just added but swamped it with the stuff. Partly my fault never looked at ingredients but nothing was stated on front about it being salted pork. I use the fats to make the gravy so the salt that was in the meat was now also in the gravy which was then pored over the meal, it all ended on the compost heap was so salty it was inedible roast ruined.
Tasty but still with a bit of rind for crackling, well worth the price. Easy enough for four.
