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.
Favourite roast with delicious crackling
Love these pork joints. Perfect roast dinner for two with some left for a meal the next day. The crispy crackling is truly delicious everytime!
Avoid at all cost
Wasted 2 hours cooking a family dinner, only to be ruined by the excessive salt on this product. Bearing in mind Sunday is the only day the family gets to sit down together, this is upsetting to say the least. Tesco what are you doing? Surely you have tase tasted this before approval for sale??? Deserves o stars, but no option for this; please avoid at all all cost.
This was not scored as so I had to remove strings to score ot myself. When I took strings off several loose pieces of meat fell off where thy had been stuffed under strings to make it look like a complete joint.These pieces just shrivelled away to nothing when I cooked it! Also ended up cutting my hand trying to score rind. Terrible
Lovely economic Roast, Perfect
Meals for 2 for 2 days absolutely delicious, crackling was crisp and tasty, I found salt level just right with a little apple sauce Perfect
