We had this leg of pork for our roast yesterday. I have bought it many times and it is always delicious; the meat is tender and flavoursome with the most memorable, crispy crackling. As it was so good again, I felt compelled to share how much we enjoyed it - thank you Tesco!
Best sold to cobblers as it is tough as old boots
Got this a replacement for the large pork shoulder joint that was on offer - I did not ask for a substiitution - but was given one anyhow! The meat was disgusting - tough as old boots and worked out at twice the price of what had been ordered. This has happened before with other items and I am really now of the opinion that this is Tescos way of getting rid of high stock levels of sub standard products. BUYER BEWARE!!!!!!!
Intermediate size joint please Tesco
Tastes good and tender especially if cooked long and low in slow cooker but 4* because no size available between 1kg and 1.75kg especially as a significant portion of the 1kg is fat.
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
