Disappointed as very tough.

2 stars

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

1 stars

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.


4 stars

Tasty but still with a bit of rind for crackling, well worth the price. Easy enough for four.

Favourite roast with delicious crackling

5 stars

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

1 stars

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.


1 stars

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

5 stars

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

What's going on with the salt?

4 stars

Very lean, tasty and tender pork but way too salty, why are you adding salt to fresh joints of meat Tesco??? We are more than capable of adding salt if we CHOOSE to, we shouldn't have it imposed on us. Get rid of the salt

Unbelieveably Salty!

1 stars

This product was unbelieveably salty. Was pretty much inedible even for those who like a touch of salt. Not just on the outside either. Even taking cooked pork from the centre and the salt could still be tasted. No way is the Nutritional Information correct at 2.5% salt - more like 5%+. Buy fresh pork joints without added salt and do your own crackling.

Extremely salty

3 stars

The meat was OK but why was it covered in salt. Even washing the salt off, the meat was still to salty. Please don't salt it. Surely those who want salt on it are more than capable of adding salt themselves
