Tasty but travelled too far
Tasty enough but very surprised to see it was actually from NZ (New Zealand) but only packed in Dundee. This is most disappointing from an environmental point of view and the fact that I had read there was an abundance of Venison in Scotland and England for that matter!!! What happened to going local?
Last few batches have been poor quality
I've bought these a few times now and might possibly buy again on offer, but am losing a bit of interest, down to the poor quality of the last few batches I've received. They are very tasting and cook up nicely in our George Forman, very lean. But the last few trays have been very tough and many bits and area's inedible. Wouldn't pay full price again, but it's really one of the few brands that supplies venison, so I would possibly buy again on offer, if I was really craving it.
Not necessarily Highland Venison
Misrepresentation It gives the impression that it is Highland Venison when it fact it could be NZ venison. The only connection to the Highlands is that is where it is packed. All hidden in small writing on the back of the label I'm reporting this to Trading standards and Advertising standards.
I cooked the steaks as per instructions for medium rare and rested, whilst they were juicy and tender to eat, the taste was bland; wild they maybe but not 'gamey'. Disappointing.
Bought this meat for a special occasion - I pan fr
Bought this meat for a special occasion - I pan fried them and served with a porcini mushroom sauce and they were delicious.
Very tender and no gristle.
I love venison but these grill steaks tasted nothing like any venison I have ever had. Not unpleasant but over seasoned hiding the flavour of the meat. Gave the second one to the dogs who loved it, but they consider sheep poo edible.
Just had these steaks. Really good, succulent, tasty, not to gamey. Have just reordered.
Very poor quality
Very poor quality under the wrapper. There is another 'Venison Steaks' "from lean, tender succulent venison", on a different tray, but from the same company [Highland Game]. Get this latter one NOT the black tray one!
Ring the changes
Tender and juicy, not "gamey". Needed a fraction more cooking for our taste, but a good, flavoursome meal and a welcome change to the usual menu. Would like to see casserole venison too ... haven't seen packs for ages. And any chance of other varieties of game, Tesco?
