Good value for money, tender beef, a good standby
I felt this dinner was good value for money. I don’t often have ready meals but keep one or two in hand for unexpected busy times. I really enjoyed the beef dinner as a ready meal on one of those occasions. I had 3 very nice slices of roast beef, the potatoes were fine , also the little Yorkshire pudding and the peas and carrots, well peas and carrots are peas and carrots. I have had other dinners and on the whole they have been satisfactory, particularly appreciated at busy times. I am normally into home cooking but Tesco ready meals are a good standby. I did find the liver, bacon and mash meal very satisfactory but the next time I ordered one I had a substitution of just liver with, I think, some onions which was not suitable for a person on their own when a complete meal for one was expected. I certainly couldn’t eat a tray of just liver. In fact I believe it’s not good health wise to eat too much liver. Conclusively the ready meals generally are fine to have now and again. As well as the beef and liver dinners I have enjoyed cod and salmon dinners and a tagliatelle meal.
I usually buy the fresh beef dinner, thought I would give this a go as cheaper, well, there is a reason for that, it was not a patch on the fresh meal. The potatoes were horrible, did not crisp up at all, not much meat either. I cooked to instructions in the oven as well. Will never buy again, will stick with the fresh which is still great value, you get what you pay for.
Yes dry good quality and easy to cook
Good value (a lot cheaper than a take away). Plenty of every thing but I added an extra yorks pud and another veg. Takes a while to cook in the oven but better than microwave.
waste of money
will definitely buy again
Very tasty. Lovely beef, the first time we bought it the carrots were raw when cooked at the time it said but the next time we just left in the oven for an extra 5 mins. & they were perfect.
Would definitely keep one in the freezer
Jot sure what everyone else is talking about. You shouldn't expect a home cooked style roast when it's a frozen meal. The beef in this meal is easily the nicest frozen beef slices I've ever had, they melt in your mouth and just fall apart exactly like real beef would! Yes the veg is on the hard side but again it's a frozen meal... I don't mind my veg either way so it didn't bother rme at all!
bought two of these for my parents, they said it was awful.
These dinners are absolutely first class. I canno
These dinners are absolutely first class. I cannot understand some of the more critical comments. The slices of beef are of a very good standard, and the entire meal provides an excellent welcoming meal for a cold winter's night. Well done, Tesco!!
not nice at all
these are just awful, pay an extra 50p or so and get the birds eye version, so much nicer.
