Disappointing in every way. The beef was paper thin, the gravy was like water, the carrots were hard (even the small ones), the yorkshire pudding was tiny.. Saving grace the peas were fine and it was inexpensive. Would rather pay twice the price and get a decent edible meal

Cooked from frozen for 45 mins as instructed. Wife says everything hard, even peas. Cooked for extra 4 mins in microwave. Still tough, Yorkshire pudding uneatable. Why was previous ROAST beef dinner discontinued as that was lovely? It seems things we really like become unavailable.
Very bizarre flavour to the meat
The veg was good, yorkshire pudding could have done with 10 minutes less than the rest of the meal as after 45 minutes on 150 degrees it was burnt. Didnt taste like Beef at all, taste more like Kidney which im not a fan of. Very odd flavour to the meat
Better than I expected
I was a bit doubtful about ordering this after reading some of the reviewers' comments but I needed a standby meal and decided to give it a chance. OK, so there wasn't masses of meat but enough and it was tender and tasty. The roast potatoes were a lot nicer than I've found with similar products and the Yorkshire was just the right consistency. I did add some fresh runner beans but the veg provided would have been fine alone. And I really liked the gravy. I would be quite happy to order another to keep in the freezer.
these used to be a good wee meal now you soul your
these used to be a good wee meal now you soul your shoes with the beef and potatoes are brick hard as well
Not as nice as I thought it would be
Beef, very nice, vegetables and gravy also but potatoes were like concrete and yorkshire pud too soft. Might have been better in the oven rather than microwave.
Since the potatoes are now small ones, I find if I follow the microwave directions the potatoes hard as bullets SO take the potatoes out of the container the same time as the Yorkshire pudding then cook the rest for 8 minutes, then add the potatoes and cook for 4 minutes then add the Yorkshire pudding and cook for 1 minutes. I find doing it like this I get softer potatoes
COULD BE BETTER.
IT WAS OK AND A HASSEL HAVING TO COOK STUFF SEPARATELY
Well worth trying
Very good but I would have liked two of the very small Yorkshire puddings.
Outstanding Sunday, or even midweek meal.
The Beef was succulent and flavoursome. The roast potatoes, Charlotte I feel, were exquisite. Carrots and peas were plentyfull and sweet flavoured. The Yorkshire pud I feel should be a bit bigger 30 to 50%, would be nice. Need better instruction on cooking. Overall my freezer will certainly have a few of these meal in it.
