The steak I had was very tough even though I tenderised it but my main concern was that it had a layer of gristle running through it which was difficult to avoid. I only managed to eat half of it. Unfortunate, because I have had the steak before and it was good
Hit and miss
Bought two. One was lovely, the other was very grisly and unpleasant.
I have never had such tough steak
30% skin and fat
Bought two of these. One OK. T'other awful - on turning it over most of that side was covered in skin (75 grams of skin and fat in a 255 g product = 30%). To make up the weight a thin slice of beef had been added on top. Not good enough.
a stringy fatty mess
We buy 3 Tesco fillet steaks every week and decide
We buy 3 Tesco fillet steaks every week and decided to try Tesco Finest Rump for a change, as rump is supposed to have more flavour. The first week was as expected of a good quality rump steak, the second purchase on the tough side, but the third was absolutely inedible with clearly visible greyish gristle lacing the entire product. The worst steak in all my life. Couldn't even cut it with a serrated steak knife. Will be giving it a clear berth in the future. Must admit even the fillet doesn't always meet expectations.
Best chosen in store
This was cooked very carefully but was unchewable due to fat and hard tissue. This "steak" as a result had to be thrown out.
This steaks a bargain . Good size . It cooked perfectly for me in butter and garlic rested it well . No fatty bits . Will buy again

quality is good depending how you cook it. I am a single household and this steak gives me 2.5 meals- I cut it in half - the first half I use for normal steak (medium rare) - jacket spud and veg - I tenderise my steak - always have done - the second piece I tenderise and use in a stir fry - I have never had a bad piece - so I don't understand the bad reviews - perhaps you can't cook is all I can say
