Disappointing, meat was tasteless and dry and crackling didn't crisp up all that well despite following the cooking temperature and timing to the letter. Shan't buy this again

Maybe I was unlucky but not as unlucky as the pig

2 stars

Sadly, the pig dies in vane. Crackling never developed. Suspect that the rind was too far below the edge of the supplied tray for a fan oven. Meat tender but....................

No crackling on ours!

2 stars

If it's crackling that you are after don't waste your money; instead rather a rubbery, chewy rind.

Poor value

Couldn’t believe my eyes when I took this out of the oven as the meat had shrunk so much. After cutting off the fat I was left with 3 extremely small slices of pork - enough for one sandwich!

Very,, very tasty!

2 stars

Once cooked over a third was thick fat. The meat itself was tasty, but there was so much fat to cut off that the joint became really small

Cracking pork joint for two.

5 stars

I have had a few of these joints now - just enough for the other half and myself. Really tasty and moist. The crackling is divine, I follow the instructions and add a little salt to the rind before cooking. Beautiful - another lovely Sunday lunch for the two of us.

The peppered crackling is far too powerful.

1 stars

We regularly order Tesco Pork Crackling Leg Joints which are delicious. In error I ordered this Crackling Loin Joint. It was a great disappointment, far far too much pepper. Only tried a tiny bit of the crackling which wasn't crisp and I choked. I had cooked it as per the instructions. Neither my husband or myself wished to eat it, not only was it unpalatable there was a serious risk of choking! Stick to the Crackling Leg Joint!

Don't buy it!

1 stars

This was awful! Despite cooking it as per instructions it tasted horrible, was tough and fatty. I felt it was a cheap cut of pork dressed up to look expensive. Won't be buying it again.

Wash off the pepper and it’s delicious!

4 stars

I buy this regularly - but it takes a bit of prep. I wash off the pepper - there’s far too much of it. I then roast the joint as per the instructions but while the meat is resting, I cut off the crackling and whack that back into a hot oven to crisp. The meat is always succulent, juicy and very tasty.
