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.

Dont bother

1 stars

Tesco used to do a pork loin joint that cooked in the bag and it was fantastic, so I thought this might be good, but no it is awful, crackling didnt crackle when I removed it there was 2 inches of white fat and when I took that of there was a small piece of pork which ended up with my husband having all the meat there was which wasnt much and I ended up with just veg and roasties, would have been better off with pork chops

Tiny portions

2 stars

It claims its for 4 portions. Hardly enough for 3 adults, and the crackling did not crackle which everyone likes.

Love this product

5 stars

Fabulous. Just as good as a restaurant meal

Wish I read the previous reviews before buying!

2 stars

Wish I'd read the reviews before I bought it. Followed the instructions to the letter but the "crackling" was not crispy. I removed the "crackling" and returned it to the oven for an extra 15 mins but it was then rock hard and totally inedible. There was a lot of fat under the rind and once that was removed there was just enough meat for the 2 of us. The meat was nice, very tender, but I bought the joint for the "crackling" so it was disappointing. Think I'll stick to pork steaks in future.

Don't waste your money

1 stars

We bought two of these and will NEVER buy again. I should have read the reviews which were all correct. Unable to make it crackle at all and the meat lasted one meal only after the fat had been cut off and given to the dog!

Potentially nice if marketed correctly

3 stars

Cook for 1.5 hrs at 160, but wash off peppercorns and don't expect crackling to work this is a bacon joint and best take off the rind part way through cooking. Don't overcook.

Beg to differ from negative feedbacks.

5 stars

Judging from the comments I must be the only one that raves about this joint. Bought 2 this week because it was on offer. We are not big meat eaters so 1 pack is fine for 2. If cooked according to the instructions it is fine, very succulent meat and very crunchy crackle which we love. We both love peppercorn so the amount on top was great.

Not Crackling

1 stars

The meat was fine, it just did not crackle. We followed the instructions exactly and the skin just toughed like leather. A waste of money and Crackling Pork Loin is a misleading description

Not the best unfortunately

3 stars

The meat itself was quite nice but there was far too much pepper on it. Washed most of it off before cooking but there was still a lot left. Instructions for crackling was hopeless. Took crackling off and returned it to the oven on its own for a further 45 minutes. will not buy again or recommend unless you are a lover of black peppercorns.
