Pepper ruins it

1 stars

Decent piece of meat completely ruined by the addition of black pepper to the rind. It just needs salt, not pepper!!!

Bought for Sunday lunch yesterday. Followed instructions to a ‘T’ crackling didn’t crackle, meat was tough and no flavour. Will stick to normal cuts of pork in future.

This was absolutely terrible. I have never tasted anything so bad. No flavour and it was so tough we literally couldn’t chew it. Threw it in the bin.

Pepper overload, crackling didn't crackle and the joint was sooooo fatty. Very disappointing.

Meat was chewy.. 40% fat and the crackling would n

1 stars

Meat was chewy.. 40% fat and the crackling would not crisp up even though i put it back in the oven. The crackling had a strange fishy taste too. Needless to we did not eat it!

Dissatisfied meat eater

1 stars

First time ever that I have been disappointed with Tesco meat either prepacked or from over the counter. I have used the online shopping for some time now and have always been happy with the great service. The amount of fat on the joint was almost bigger than the edible meat. The only reason my husband and I ate the meat which apparently served four people, was because we had nothing else defrosted. Would I buy again, NO NEVER

Too much pepper for us!

3 stars

I agree with other reviews, the cooking time is not sufficient to allow for crackling to form, I removed the fat at the end of the cooking time and put it back into the oven to allow the crackling to form which it did eventually however it was inedible due to the huge amount of pepper on it. The meat itself was OK but I doubt I'd get this again!

Do not recommend this

3 stars

This was quite a fatty piece of meat and would barely be enough for 3 people. The lean parts were nice but I would not buy this again - disappointing.
