Not sure why there are so many bad reviews, granted that the portion isn’t the biggest but I ordered two packets and both were as tender as they should be for pre packaged meat and 100% edible. We throughly enjoyed ours and would definitely get them again.
Tender meat and decent gravy. Portion wise, generous for one and meagre for two. Maybe the quantity is a reflection of the price as similar products in other supermarkets are weightier.
Old boots comes to mind.
Inedible and tough.
I don't usually write reviews about food, but this is awful. The packaging states that the beef has been slow cooked for 6 hours for tenderness. After following the instructions for oven cooking, we served the beef with our selection of veg. Tender? I could have chewed the sole of my shoe easier. It was so inedible, we fed it to the bin. Speak to your supplier Tesco, it does not meet the description.
will not feed 2 adults
Usually very good.
Have purchased this several times now and always been been happy but this week the meat was rather hard and chewy. The dogs enjoyed what we couldn't eat!
Excellent quality and taste, will buy again
The first thing to say about this is that the gravy is HALF, YES HALF the weight of the item. I weighed the packet with plastic wrapping. It weighed 419gm. I then separated the meat from the gravy and they both weighed 190gm. The packaging says the brisket weighs 75% of the packet. That should be 285gm NOT 190 gm. This is not a one off because I bought 2 packs and they were exactly the same. I wrote to Tesco and they said they have passed this down to the Suppliers as feedback, and they will do everything they can, to make sure this is rectified as soon as possible. But by looking at the feedback this has been going on for 18 months or more so obviously they are not going to do anything about this. If they were really concerned they would remove it from their shelves until the product meets the basic criteria, ie proper weight. Additionally the beef was really tough and stringy. Don't buy unless you're really desperate.
The meat was one solid block, tough & not shredded
The meat was one solid block, tough & not shredded like the picture at all. Very disappointed.
I think this product is amazing. Nothing else has to be said except I have bought this many times and it is Fantastic.
