I've bought this when available, as it makes a wonderful Sunday Roast. I cook in the slow cooker, on low for around 7 hours. I thought the 1st time I had been lucky, but each time since I've cooked the joint, I've had the same results. It's worth every penny, as we all enjoy it and usually enough left for sandwiches the next day.
Tasty , Juicy and tender
I like others were worried this would be tough, I cooked as instruction and I will never buy another joint now, it was tasty juicy and tender. We all enjoyed it and hubby found it very easy to carve with no waste.
Fabulously tasty and tender beef when slow cooked
Ordered 2.0kg Tesco Finest Beef Roasting Joint as a special treat because it was on offer but Tesco Slow Roasting Beef Joint 2.3kg was substituted. I nearly rejected the substitution but so pleased I didn't. Cooked the beef on gas Mk 1 for 12 minutes per 100g for well done, as suggested. Left to stand for 20 minutes before carving. Result was fabulously tasty and tender slices with not a hint of chewy bits - best beef we've had in years. Left remainder of joint in fridge overnight and following morning cut perfect slices right to end without any crumbling - looking forward to several more delicious meals from the freezer!

I Brought this by mistake and was worried about the quality when I saw how long it took to cook and on such a low temperature, but followed the instructions to the letter and it was Lovely and tender and full of flavour, will be ordering it again.
This joint was slow cooked and it was delicious, no waste, just good quality tasty meat.
I browned this at first in a pan, to seal it, then transferred it to my Slow Cooker. I added onions, carrots, and Turnip, and some gravy ........... and it was amazing! I'd definitely buy this again.
Delicious and tasty, great value
Fantastic quality, cooked in slow cooker for 5-6 hours on low, beautifully tender and moist and not fatty at all, just enough fat to render down and add flavour. Served up with roast potatoes, carrots and parsnips. When cold I slice leftover beef and add a couple of crumbled up slices to Soba wok style noodles when almost cooked to warm through, makes another great meal. Also put sliced beef in gravy and freeze for a quick meal Very little wastage and excellent value
Beautiful joint very tasty and good value it melts in your mouth
Cut it up yourself for beef dishes
It's cheaper for me to get a kilo one of these and the Boswell Carvery joint and cut up than it is to buy fresh cubed beef. I get three good portions for two people and as long as it's slow cooked in things like a stew it's good. It also takes an overnight marinade and then I can use it in any recipe for Indian food, Mexican, etc. Marinade in garlic etc and cut into lovely beef strips for Italian or Greek dishes. You just have to have a sharp knife to get as much as possible off the joint.
Soft and delicious
I cooked in my slow cooker for 4.5 hours on Medium with beef stock, celery, carrots, onion and swede. It was absolutely delicious and so soft. My joint was about 1.3kg. If I cooked again I would reduce the cooking time to 3.5 hours. I blitzed up the stock and veg and it made the tastiest gravy too.
