Not very nice. Tough and chewy. The fat has no crackling and is unpleasant. I love pork belly but would not buy this again.
Spoiled by herbs.
A lovely piece of meat . Spoiled by being smoothed with herbs. I stood and scrapped the meat and washed it. If I want pork I buy pork. If I want herbs I will put my own on. There is to much of this throwing herbs on food. Everything I like has herbs. I just want the meat and gravy perhaps.
Bought this as part of a price "offer" with a chicken product I buy regularly. Hugely disappointed, I know belly pork is fatty, but this was about 85% fat. My husband and I had it for a weekday dinner, we are not big eaters, but it could not be described as sufficient for two adults. The two stars are for the apple sauce which was very nice.
Needs A Quality Improvement
I have always found Tesco meat ready meals excellent but sadly this is not good enough. A modest portion but that was fine. What was not fine is that over 70% of that portion was loose flabby fat and the remaining meat was stringy rather than succulent. Surprisingly disappointing but looking at other reviews which I'd ignored due to other good experiences this product needs significant improvement.
Having never written a review for a food product in the past, I felt it important to review this product. The packaging was extremely large for this product in comparison to the small piece of pork inside. Once cooked I was unable to find any meat whatsoever on the joint, it was total fat. I turned the joint round and over, and cut it into pieces, but it was total fat. This product was completely inedible and totally disappointing. We had to have a meal with no meat on this occasion and I would definitely not recommend it. It is not cheap either. Very poor.
Great example of a slow cooked product.
We were watching a TV programme about celebs homes over dinner...and agreed they could not have anything better than we were enjoying. It really stands out as exceptional. Under wife's instructions (!) to order again.
This was disgusting. Just slimy fat and you needed
This was disgusting. Just slimy fat and you needed a microscope to find any meat
Had this on Sunday really enjoyable, plenty of meat, would have liked some crackling but the joint was not set up for that, I cooked it at 220 as requested plus the extra 10 mins, yes there was some fat, it is Belly pork after all, the fattiest cut, but plenty of meat, very tender, good flavour, and will have it again, would I recommend it, without a doubt. Well done Tescos.
Grim heap of pure fat
All fat and no meat. Was grim. Total waste of money.
Avoid at all costs
Terrible- how on earth can they sell this rubbish. Must be more than 90% fat.
