Very nice not to runny not to thick gravy normally have 1 on a Thursday
Tastes like soapy dog food
This is awful. The tiny pieces of steak taste like a mouthful of soap. The gravy has the texture of dog food jelly (although it doesn’t taste too bad). The steak is just so disgusting and inedible. Don’t recommend at all. Maybe try it if it’s on sale.
Enjoyed but could be better
I'd expected something a bit better from Fray Bentos. The flaky pastry is excellent but the filling resembled little cat food chunks, not bad tasting but not enough of them in rather a lot of gelatinous gravy. Not bad, I'd buy one again but would like to find more of the meat substitute filling within.
DONT LIKE THE SEE THROUGH JELLY GRAVY FRAY BENTOS!
I've given it 3 stars because I like the Veggi Balti one and do actually love the pastry with Fray Bentos pies. Some of the other reviews are right, you don't get a lot of veggie chunks and beans, that I can live with, because it tasted ok. HOWEVER, DA DA DAAAA - THE JELLY GRAVY!! NOPE! FRAY BENTOS FFS - you can make lovely gravy sauce for the Vegan Balti one, PLEASE do the same for this. SEE THROUGH JELLY IS NOT repeat NOT what we want! What anyone wants?? surely to goodness! I cooked this properly and the pastry puffed up great, but the Jelly was there all wobbly and awful, like gone off cat food. Hope that helps! I have another 6 in the cupboard, so will be eating blind folded with chips! :-P
Frey Bentos Vegan steak and Kidney bean, what can I say, apart from that Frey Bentos should stick to what they know. This is the worst vegan dish I've ever tasted. It smelled revolting, I've smelt pet food better than this. It tasted horrible. I had to have something stronger in taste to get rid of that pie out of my mouth. So I give this product ZERO STARS, BUT UNFORTUNATELY I HAVE TO GIVE IT ONE STAR TO POST THE REVIEW.
I don't usually leave reviews, but this was so bad I felt I had to warn others! This was such a disappointment. As a vegan for over 30 years, the current explosion of choice for vegans has been wonderful, but this pie is a joke! The filling was mainly a clear jelly like 'gravy' in which were around 10 tiny pieces of soya and 3 kidney beans - I kid you not. Soggy pastry, although that may have been expected of a tinned pie. Horrible.
I expected a lot more filling. Lots of dark jelly
I expected a lot more filling. Lots of dark jelly with a few bits of meat substitute. Won't be buying again. Haven't found a meat-substitute pie that's better than the Linda McCartney ones. They're great. I'll keep buying them!
Horrible...couldn't eat it, hardly any filling wit
Horrible...couldn't eat it, hardly any filling with horrid gloopy gravy
Once bitten, twice shy!
Generally, just about adequate for one. I would prefer a higher price-point matched to a more substantial filling. I'm not tempted to buy another.
Looking forward to a quick easy lunch. Pastry looked lovely and crunchy but very soggy underneath but the biggest disappointment was there was hardly any filling, 14 small pieces of the vegan steak and even less kidney beans, not enough for one let alone two. The gravy is also pretty off putting as within a minute of dishing up it turns into a disgusting jelly. I won't buy again, my son said there certainly wasn't enough for two he could've eaten the whole pie and still not feel full.
