More disappointing each week.
A regular purchase that gets more disappointing each week. Willingly pay extra for "Finest" but frankly the quality continues to reduce. More gristle, if this week's steak had been any thinner it would have classed as a slice rather than a steak. The only difference between Finest and ordinary is the size now. Sadly the same is true of Fillet steak and lamb steaks, Tesco quality control is either non-existent or has gone to sleep now - with the massive price increases you are putting on meat this is just not good enough.
I have never had meat so inedible as this steak it was RUBBISH
Very, very dissapointing. Quality control fail.
This was not up to scratch. I have had this product before and it was good, lived up to its' blurb. This one was very tough, lacking in flavour, shrank down alarmingly and was actually worse than the basic cheap rump! I cooked as I usually do, very hot pan, wee bit of oil, seasoned, seared both sides, reduced the heat a tad, turned regularly and used my temperature probe to monitor the internal temp. Once I'd got it to the right temp to rest for medium rare, I plated it on a warm plate and covered loosely with foil. Rested for 10 - 15 mins. Served. First cut with serrated knife told me straight away it was tough. Very tough. And so it proved to be. I did end up with aching jaw muscles too. I'm sorry Tesco but this is not acceptable, I regret buying this steak and there is no way it can be reccomended. I persisted with eating since I cannot afford to ditch food, especially something that was supposed to be a treat.
Really tender and lean. Will definitely buy again
Excellent quality. Lovely flavour, very tender, vi
Excellent quality. Lovely flavour, very tender, virtually no waste. Worth paying a bit extra
Tough, tasteless and awful. Best??? You're having
Tough, tasteless and awful. Best??? You're having a larf
Worst steak ever!
Worst steak ever. Every mouthful was full of gristle, we could not eat it, waste of money!
Better than sirloin.
Delicious! Cooked it medium rare, using a timer and it was tender and delicious. We halve it and its more than enough for two.
I've been buying a couple of these each week on a regular basis and they have usually been very good and sometimes absolutely excellent. Until last week that is, when we needed three steaks. What we got were the Goldilocks selection. My nephew's was fine, my son's had sinew about halfway across and half was good and the other half not so good. My steak looked grisly and in all honesty should never have been picked. The superior quality of the meat is why I chose to shop online at Tesco so this does not bode well for the future.
So much for finest, there was nothing fine about it, most of it was riddled with sinew and impossible to eat, my feeling is never order a steak online, inspect it in store.
