I have had 4 fillet steaks from Tesco. Of the 3 ordinary ones two were fine, one with a lot of gristle. Today I had a "Finest" fillet steak: it was not a fillet steak, but put-together slices that only looked like a solid steak in the sealed packet. On opening this the "steak" fell apart into slices. It also contained connective tissue (gristle) that made 25% of it unchewable.. This will be the last steak I buy from Tesco.
Extremely disappointing. The steak was not as good as the normal Tesco fillet. Poorly cut and trimmed resulting in very uneven thickness making cooking to taste difficult. Also full of gristle and pipes. Not the finest at all.
Two packs of fat & gristle arrived in delivery, both returned.
Too expensive 50% price increase.
Enjoyed steaks up to now but huge price increase. No thankyou
A Terrible Steak.
Virtually inedible! We have had a number of good steaks from Tesco recently which has surprised me for supermarket meat. However this steak was terrible the majority of the steak being full of gristle. A big disappointment.

Tough and Chewy Fillet.
Been buying the cheaper fillet steaks and thought I would give these a go. Eventually found 2 that looked worth buying but when opened they both had lots of fat hidden underneath, obviously not visible through the packaging. When cooked they were very chewy. On a positive note the dog's enjoyed them as they had most of them. My advice would be to stick to the cheaper one's
Too thick but cooked & tasted great when cut thin
Bought this for my Husband's birthday dinner. It was so thick I was concerned about it cooking all the way through (we like our meat to be totally dead) I decided to cut it in half so that it was 2 thinner pieces, it was no problem with a reasonably sharp knife and I felt a lot happier about cooking it. I dry fried it as my grill isn't great and he thoroughly enjoyed it. We will definitely order it again for the next special occasion.
For supermarket meat this is really quite good. I would recommend it.
