Was a bit worried about the quantity in the pack to start of with but it turned out to be plenty for a stew which served five with plenty of root veg. Tasty and tender after a 4 hour cook. Nice size pieces and no horrible bits.

Rating: 2 star out of 5


Bought this for ease but am very disappointed with the quality and lack of flavour. Shall not be buying again.

Rating: 4 star out of 5

Good texture

Lean with no waste. Slow cooked in Guiness, so can't comment too much about the taste, but everyone wanted a second helping.

Rating: 5 star out of 5

Very good!

Have bought this about five times now and each time it has been lovely. I chop some onion, carrot, swede and parsnip. Put all with the meat in a covered dish with Kent's kitchen beef stock made up with hot water and pour in a bottle of ale. Slow cook for a few hours, thicken with gravy powder once cooked if required...lovely!!! Tender and tasty :-) Ordering this every week now!

better than other supermarkets

I've been buying stewing/braising steak for years hoping to find some that will eventually turn melt in the mouthy once cooked for long enough but to no avail. I ended up with little rock hard lumps of inedible shoe leather. Until this. Cooked a stew and voila, perfect soft melting meat. Flavour was great, too, and will now only buy this unless I want to make little missiles to fling at door to door double glazing salesmen.....

Plan ahead and stock the freezer with some comforting stews so you need only thaw them and pop them in the oven when needed.
