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.....

good for curries

I used this to make a beef mussamam curry at the weekend, with onions, coconut milk and tamarind paste. Cooked it slowly for 3 hours or so. It was delicious! Tender and tasty. Will be buying again.

Quite nice.

I didnt find any gristle, nor was there too much sinew. Braising meat is often best cooked slowly over a low heat for a long period. If you cook on too high a heat, too quickly, youre going to have problems.

Perfect for stews

I was really impressed with this meat. Used it for a stew and it melted in the mouth after a few hours - delicious! Also very reasonably priced I thought. Just keep in mind it's not fillet and does need a bit of time to make it delicious! But if you give it some love, it rewards you big time!

Beautiful Beef

Gorgeous beef. Gotta be cooked long & slow obviously, but made a stunning stew after just 2 hours. Can't understand ppl criticising it- maybe trim couple of chunks, tastes marvellous, but a decent slow recipe would make even he blandest meat taste good no? Lazysaurus alert.

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