Product Description

This Waitrose meat is packed in flow wrap packaging which is made out of high quality material and developed especially for food use, this innovative packaging is robust yet lightweight.
The pack will contain a level of air to provide a cushion which protects the meat through transit. The height of the `pillow' can vary from pack to pack due to natural variances. This has no adverse effect on the meat itself and you can still expect the same high quality Waitrose meat no matter the height of the dome.
Our fundamental belief is that few things in life are more important than the food you buy. Good quality is essential.

From a long-established group of carefully selected British beef farmers and suppliers who share our values and commitment to:
Delivering the highest animal welfare standards
High quality beef, expertly prepared and matured for tenderness and flavour from prime cattle reared on a forage based diet
Working together to protect our environment and promote sustainable farming

We're always looking for ways to reduce our environmental impact. Which is why we're now using new packaging on a selection of our fresh meat. It reduces the amount of plastic by more than 50% and gives you the same outstanding quality product, with benefits that include:
Reduces waste
Less bulky
Easier to store

Makes a cracking lasagne!

Combined this with the Dolmio lasagne kit and made a banging lasagne. Also consider the ocado Quartz cheddar to grate on top, and throw in some mushrooms too. Excellent! Good times to be had by all using this mince. Mincetastic. Don't listen to the other mince haters, this mince shreds the competition.

not as good as it used to be...

We used to buy this beef regularly, then haven't used Ocado for a while, bought this last week, cooked it in a bolognese and found it to be chewy and gristly. Won't be buying again....

Reduced size not acceptable

Why do grocery companies feel like they can reduce the size of food portions we buy without us noticing? Why would 400 grams suddenly be acceptable as a portion when previously 500 grams was necessary to feed a household. Very disappointing!

the meat was off

I'm afraid the packaging on this product was be broken and the meat was off when we bought it.

This dish would be fantastic served alongside other starters on a mezze platter. The fresh herbs and spices impart a wonderful flavour onto the beef.
