Product Description

Waitrose British Veal Topside

Waitrose veal is supplied by one farmer in East Anglia, who has been supplying Waitrose and Ocado since the early 90's. All the veal we sell is British and comes from calves that are born and reared on British farms. The British calves are reared and housed in well-ventilated buildings with plenty of natural light and straw bedding. They're fed a diet of Milk, Water and Cereal, that produces tender delicate meat. There is a close working relationship between the dairy farmers and beef producers to ensure that male calves from Waitrose milk production are offered a viable outlet in Waitrose Beef and veal production.

Sliced and pounded, seasoned, cooked for a few minutes in olive oil and butter, & a thimble full of Marsala, these escalopes were delicious.

Worst item ever

I have never before seen 2 pyramid pieces of grey stringy tough pieces of veal in my lifetime - there was nothing I could do to make a meal from this meat and had to throw it away - what an expensive waste, I am not happy that Ocado decided to send this to a customer rather than throw it away - clearly destined for a bin

Rating: 2 star out of 5


That will teach me to buy on offer without reading the reviews. As others have said, these big thick steaks rather than escalopes and I really wish I'd made the effort to pound them out as pan frying them made them incredibly tough and chewy even when cooked rare. Not much flavour either. Even on offer these definitely weren't worth the money

While we have taken care in preparing this summary and, to the best of our knowledge, believe it is accurate you should note that the summary product information (in particular the "Other Information" section) may change between the time you place your order on the website and the time your order is delivered (in this regard we rely on our suppliers to tell us of any changes in a timely manner so we can update our website). For example, as all meat and fish products are naturally farmed, there may be occasions when due to weather conditions we may need to source from alternative approved sources (and hence the product origin may change). Therefore, if you do require the most up-to-date product information following delivery of your order, please ensure you check the website for details.
If the summary product information contains a link to another party's website for further information on the product, please note that Ocado has no control over and no liability for the contents of that website.
You also need to be aware that for those service counter goods where we offer additional preparation services (ie removal of the head and tail of a fish or for a rack of lamb to be cut into cutlets), the price will be calculated based on the weight of the whole fish before the head and tail have been removed and the lamb rack before it has been cut into cutlets, should you request this service. The receipt and product label you receive will also show the actual weight of the whole fish and/or lamb rack (before the head and tail of the fish has been removed and the lamb rack has been cut into cutlets).
You should note that the picture images show only our serving suggestions of how to prepare your food - all table accessories and additional items and/or ingredients pictured with the product you are purchasing are not included.
