More fat than meat. Had to eat around the fat which was throughout the steak. Near to 50% was fat and thrown away. Worst quality ever bought.

Not up to usual standard

Having ordered before and not been disappointed I ordered 2 of these this week, they arrived very small, with an extra thick layer of fat and cut like wedges, thick at the fat edge tapering to very thin at the lean edge, so not enough meat for a reasonable portion and not possible to cook evenly. Not what I expect from Waitrose.

More of starter than a main...

So like other reviewers, I had an issue with the size and quality. Got steak for hubby's dinner...the steak that arrived was roughly 150 grams, falling short by a whole 100 grams!!!! For a single serve, with a thick layer of fat and certain amount of gristle, there wasn't much meat left for a decent dinner. I'm not having great joy with most meats I get from Ocado, which is a shame as I've had the least level of any other delivery issues from them.

Inconsistent sizing

The steak itself is quite tasty, however I ordered two steaks, one of which was an acceptable 216g, but the other was 384g. At almost double the estimated size this exceeded my needs and cost much more than anticipated. Surely it's not that difficult to choose steaks within +/- 10% of the estimated weight?

Best Flavour to Value Steak

I have gone through most of the Ribeye / Sirloin / Fillet steaks available on Ocado and it is quite hit and miss. I hate paying good money for poor quality meat but these individually packed Sirloin Steaks taste great every time and do not go off before the Best Before Date unlike some others. Have bought 3 times now and not been dissapointed so far...
