Nice steak shame about the sizes

Bought 2 steaks which, although very nice were way out on the sizes, one was very small and the other was way over sized. We were luck in that we could make 2 decent sized steaks out of them but anyone just ordering a single steak would have been very disappointed

Too much fat

I bought a 250g steak and 51g of it was pure fat - not very good Ocado.

Rating: 1 star out of 5


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.

Rating: 1 star out of 5

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.

Rating: 1 star out of 5

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.

Steak Diane video

Steak Diane is one of Simon’s most popular recipes from Sunday Brunch so he has chosen to revisit it for the Daily Brunch viewers. It is a classic meaty restaurant dish, which is surprisingly quick and easy to make at home – perfect for impressing a date. Because the beef is the centre of the dish, Simon recommends using good quality aged steak. Part of our Daily Brunch with Ocado recipe collection.
