Hit and miss

While going through my Jamie Oliver phase I was keen to try out his gammon steak recipe. Lovingly fried with a mustardy coating, I was eager to taste my steaks. Having bought 4 I was surprised and a tad deflated to find only one was actually tender and sinew free. 'Well it could be your cooking?!' I hear you say, but alas it was not. The other 3 had lots of sinewy gristle in nearly every mouthful. The crispy outer fat (the best bit) did not crisp up, but remained rubbery and hard. It's strange because the 4th was perfect! Cut like a dream. Melted in the mouth, and was surrounded by scrumptious crispy fat. But if I buy 4 and only 1 has any chance of being good, then I'm afraid I won't buy again.

Poor Quality

This was a regular on my shopping list as it is a favourite of my husband. However, the quality has been deteriorating markedly recently to the point where I will not buy it any more. The last one was going green, very thin, tough, and parts of the meat were grey in colour. Overall, half of the gammon steak had to be thrown away. Pity Waitrose/Ocado don't make bacon chops like M&S. They are much better. For the moment though, I am buying Waitrose thick cut bacon rashers and serving 3 of them instead of gammon. Much better and tastier.

Good quality

I buy this gammon regularly and have never been disappointed with the quality, which is consistently good. Pan fried in 5 minutes, the gammon is tender and moist. Recommended!
