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.

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!

Nice when its not been burst by poor packing

Same as another review on here - packed poorly resulting in the pack being burst. This has happened 3 times now in a row so have given up ordering them. However, when they have arrived unscathed they have been good packets of mince!

Lovely when on a diet

This is a great product, it freezes the defrosts well and keeps its taste and texture. Its low in fat so ideal for slimming recipies such as spag bol - just add tinned tomatoes!

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.
