I bought this for Easter, but we had a BBQ; weather was too good for roast!
Finally cooked it as a midweek roast. It was full of sinew, badly cut and not a true topside joint. The edible bits did have flavour, but the wastage makes this very expensive.
This really was an excellent joint, in fact the best we have ever tasted. Extremely tender and very tasty. As I was going to be out I cooked it for two hours at Gas Mark 4 instead of as instructed on label. Absolutely no waste either. Smashing!!!
