How much was it before?

Hot BTW, will grab some later. Must be around half price.
#2
Think it was £11.48 per kg !!
#3
hi,

the 11.48 would have been for british beef.

Irish beef is currently coming on offer after the dioxin scare last year (the one when all irish pork was removed from supermarket shelves). It has not been around for a while and their industry is trying to re-establish confidence in irish beef.

living in Aberdeenshire, I wouldnt buy it myself as the local beef is far better, but it is cheap and the dog likes a treat. (she usually gets brisket).

Well the sticker on the Irish Beef is marked up at £11.48, crossed out with the new price of £4 per kg. I have always bought Irish beef and never had a problem with it.
You have one lucky dog ;-)

I'm from Aberdeen too and agree the local beef is unbeatable. Live too far away now tho. Would have to try some before I pass comment, and seems cheap enough to give it a go providing my store has any left of course!

In my Asda the offer was on both British and Irish beef. The carton tells you the farmer that reared the beef. The british beef I bought was from Yorkshire which is reasonably local to me.

According to the ads in the papers it's 3 pack per customer... but there was no sign in store saying that.
#8
I LOVE rump steak, shame theres no asda for soo many miles :(
#9
Thanks, just popped down and got 5 packs very cheap. I normally only get fillet butwill try this and hope it's not too tough.
#10
Ordered 3 kgs for delivery tomorrow,my sister was meant to order me the same from tesco when it was on offer but only got me 1 pack.God i love steak mmmmmmmmmmm....
#11
£4 per kg is almost save 2/3rds off Sainsbury prices. I can only buy their taste the difference brand in my local store and thats about £13.99 a kilo. Ackkk!!!

Absolute bargain. Its a shame I am almost 10 miles from any ASDA store.


HOT HOT HOT and yummy!!!
#12
Not voting this cold,but we have never had a decent piece of meat from Asda ever at any price,and we have tried lots of times.This one may be different so I will miss out.They may be buying it in from Ma**o - so we will have definately missed a bargain.
#13
hot ordered 2 kilo
#14
great offer but there quality of meat is disgusting lots of fat an gristle id'rather pay alittle extra and buy from tesco or waitrose
#15
If anyone is passing Aberdeen,call in and get me a lorry load.The thought of it is making my mouth water.There's proper meat boyo.
#16
Wasn't Irish beef withdrawn a few months back for being contaminated with dioxins?
#17
Just picked up a couple. They look nice actually, not too fatty.
To be honest, any kind of Steak when I was growing up was a luxury, fat or no. So for a pound or so for a steak with some chips and onion this makes a good honest meal in my eyes.
Cheers OP. HOT!

""[I'm from Aberdeen too and agree the local beef is unbeatable. Live too far away now tho. Would have to try some before I pass comment, and seems cheap enough to give it a go providing my store has any left of course.""

-Ok i was a butcher for 10 years and i can agree that Ab Angus beef is of a higher qualility than most. BUT,....... nowadays every farmer in any country is proud of their livestock, including the "Irish". So give it a try and you will be quite suprised i think.

I've found it's better to buy a 2kg joint of topside/rump when it's on offer @ half price - then cut it into smaller joints and/or steaks. For some reason it tastes better than the stuff they sell as steak - and there's definitely less fat/gristle. The last one I bought was from Sainsbury.

The carton tells you the farmer that reared the beef. The british beef I bought was from Yorkshire which is reasonably local to me.

The cartons give you details on a farmer who supplies Asda, if you read it says nothing about it being the farmer who supplied THAT meat. It's a pure marketing thing, not giving you any more information about what you've bought.

If you can eat topside fried (unless it is micro thin!) then you have sharper teeth than me!

Most people moan about topside pot-roasted never mind fried!
#25
Its Britsih Beef!!!! Bought 6 packs from ASDA Basildon this morning, Great value, my wife works for Waitrose she reckons you would have to multiply the ASDA price by 5 to get the waitrose price.ABSOLUTE BARGAIN
#26
Delivery arrived this morning and i only received 1 600g pack instead of the 3 kg i ordered.Surprised to have got some at all to be honest as i thought it would have been sold out.
#27
Lets be clear this is rump steak. It all tastes the same to me. I would happily buy enough of this to feed me for the week at this price.

You can look at the meat if worried about fat or grissle.
#28
I have always bought Irish or British Rump Steak from Asda, I have always enjoyed it and I'm quite fussy when it comes to meat. I remember buying some from Tesco's once, only realised when I got home that it was from Paraguay or somewhere like that!! Surely, that cant be as fresh as local stuff??
#29
Had some tonight, absolutely beautiful, nice sized piece for £1

It doesn't all taste the same to me, but I am quite happy to buy it, as rump is a very good flavoured cut of beef, although not particularly noted for it's tenderness. Be careful not to overcook it though, as going too far can render even the most decent meat tough! (I am no fan of very underdone though, I don't particularly want the parasitic & bacterial load it may potentially carry as part of the deal!)

As for fat and gristle, fat IS a big part of the flavour, so even if you cut it off before eating it, it bastes the meat as you cook it with the fat; as for gristle, well, it isn't invisible either, so cut it off before or after cooking, it's easy enough to see!

Who wants FRESH beef!?

That's the problem with supermarket meat, it is almost still twitching, and if it has had 28 days in cold storage to mature means they all charge much extra!

Imported beef is often "matured" in primal cuts in vacuum packs (as is much supermarket meat anyway) on the way over by sea, and it is as a result a slightly different flavour & texture as a result of the longer time in transport. You either love or hate this - personally I find I like the slightly more mature taste and the increased tenderness & darker colour; but if you expect meat to be tough and bright red, then that's the way the cheaper supermarket cuts are - edible, but invariably a bit tougher and milder flavoured.
#32
Well this stuff is tender enough. Did it 4 minutes on each side - which was too much really but it was still easy to cut and eat. Very impressed.
#33
Normally I would be all over a deal like this but I just find asda's butcher meat to be tasteless and pumped full of water and fat.

I will pass.
#34
Damn dinosaurs cleared my Asda out.
#35
Had this for my tea tonight as was lovely, hope they have some more tommorrow as will get a few

Enjoy forking out three times as much for your steak then,obviously the local butchers will have a higher quality but for £4 a kg are you saying it ain't a good deal.

If your that much of a food snob then i pity you.

That is utter rubbish, every time a thread on meat or chicken comes along, the same old rot is trotted out:-(

Meat, whoever is selling it, unless labelled as containing water or added fat HAS to be labelled as such, and I can assure you, meat, in common with MANY other products are routinely sampled for compliance. Such a thing is NOT common. Any added fat, such as is wrapped around ultra lean joints such as Silverside to enable a good result when roasting is labelled, but more than that, it is physically TIED onto the joint! Turkey, due to it's appalling dryness often has added fat eg. "Butterball" turkeys, again, all labelled.

Lots of meat products are full of water and any number of other ingredients, such as bacon or cooked meats but NOT this type of raw meat.

The lack of taste is another issue, and is partly due to quality, and of course may well be related to what you pay for it, apart from the obvious problem we all have of getting older and loosing ability to taste of food; however buying meat that is largely fat free, means the absence of fat does account for some of the lack of taste, as it is precisely this reason fat IS added to meat products as it adds taste and more succulence!

Precisely the (one) reason I don't get deliveries any more... what you get is usually poorly related to what you order! This applies to ANY of the supermarkets :-(

The only way I would use them is when I am physically incapacitated

None in Frome or Trowbridge - maybe sold out - but not even advertised
