Will vote hot but we've had some really crap meat from Tesco.
#2
Agreed last Tesco Rump steak I purchased was tough and tasteless! I guess we should have supported the local butchers more!
#3
Rump steak IS tough and tasteless.

Doesn't matter where you get it from.

Ever since the mad cow export ban was lifted, it has been difficult to get decent beef.

i dare you to ask any tesco butcher the important questions 1. when was it killed 2.what country did it originate 3.if it is fresh why the hell they pack it in plastic to get it too the shops when they have answerd go to morrisons and ask the same questions then you will know why the meat tastes horrible and bland !

do you ever see any animal running aroung with a plastic coat on A.NO so why the hell would you buy meat packed in it, oh i know why cos mc donalds is closed and ya dont know that fruit and veg also comes NOT in cans.

lol my rant over for the day

supermarket meat is invariably poor quality, Morrisons is garbage for steak
#11
For what its worth, I bought some of this from the butcher's section of the Hermiston Gait Tesco at the weekend. I deliberately asked them to cut it in a 2lb piece so that I could cook it as a roast instead.
Very nice it was too.
#12
HOT price, I think that's cheaper the ASDA's smartprice fry stuff, and it's got to be nicer than that!
#13
Only decent meat I've had from Tesco was some stewing beef, and that's because just about anything is good once it's been simmering in Guinness for hours.
#14
At that price, it's excellent for stews or braising. Heat!
#15
Seriously, lol... I buy most of my meat from Costco, however if Tesco have a deal on i normally buy a few steaks. You can cook any steak and it will be tasteless, add seasoning that is where most of the taste comes from, Rump is not the best cut however it is still a half decent cut.
#16
Even the Tesco Fillet is terrible; this is not a good deal for cost - unless you're using it for stew as Pelican noted above!
Or, burgers.
#17
Touch and go - same with Sainsbury's and Morrisons. Waitrose are a bit better.
Some are lovely, some tasteless and tough.

Sorry but this post is ridiculous. Have you ever been to a farm in your life? If you had, you would know that cows do indeed wear plastic coats, especially if it's raining.

And fruit and veg DOES come from cans. The grocers you go to take them out of those cans for display purposes only. How do you think those fruit n veg grow to be so big with all these predators and tigers and monkeys waiting to eat them as soon as they raise their heads above ground?

You sir are downright ignorant. Some people really make me shake my head in anger sometimes...

I completely agree and was going to say much the same thing in a less elquent way...

Don't worry I'm sure pretty much anyone who read his comment is just thinking "ignorant" to themselves too :)

First, I'd like to openly admit - I'm VERY fussy with my food. Whether that has any bearing on what I have to say - only you can decide.

I hate fat. Especially the sinew of it, that is always taken off. I also refuse to eat meat 'on the bone' as it were, because the thought of it just makes me feel ill.

As a result, you can probably guess that I'm more of a fillet tenderloin type person. Because it's so much more expensive, I don't tend to purchase these as often as I'd like - but when I do I shop around. A lot of the time, unfortunately, the fillet tenderloins are either sold out, or haven't been delievered yet so I then have to resort to buying a leanest rump steak I can find. I've shopped at the majority of supermarkets because of this, despite their being a Sainsbury's literally 5 mins from my house.

Sainsbury's are pretty awful when it comes to meat IMO. They deliberately cover the 'fattiest' parts of the steaks with labels so you can't see it - or, what they've recently started doing - copying M&S - is to 'shrink wrap' the steaks into a plastic 'plate' meaning you can't accurately judge what it looks like once it gets its form back into shape. Although tender, they're very fatty - and this goes for their fillet steaks too. In the last 4 years, I've only had 2 decent steaks from there, and ironically it was not from their Taste the Difference range (premium) but the normal Sainsbury's range.

Tesco's are exactly the same, except they don't seem to be as tender. They too also try to 'hide' the fat with stickers. The steaks also don't appear to be very tender, as some people have already mentioned them being quite chewy.

Morrisons aren't bad, but as I don't have one near (and I mean within a short car ride away) so I couldn't possibly offer an opinion.

Asda are hit and miss. Some days their steaks are absolutely amazing... others, it feels like they've imported the meat from Iraq.

The best steaks I've had (minus of course those from a butcher), have all come from M&S. Of course this also comes at a premium as they're known for not actively competing on prices, especially when it comes to things like steak. However, if I hazard a guess - I'd probably say about 90% of the meat I've purchased from M&S has been worth the extra trip.

They also seem to suffer from supply problems, so I've had both fillet AND rump, and they've tasted really nice each time.

Personally - it's my opinion that you really do get what you pay for. I'd happily pay an extra £1 or 2 for the same cut of meat from M&S knowing that it's going to taste 10x better than those offered by the likes of Sainsbury's or Tesco's. It's disappointing to me, because the nearest M&S to me is literally 5 miles away (as the crow flies), and I'm without a car at the moment.

My advice would be to simply shop around first and see where you would prefer to get your meat from. Companies won't learning they're selling bad food until they realise the customers are going elsewhere.

If you do opt for M&S, I highly recommend the pack of 2 Beef Wellington's for £10. Obviously works out at £5 each, but you're getting a nice sized fillet steak and all the trimmings for less than what you would pay at a local supermarket. Their are deals out there - just look around.

No, rump steak can be tough (especially if overcooked - medium rare is best) but it is one of the tastier cuts. Pay more for fillet if you like - it'll be more tender but lacks decent flavour.

Few people are able to cook steak properly at home.

Samurai - Surely if your fussy about your food you would go to a proper butcher??

I personally bought two kilos of the stuff early this morning for near on £14. I'll smash through that in a couple of days.

I agree that all I want is a good chew and high protein - I want to physically know that I have eaten a bit of steak, I want my teeth to ache!!!

Give me Sainsburys rib-eye from the deli counter any day, but be content in spending £6.50 on something you can smother in a sauce (if you so desire) and know you've had a good meal. Personally, a good flash in some garlic butter and the job's a good 'un.

Got some lovely half price rump in Mr M's the other week around £5.49 KG and very nice it was too. :)

Is this offer store specific? I asked in my local Tescos and they said they hadn't had rump steak on offer for a couple of weeks.
