I bought 4 today of the Hot Beef Tinned Curry Lean and Tender, usually £2.78, this is quality curry, much more taste and meat I have found than plastic packs ready meals. Tastes great with fried onions. Chicken available too. and Bolagnase These M&S curries have a lot of meat in the tin. I've listed the Beef Curry price, which is the best.

The quality of the meat in these cans are unlike anything i've seen in other prepacked meals or cans, hence the name, Lean and Tender.

Excellent value for money and far better tasting than other supermarket versions. Don't be put off by the curry being described as "hot"........ because it's not as hot as a Madras for example. Think of it more as Madras Lite and you'll be nearer the mark.:thumbsup:
#2
Great stuff, I'll be there tomorrow.
Voted hot, (not the curry), as previous poster said, not very hot)
#3
The beef one is mega, I'll be stocking up tommorrow that's for sure..have some heat op

"Tastes great with fried onions"

If you are going to chop and fry onions anyway then why not add one or two tablespoons of madras curry powder to those fried onions, fry for a few mins more, add some tomato puree, add meat of your choice, fry for a 5 mins until meat is sealed/browned, add a tin of tomatoes, put a lid on, simmer for 20 mins and have your own delicious, freshly made curry?

Buy cheap tinned tomatoes (often on offer), add whatever meat is on a deal, and it will be cheaper and tastier that the stuff in tins. Make a large quantity and freeze the extra. Simples.

Bargain nice one.

The beef curry is SUPERB..I always have a can available...have some heat!

Expiry on my cans was Oct 2012. I bought the last 4 tins of beef on the shelf. Think i'll try and buy some more. Only like the beef.

Bigsky; I often cook homemade curry, and keep the necessary spices at home ready. I also cook many other things from scratch. However, I also keep various tins and the odd frozen ready-meal for when I'm either so rushed I just don't have time or so knackered I just can't be bothered to do anything except 'beep-beep' the microwave! This is a good deal for those who choose to eat this kind of stuff, don't knock it just because you have so much time on your hands! ;-)

Is it british beef?

You have missed the point Bell: the OP was chopping and frying onions anyway - stirring in a couple of extra ingrediants is hardly time consuming. :thumbsup:
#12
good deal i guess, but no need for me cause i am half pakistani so i get curry every night.

also from my experience curry from a tin tastes like crap. how does this taste?
#13
I have always avoided tinned things like thins as it remind me of dog food, but if this may be worth a try
#14
It's very nice, I've had worse from a curry house!
#15
yaa for tinned meat .....

"You have missed the point Bell: the OP was chopping and frying onions anyway - stirring in a couple of extra ingrediants is hardly time consuming. "

No, I haven't missed any point, please re-read your full post followed by my full post. Going from two minutes to 20 minutes prep time is not justifiable for some people. Anyway, I'm gonna buy a couple of tins of this. Mind you, I'm not hopeful that it'll be that tasty, I just know it'll be edible and that I'll be able to add a little peri-peri to wash it down with... :-)
#17
Does this have peas in or anything other than the chicken/beef and sauce please?
#18
This is about the best you can get from a tin, it's really surprisingly good. I would say it's a lot better than the chilled pre-packed ones, and better than most take-aways. At this price they are a real steal.

totally agree with you. 20 mins to prepare from scratch is hardly back breaking for making your family a meal lol.

I dont normally buy tinned stuff either but last time I did it was when the M&S tinned beef chilli was on half price and was absolutely gorgeous - was really surprised at how nice it was.

Heat OP, and thanks Bigsky too :thumbsup:
#21
Middle class Fray Bentos. Alternatively a nice treat for the cat - don't forget to buy extra litter.
#22
Thanks, i often get various 'tinned' in at roughly same price for OH who'd eat it as a snack (greedy) , so will give these a try as it sounds like they are tastey.
#23
They are lovely, you have to mush it up a bit in the pan if your having it on a baked potato as they are really big pieces of beef in the can, very tender though, also it makes your wee smell of beef curry for some reason!
#24
"Tastes great with fried onions"............Good point Bigsky! Throw in a tin of tomatos and some curry and meat and Bingo!

This is a great example of one of the reasons I hate this site. People make a comment to the Op and other people feel the need to stick their noses in. As kindly expressed by Bell below:

Who cares Bell6367?! We all know its convenience food! We all know its cooked in 2 minutes in a microwave. A throw away comment was made regarding making curry and you feel the need defend the tinned meal and open up a pointless discussion totally besides the point. Is your life so sad that you really feel the need to have to defend the Op's posting and the usefulness of tinned food? We all know that already!!

Unless a comment from a user directly targets you or is factually incorrect. BUT OUT!!

I knew this was a HotUKDeal when i saw it!

I have the eye! :D

I was desperate one day to have a quickie meal. In the past I've always been put off by any sort of meat from a can, but I have to say that this is fantastic. Not only is it flavoursome, but the meat is good quality and there is plenty of it. It's really changed my mind about buying from other food outlets as M&S food is always top notch. Have some chilli heat (an oxymoron, if I ever heard one!)
#27
Guys i've changed it, its also tinned bolagnase as well.

Look people are talking crap about this being awefull, or "middle class" this or that. Its not, its actually LIKE THE ****ING LABEL SAYS Lean and Tender meat, and lots of chunks that is high quality meat, not fray bentos or some of the other crap canned meats i've seen, this is totally different.

The taste is really good. I just add it to the fried onions and simmer for 5 minutes to soften the meat up a bit and eat with rice or bread.

Great find Dapunk. I've been waiting for ages for M & S to reduce these 'cos I grudge paying the £2.78 but at £1.39 they're terriffic value for money.

I can highly recommend the Chicken Curry - great for an easy to prepare meal in the caravan too. Hope they've got some left in Llanelli, gonna try the beef & bolognaise too this time.

Heat added
#29
Sold out in Derby when i went today
#30
Will be great for my hubby when he's out at work - thanks!
Also, from the sounds of it would be lovely on a jacket. Will attempt to drag him to the nearest M&S to buy some!

Ta!
#31
Ill give this beef curry a whirl on some baked potatoes.
#32
Good find, heat added.
Reminded me to check the date of a can of M&S Chunky Steak I've had in the cupboard for a while, the sell by date is 13.08 04:whistling:
#33
Good to keep at work as a back up. Better than noodles!

Don't worry about it - food in cans lasts for years and years. Crack it open and it'll be absolutely fine !
#35
The beef and chicken curry ones only have 5 syns per tin (extra easy or red) on the slimming world diet.

The bolonase ones only have 3.5 syns so make a quick and diet friendly dinner. :)
#36
anyone know how long this deal is on for? not due to go back to M & S for a few days
#37
Only Hot Chicken curry or spag bol available in Peterborough, shame really because the beef is hotter and nicer.
#38
Good for camping and when time is very short. I prefer the bulk cooking / freezing method myself.
#39
Loads available in Belfast :thumbsup:

Got a couple of cans to sample first. :p
#40
The new Marks shop here in Eastkilbride says its the beef this week and the chicken was last week !!!
