Minced beef - £1.00 for 500g @ Asda

6y, 7m agoFound 6 years, 7 months ago
I know some people are above eating this, I know some people won't feed it to their dog, and I'm fully expecting a lot of flack from people who obviously have superior DNA because their highly advanced sense of gustation cannot fathom that some people actually like it. However I shall post the deal anyway, if only to see how up themselves some people are today.

Seen in Asda today, 500g packs of fresh mince for a quid. Fill your boots, or your dog bowls.

Even more frustrating than the comments are the cold votes. If you would or wouldn't eat it is irrelevant. Is it a good deal or not? I wouldn't buy this stuff, but it doesn't stop the price being excellent. Voted hot.

Sounds good to me, although i'd maybe shell out a bit more for the lean steak stuff they sell. Voted Hot.

Couldnt agree more.

Personally, I only get the lean mince.

Would I know the difference if this was served to me already cooked? Probably not...

Besides which, its irrelevant - this is a great deal.

Hot from me.
#7
Good deal, but too much fat content for me!!! yuk!
#8
this is the "middle mince" right? the one in between bottom of the pile and steak mince?

If so, this is not to bad and an excellent price.
#9
It is a bit fatty, but as with most mince a lot will come out while cooking. Spag bol tonight I think :)
#10
sounds good ...... hmmmmm home made lasagne anyone? you can gring the garlic bread
banned#11
Yeah this is above the Smart Price crap (which is quite horrendous tbh) so pretty middle-of-the-line.

Fine in a spag bol.

Good tip for removing excess fat is once you have have browned the mince transfer it to a strainer and pour a kettle of boiled water through it. Then back in the pan to add the tomatoes etc.

Does this melt the fat?

If it's too fatty for you, then drain it once it's browned. It's quite easy. ^^^made me laugh!!! Didn't know they bothered with Chemo for dogs. What a strange world we live in. Kids in Africa dying because they haven't got a £5 mosquito net and we spend thousands on Chemo treatment for dogs.

HOT DEAL BTW!

Good price, cottage pie tonight I think! :)

I got help with it from the blue cross for being on working tax credits so only cost us £10 a week for 8 weeks then he passed away

Well said in the description, it seems to happen with every food offer.
#20
I always pour off the excess fat after browning the meat - usually into an old tin that would otherwise be recycled, and sling it in the bin. Don't pour it down the plug-hole... It'll stick in yer pipes and pong.

I like the cheaper mince sometimes - it has a bit more 'chew' to it! :)

Was going to say the same thing,tek-monkey :thumbsup:

Cheap Beef = Good Times

I tend to use the lean stuff too, but if you are not so fussed then this is a tough price to beat.
#23
Very good price, wish I had an Asda near me and would stock up on this!

+1 i only buy the 12% fat max content stuff
#26
Perfect for burger making with some chopped onions, egg and a bit of seasoning and spice :D

Ooh, wonder if this weekend is BBQ weather.

why is it we're probably the ony country in europe where one can't buy horse in the supermarket? Is very nice to eat and there is never any fat or gristly bits.
#29
29 comments eh. I have quite enjoyed reading them all.
It's a bit like a day-time soap opera.
Now, err, what was the post about ?

Too true, a couple of years ago had horse steak in Tenerife. Very tasty and hardly anyone knew.
One expat told me they mark it beef steak if its beef and just steak if its horse, that way they are not breaking the law as steak is a type of cut not a particular animal.

thats an offer ;)
#32
LOL and respect for OP's opening comment
#33
You can all come to my house for dinner!

If you are worried about fat I saw this tip - I think it was jamie oliver ......

Use 2 pan when cooking, once cooked tip to the other pan, wipe the original pan with kitchen roll till clean then switch back, keep doing to very little fat is left. Bit of a pain in the bum but its a small effort to eat leaner
#34
19% fat vs 11% fat?

You get 8% more meat from the 11% stuff, but at almost triple the price.

Just drain the fat and Robert is your mother's brother.

HOT!
#35
It depends what I'm making TBH, sometimes I use the lean stuff but other times I like a bit of fat in it. Some of the extra lean mince tastes kind of dry to me, but maybe I've just got cheap tastebuds!
#36
Roberts my dads brother actually :P

I generally just drain as much of the fat off as I can without dropping the mince in the bin/on the work surface!

I like to give vegetarians a choice when they come to eat at my house, eat this perfectly nice meat dish or f**k off. :thumbsup:

This is perfect for burgers - the extra fat content is great for binding the burger without resorting to using egg.

I'm feeling hungry now :)

Why? I thought that was self evident!

If you can't tell the difference, then really the question is, why bother eating meat at all... just eat anything that fills the belly. That would really cut the grocery bill! :whistling:

Horse tastes about as different to beef as lamb does to chicken!
If you are deliberately trying to confuse people I dare-say you could hide it, with various ingredients, but as a steak on it's own, no, not to people who can taste what they eat. Most people here would think there is something "wrong" with it, they might well not know what was wrong, but would know something was odd. Obviously some will like it more!

Raw, it isn't too hard to miss either, tends to be much leaner, and "too" red" for most people to be attracted to it. There is certainly less fat, but just as many gristly bits as any other meat, it would fall down in a heap on the floor if it didn't have the gristly bits to connect the flesh to the bones, it is purely how meat is butchered that determines how much fat or gristle it has left showing! The lack of fat among the muscle doesn't do it any favours in my view, and makes it less beef-like because of the different balance of fat to flesh as well as the sweet (glycogen) taste, which is the sweetness liver has which is what many people don't like about liver!

I remember when training in meat inspection, getting to see enough of it was the problem, but at the final exam it was one horse after another :-(

As a "cheap" substitute for beef, it's an odd one to choose, seeing it's generally DEARER than beef even in those countries that eat it! The seedy trade in pet horses from this country for export abroad is the only "cheap" source of horse-meat around in Europe, and probably holds prices down I suspect, but it is certainly not cheap any other way.
The Canary Islands, being not properly inside the EC for some purposes perhaps accounts for it there then, it maybe from a non-EC source that makes it more affordable, maybe South America? Just a guess.

The reason it is expensive, Cattle are ready for slaughter in well under 30 months, while horses cost a fortune to feed especially as they need much higher grade food to thrive, and they take a long time past cattle to get to a commercial weight - while OLD horses past it for any other purposes are not going to be edible as anything so succulent as steaks, that's for sure, and are more destined for pet food!
