Sounds great but have a good look at it, nearly got some today and opted for the 800g for £2 value option as it looked much nicer! Obv store specific, you might get a better batch than was in my store!

Hot.....in theory :)

Morrisons mince ain't much good- I've always found it fatty and has bits of gristle and bone it

Do you mean the Family Butcher mince? It looks different to the mechanically recovered stuff that is cheaper, because it is made with matured (hung) beef which is darker.
Shame yours was gristly if it was the same stuff. I would have taken the tray back and complained.

This is mince that is minced in store from off cuts,which can include rump,topside etc,etc.The mince in pre packed boxes is done on a special machine,that's why its in strands.

Me personally waits till they have silverside/topside on offer and then mince my own,that way you know exactly what you are getting

Anyone happen to know the fat content of this?

I tend to use Sainsburys Basics as the fat content isn't actually that high, especially compared to the other supermarket budget brand stuff. I know people will go on about the quality etc but in bolognaise or burgers I don#t really notice much difference; we drain the fat off for bolognaise and you need fatty mince to make decent burgers anyway.

This all said, if the Morrisons mince is any good I may look to get that.

Cold cold cold , morrisons sell the most disgusting meat i have ever seen or tasted. No point shouting its fresh when it comes from a grade C and below animal.

Very mixed reviews here on the mince. Personally we like this mince and it's a great deal. Perhaps it does vary from store to store. But thanks for posting it.

Kindly explain what on earth you are talking about?
What is "grade C?"

The only "grade C" I am aware of in he Meat industry is in the American grading system, and that's a voluntary system anyway, it applies to cattle 42 to 72 months old. That has NOTHING whatsoever to do with freshness in the first place!

While they might not be the best meat retailer on the planet, I have certainly seen FAR worse meat than Morrisons sell, and that would include more than one of the main British supermarkets, in fact they are rather unusual among British supermarkets when it comes to meat, having their own farms and slaughterhouse; and is as far as I am aware almost all British meat. The pack will be labelled in any case.

You have absolutely no idea what your on about. One or two stores may be the exception to the rule but out of the big stores. Morrisons gets considerably better reviews from people when it comes to meat quality.

Also for your information, when it comes to meat FRESHNESS has nothing to do with it. Infact meat like beef is not very nice at all freshly cut.

Ok i will reply , i used to work in an abbattoir that supplied Morrisons ,Asda Tesco M&S Netto and local butchers with their meat we were part of Malton Bacon, Danish Crown and Unigate , the grading system we used and more than likely still use was A, A1, B, B1, C and D Morrisons and Carver took grade C. Whatever system you use or are aware of is fine but throught out our various companies this was the grading we used.

We have 4 local morrisons in our area. Funny how their reduced section is always full, must be the "TOP" quality meat they sell.

Ah well maybe a case of a little knowledge being a dangerous thing!
I can only presume it must be some in-house system used by that company.

The grading system generally used in this country is controlled by the MLC (Meat & Livestock Commission), I wouldn't pretend to be involved with it, my business was as a Meat Inspector, but I have worked in a few Slaughterhouses where full time MLC inspectors have carried out the grading. Here it is explained: http://www.jaspersbeef.co.uk/slaughter_hall.htm
As you can see, it too has no relation to "Freshness" either. As you should be aware, ALL meat from a Slaughterhouse is TOO fresh, and requires hanging for various times before cutting.
God protect us from too fresh beef! :-(

Similarly, different grades have their different end user... top rate retail butchery is going to aim for top grades, manufacturing of pies or economy beefburgers is going to be a lot further down the scale, just like anything else: cars, or houses, potatoes or meat. So, top rate tender cuts = expensive; cheaper tougher cuts needing longer cooking =cheaper. I wouldn't expect fillet steak to be in the mince, in the same way I would be shocked if something labelled as frying steak was just a piece of tough brisket!

What the reduced section has to do with it all is another issue. My nearest Morrisons rarely has ANYTHING much in the reduced section let alone meat, it is more down to price and stock levels, (and how well the ordering has been done!) and what gets put there is what is getting close to Best Before date... so again it is still perfectly fresh too, I am happy to buy stuff reduced if it is what I want.

Mince is made from cheap cuts from less premium livestock, no shock there, it always has been, and always will - if anyone wants a better product, then buy braising or stewing steak from a high end retail butcher and mince it yourself, of course it will be generally much more expensive.

Morrisons? Well, as a company it is different from most other supermarkets, and in some ways I find it a complete BIND to shop in; not my favourite supermarket (and it is mutual, I am not a favourite of the Morrison's Management either, we have had our run-ins!) - but as for meat quality it is generally fine, and certainly as good, if not better than the competition.
