they didnt say the steak was good, they said it was sirloin steak for £8.50 a kilo. cracking deal. now go to your local butcher and see what they charge you for your so called better sirloin. at the end of the day, a cow is a cow. dont get me wrong its better from a local butcher yeah , however if he poster sirloin steak at my local for £20 a kilo, how cold would the deal get. do you get the point ?

I find best place to get meat is Morrisons. I love the fillet steaks there.. omm nom nom nom

Tesco ain't bad I suppose, I sometimes get 3 for £10 when they're including sirloin steaks - and cook it up then serve in a baked baguette with salad.

Euh... nobody claimed anything about Tesco butcher being a decent butcher or the steak quality being good. Only two bozos immediately seems to join in the thread fixated on "local decent butcher" and in your case, somehow you seem to claim without giving any justification that Tesco butchers are not decent?

So do please share with us what concrete evidence you have that Tesco butchers should be avoided and that the quality of the meat at any local butcher is so much superior to the quality of the meat at any Tesco. As a matter of fact, does any one have the statistics from the FSA that proves that buying meat from a local butcher is so much safer than from any Tesco due to Tesco very poor record on hygiene, etc...

People don't avoid the supermarkets for hygene reasons, it's the meat itself. Supermarkets pull some brilliant tricks and you can never be really sure what it is that you're buying. As an example, there's one supermarket that ships beef from around the country up to Scotland and holds it there for 30 days before slaughter so that they can sell it as Scottish Beef. A local butcher would never be able to do this, they don't have the infrastructure to pull such a trick off. They are generally dependent on local farms.

For me though, going to the butcher is more about the level of service and actually getting what you ask for. Maturation period on beef is quite a big deal and I know that my local butcher will hang meat for as long as I ask him to (the minimum he does is 14 days anyway vs 7 for this steak from Tesco).

The sirloin I bought (just to warn everyone) came in a big vacuum packet. It was about £22.70.

When I cut it up into steaks before freezing i got 10 great sized steaks.

This was £8.50 per kilo so it may well be the same deal as op's but the fella said it finishes today, from tomorrow it will be back up to full price.

This was Tesco in S Helens.

They also had full lamb shoulders for £3.50 per kilo. Which was around £2.50 per kilo cheaper than Tesco's half shoulders in the normal blue packaging.

These were located at the end of the isle, where all of the 3 for £10 meats are.

At our Tesco (Corstorphine), this offer is available in the prepacked section, in which case you get a huge vacuum pack as described by roosterpots.

However, it is also available at the butcher's section where I got hem to cut a piece of around 750g which made a very nice roast.

satchef1, I don't disagree with you. A good butcher that you know and trust is going to give you service and quality. My post is more at the pointless haters that just hate Tesco because its a big successful company. The fact the meat is produced in a local farm and butchered by a local butchered is absolutely not a proof of quality in itself. There are 12 year old milk cows locally and there are bad local butchers too.

Unfortunately, many peoples have lost the skill of identifying quality food. Instead, they just go on baseless prejudices. "Ah, it's Scottish Beef (marked as), it must be good!" or "It's in Tesco, it must be bad!", "It's a local butcher, it must be good!", "It's expensive, it must be good!" etc.

I have to agree, people associate a brand/produce/service with whether it is good or bad - butchery is one of those areas that people watch too much Hugh Fearnley Whittingstall rubbish that they believe buying meat from a certain place is bad.

Buy where you believe it is best for you, most of us look for reasonable priced goods not for over priced products that are the same. Just because it comes from a butcher in the high street doesn't make the product any better or worse than something you buy from a supermarket.

However having said that I have to say that the only supermarket here that I have been too that has a fully trained butcher that can bone something without leaving half the meat still on the bone is Morrisons.

The same is true of fish and the fishmongers in a supermarket, that doesn't mean I wouldn't buy fish from the supermarket.

We crave convenience as people and there is nothing wrong with that, I just wish supermarkets treated us with more respect and credit that we would buy things out of packets and not everything had to be wrapped with a pretty label on it or be Class I.

Some decent comments from yant and yellowplum here, the rest of the almost baseless criticism is laughable and fictitious nonsense.

If you want sirloin at £8.50 a kilo, get this, if you prefer to spend more than double at your local butcher for better quality - buy that, but don't go making up crap about big bad Tesco to illustrate your point. Yawn.
#21
I know the butcher at my local Tesco, and often get him to make sure I get the good bits! Thing is, anyone can. Just ask them, they only sell you the stuff you want. If it looks bad quality, ask them what else they have out back.
#22
I missed it :(, too bad. I personally prefer Morrissons for Steaks but would buy these at this great price. Top deal. For all the steak snobs try Donald Russell-online, it is superb but very pricey.
