TESCO FINEST BEEF RIB JOINTS £9.00 PER KG HALF PRICE

dizzadizza

My first post and not computer savvy, so apologies in advance.
InTesco Saffron Walden today they had finest beef rib joints at the meat counter (not pre-packed). for £9 per kilo. That is half price. I picked up a lovely joint for Sunday when all the family will be with me.
Not sure if it available on line, or at other stores, but a good price for a beef joint for Easter.

    Love beef rib joints, these were £8/kg at christmas though, one of the more expensive joints just seems to be getting dearer!
    Good price though being as its "half" price, heat added.

    Should have said this is the "finest" range. Although I have just checked on line and the normal bone in beef joints from the meat counter are £8 per kg.

    Whatever the price it's a cold deal simply because there's no way of knowing what meat it really is.

    I also no longer buy meat from supermarkets. I want to know and see what I'm buying for I buy it. I'm no longer prepared to be lied to on the package and then when I open it, find fat and sinue hidden under the good bits and ten percent of the weight taken up by added water.

    Supermarkets lie to their customers and laugh at them for being suckers whilst counting their millions in profits.

    You are kidding right, the last time I went to my local butchers the prices were quite frankly ridiculous. I think we got 3 chicken breasts for almost £9, seemed to be quite a rip off to me. I am pretty certain supermarkets are cheaper but there's a reason for that, if you can afford local butchers then fair enough but a lot of people can't

    I'm not sure which scares me more, butchers or raw meat. I'm kinda one of those 'just show me it cooked' people and proud of it. ;)

    The very reason they're 3 times the size is because they're pumped with water.

    As for the other misinformed poster who can't tell when beef rib is beef rib . Heh.

    No, because they don't get any funnier after you've heard them all a few times.

    have to agree about local butcher. much better meat. not too expensive and NOT full of water. my butcher has queues out of the door every day so must mean something.

    If you can't tell beef rib is beef rib, then you don't need to worry about what you're eating!

    It's a total misnomer that butcher's sell "better meat" than supermarkets. They may know more about how to cut a carcass, but the origin of the meat doesn't change. No supermarket has sold meat that isn't what it is billed as. What they have sold is processed products that have other things in the mix.

    Strikes me as a sad indictment of your powers of reasoning if you are unable to distinguish the difference.

    In fairness, a good butcher will provide far superior meat than a Supermarket. They hang the meat for longer and have better selection process for livestock. A good butcher will source his meat from a specific herd.

    That said, you will pay a premium for it - butchers in my area are £40Kg for fillet steak, which is insane.

    They can however, and this is important to all those who have a firn belief that Supermarkets inject meat with water, they can legally do this in a butchers and don't have to inform the consumer, as they aren't packaging it. So this fallacy that you avoid this practice by buying chicken breasts etc from a butcher is incorrect.

    BTW Beef Rib in Tesco Silverburn is £16Kg.

    The reason a lot of supermarket chicken breasts are smaller is because they remove the 'mini fillet' from the underside of them, and sell them separately as that... mini fillets. They have huge tendons going right through the middle and tend to have a more fleshy texture to them. Alright for chucking in curries but I wouldn't use them for much else.

    I wish people would stop claiming the added water. This is only the case in the frozen breasts. Just stir fry the regular ones and you'll see no water comes out... it literally pours out of the frozen ones to the point you need to sieve it out and re-add oil!
