What does "unfatted" actually mean, in this context?

Exactly what i wondered! Since beef needs some fat to make it tasty

No fat on the outside that you can see --- although likely to be riddled with fat they've rolled and hidden on the inside :)

I've come to the conclusion that virtually all beef from UK supermarkets is not worth buying these days.

The fat has been removed...Why?,Fat is what flavours the meat,and when its cooked you don't have to eat it.
Sometimes you will see beef which says "with added fat"..this is a piece of fat that has just been tied loose to the joint,but will have come from another cow.

Working for the Co-op i can tell you that the Beef Joints are a pricing error they're looking to correct once the stock sells through as they should be labelled at 4.99per kg.

I'm not to sure about the unfatted part though as i'm pretty sure the fat had been rolled inside.

The Salmon although it says "Co-operative" is sourced from John west.

Co op beef joints are gorgeous I always buy some when they have it on offer or u could try tesco their rib eye beef is half price at the moment

I'll be giving this a miss then, all that lovely fat is what makes the gravy taste so nice, too.

People stop trying to outdo each other with your "knowledge" of beef and just accept a good offer when you see one,the coop bulk beef is sourced from uk herds and is as good as anywhere else.

Fat is not rolled inside topside or silverside joints as generally they are cut from bulk pieces and there is no need to roll them in the traditional sense like say a piece of brisket or lamb or pork shoulder.

This is a decent price although tesco,sainsbury and asda will probably offer similar.

Be happy folks its christmas.
#10
But is it a good offer? what actual cut is it? what does unfatted mean? Only raising this as Watchdog caught Tesco wrongly labelling joints of meat a couple of weeks ago, which they accepted. Also, topside/silver side is £4.25 to about £5.25 at Wing Yips all year round, so not really half price is it.
#11
Here's a comment i found because i couldn't remember the details. "Beware! On last week's Watchdog Tesco were caught selling front flank [?] as topside. Nothing wrong with flank, of course, except it takes longer to cook than the more tender topside. Tesco's answer is to sell both as 'beef roasting joints' without saying what it actually is".

Seems the CO-OP, has now joined the lets confuse our customers club.
#12
Just had a look at them instore, some say topside beef joints and others say silverside, so two different types.
#13
Thanks for going to all that trouble. I'll vote cold then.

The coop has ran with this offer for around the past ten years at christmas.
You appear to be saying that because tesco were caught trying to take a liberty you are assuming that the coop are doing the same?

The only way they could identify what cut it actually was on watchdog was when a butcher physically looked at it. I was just pointing out Tesco called this beef, unfatted beef which seems to be a new term. On the Tesco label it said it was topside when it was identfied as shank, a cheaper cut. It is obviously very unlikly the COOP have come up whith the same unusual labelling term independantly from Tesco, so there is a coincidental link. All i'm saying is be on your guard, as the reason most retailers come up with new ambiguous terms is to get round laws or standards. Unfatted beef is hardly descriptive, and you would have to ask the COOP why they are using it.
I don't trust any retailer, especially as they all are announcing record profits every other month, or claiming their beef is half price when it obviously isn't. As i said, i get my meat from Wing Yips where i paid in september £3.39 for shank and £5.00 for topside (normal price) clearly labelled with no attemt to mislead me which i'm personally more comfortable with.

Just looking on Hotukdeals beef has been, or is still £3.99 at lidl, £4.00 at Asda and Tesco and £4.49 at Sainsbury's in the last week or 2.

Question is my friend would you know the difference between top/silverside or salmon cut anyway?
you say you dont trust any retailer so why would you trust the label on the pack just because it says s/side or topside.
We are only talking about a piece of beef:p

well it tasted lovely. So did the legs of lamb they had at half price.
