Good for Christmas, can be frozen

    Doesn't appear to be on it anyway, yet they are advertising it on the TV!

    Mind you, there are a lot of people who wouldn't know what a POUND of meat is, and even I think in Kg now too, despite still being able to convert back to pre-decimal Pounds Shillings & Pence! :whistling:

    Hi, think a kilo is about 2.2 pounds (or around that ) so a pound is about 0.5kg

    Darn, you beat me to it.
    I am a fishmonger at Morrisons and saw this deal yesterday. Meant to post it last night.
    Just to clarify, this offer is HALF PRICE on Silverside, Topside, Topside Rump and Salmon Cut beef joints. These are all primarily the same, but butchers insist there is a difference. Most decent sized joints are now priced about £4.
    The offer is on until Sunday, and there is PLENTY stock. We wrapped up over 200 joints today. Tomorrow will be even busier.
    Also, they are limited to 2 per customer. And they ARE freezable, so its worth getting a couple for over the christmas period in my opinion.

    And yeah, a pound is about 0.46kg

    While 4.24/Kg is a good price, £8.48 would be a gross over-pricing, and smacks of the usual meaningless "recommended" or "was" method of pricing most stores get up to! :-(

    All the other supermarkets regularly sell Topside & Silverside at about £4.50 to £5 /kg on offers, and not a lot more, say about £7 at their regular pricing.

    Its not hard to comprehend is it?? £8.48 is the normal price (even at Tesco), and when its half price is £4.24. Whether its overpriced at 8.48 is a different matter, personally I buy whatever meat is on offer :thumbsup: (And as an added bonus you can buy twice as much for the same price - bargain!!)

    What's your beef? :p
    miss money saver
    off to morrisons then. hot :thumbsup:

    have to say I really don't like Morrisons. Checkouts are very slow and under staffed.

    I now buy all my meat at a local butchers - I may get flamed for this but the quality is sooo much better. I never believed this until I started using a proper butcher.

    Hi, bought some beef yesterday from Morrisons, have to say the quality is really good and I personally think at this price you cannot go wrong. Got a really big piece, had some yesterday and have frozen the rest for Xmas.
    Heat added.

    Apart from a cow where does this beef come from?(not a joke question -just wondering)
    I too am thinking of going to local butchers - where ever that may be?? but is it really local meat they sell ?

    Any tips on how to cook small pieces of this beef in a microwave/combo grill, or is this a no-no?

    I personally find morrisons to be the best supermarket for meat, far better than asda's which is rank.
    And i bet you can't find these price's at your local butcher's.
    Just wish halifax's new store would hurry up and open as i'm missing out on some right bargains.

    They all do this.. put the price up, to drop it later! Somerfield in particular (before the Coop buyout) constantly cycle the "full" price, then half it.

    It is Silverside or Topside, that's the cut, it comes effectively from different sides of the top of the hind leg:

    I personally don't rate either that good for roasting, and would always go for fore-rib, or perhaps Sirloin if I was feeling particularly wealthy! The lower fat content and texture of Silverside/Topside makes it tend to be tougher and less juicy, and would be more prone to pot-roast it, but a lot do use it for roasting as they aim for fat-free meat - I would go for a higher fat content, and then remove the fat after cooking instead!

    Local butchers can be good, or bad, like any other retailer, it may be local, it may not be, depends where they buy from! There is no guarantee, but looking and asking might help

    a TOTAL no-no! :-(

    I have a Combo microwave/grill/oven myself, and it is fantastic for may things, but don't touch meat with microwave power, just use the convection oven setting, or if you only have the type with grill, it needs to go in the oven, proper.

    Back when I first got a microwave in 1980, (Price was silly!) I went through the trials of cooking EVERYTHING in microwaves, as people did back then, and it RUINS meat, among other things! :x

    got one of these yesterday, enough for a family of 4 only £2.60 bargain i say! usually about a fiver when ive bought one that size before.

    Thanks for the tip off OP. Just got mum and I a lovely joint to put in freezer for end of year.

    What a rush on in there, though. Seemed at the checkout that everyone had a couple of joints of beef in their trolley and the staff were being great and letting people swap their joints if they hadn't seen the offer. Now thats good CS.

    All meat sold from our meat counters are sourced from Britain. Up here in Scotland, we make sure all the beef is Scottish too :)

    Went to my local Morrisons. The shelf was bare. After I got my other bits n bobs I noticed an assembled throng around the shelf. It's just been restocked, so got a nice pair of joints (2 per customer limit). That's Sunday dinner sorted, and one for X-Mas time.
