We’ve had one already and it was a lovely piece of meat.
British or Irish, we had the Irish & bought two more!
I got two last year and was very disappointed. Lots of gristle running through the meat, constantly cutting it out. Wouldn't buy again.
Does anyone know what cut it is? E.g. topside, silverside, top rump?
Poor quality full of gristle

Topside & silverside.
If you prefer Morrisons - like I do, or you don't have an Asda nearby - there's is £5 per kilo now.
We get steaks and beef joints etc all the time from Asda and have never had any real issues with gristle. Then again my wife actually looks at the joint and checks for gristle etc before she buys rather than just picking it up and putting it in the trolley as we have seen some do

And pay 3 times the price.
Have you ever been in Asda etc when they have beef and lamb on offer and seen your local butchers filling their trolleys to sell in their shops as they can't get it from their suppliers at the price the supermarkets sell it for. I have and it has been quite a topic of discussion on these pages in the past.

Topside & silverside.


does it actually say topside or silverside on the packaging?

The beef we picked up the other day just had Irish beef roasting joint on the packaging
Locally, they had top rump and silverside. Said what it was by price label. Had one already and was good quality
I put one in my trolley last Friday whilst in Asda. It said Silverside and was £10.30 which will do us twice. I cut it in half and it is now in the freezer. On this occasion there was no gristle running through it at all, but I have had good and bad pieces. I still think, on the whole, it is better quality than the £5 per kilo offering at Morrisons. I checked in Morrisons on Tuesday and it could only be described as disgraceful, definitely more fat & gristle than actual meat. So much better quality at the actual butchers counter, but of course, more money, so is it a question of 'you get what you pay for'?

Mostly top rump
in the slow cooker with wine/onions/carrots/garlic and top up with stock of tin tomatoes. Luvvy - Sliverside and topside never roast well . If you must roast, place in a deep tray of wine/onions/carrots/garlic . and keep double wrapped in foil for half the cook time. (Throw away the bit of basting fat)

Silver side cut
Not a suitable cut for roasting as a butcher it's not silverside or topside it may be labelled as a beef joint but it's what we Scottish butchers call Glasga fillet (poor mans fillet steak) due to it's similar appearance but with that grissley vain running through it it's best for slow cooking.
Top rump is a great cut.
Glasga fillet Is taken from the fore quarter.
Looks similar but
A different muscle.
Only fit for braising
Today we put half of one of these in the slow cooker with a tin of herby tomatoes a chopped onion 4 x chopped carrots approx half a litre of beef stock and approx 250ml of red wine. Cooked on high for approx 1hr then on low for 4 hrs. It was bloomin gawjus... just fell apart and was so moist and tasty. Thickened the sauce up with a little cornflour and then used it as a gravy with mashed potatoes and peas. Will be having the same again or similar tomorrow, still have enough meat for sandwiches. Really tasty, it's worth a try cooking in this way.

We have roasted this cut before and found it really nice, not too tough and very tasty, as I have said above also, tried it slow cooked again really nice. So whether you are a butcher or not this is a nice joint for both roasting or slow cooking as others have also said.

The problem is the poor supplier gets screwed down on price by the supermarkets.
So they buy in huge amounts.
Quality is not a necessity
