Might be a good price for a good cut as you say but I've become a little disillusioned of late with Aldi, prices seem to be going up, but worse, quality seems to be down.

Seems the same for all retailers these days

Get chatting with your local butcher, I would never buy meat from a supermarket, too expensive and poor quality.No I am not connected with the food industry.

This is too expensive per KG. Also i thought Morrisons serloin steak was quite expensive at £9 per KG. Last year Morrisons did rump steak at half price £5.99 KG.Food inflation must be running riot.

21 day matured in a sealed packet.... not hung like at the butchers... I agree with happy chappy the butchers is far far far better quality and near as dammit the same price as the super market....

Morrisons did the same deal last valentines day for the sirloin. relax.

Got 4 decent sized rib eyes for 20quid at Costco the other day. Agree, if you want a nice piece of meat avoid the supermarket, been let down too many times.

I like them well done. But they're always too hard to eat. Any tips?

Put foil over it and let it rest for 3-5 minutes once it's done. And cook it on red hot pan, preferably cast iron

The guy in this video knows his stuff, and explains it all pretty well: youtube.com/wat…Cs4
I don't use his oven method though, but stick to these times instead: howtocookasteak.com/for…=24

The Asda Extra Special 28 matured ones are a little on the expensive side but it's the best damn ribeye steak I've ever had!

I cooked myself an Aldi steak once, I didn't cook it enough as I like my steak rare but I'm talking so rare it was still cold in the middle.

Anyway, I couldn't be arsed to take it off the plate and cook it some more so I ate it.

Hours laters, a girl came around and we had energetic sex. I then started feeling a bit dizzy, so I went downstairs to get a glass of water, and puked up all the steak into the sink.

I'm not sure what was worse, the sensation of cold poor quality steak coming back up your gullet, or having to pick the huge chunks out of the sink with your hands because they won't fit down the plughole.

Needless to say, she never came around again.

Not everyone has a local butcher, and for those that do there's no guarantee that their product is any better than the supermarket.

I've never been disappointed by Costco's meat counter, although their aberdeen angus burgers seem a lot fattier than they used to.

If she made you feel that ill, then that was probably a good thing

best tip for cooking a steak is to not have the damn thing well done. Waste of meat how some people can eat something that resembles ghandis flip flop i dont know. Anyway back to the post. It works out about 12quid per kilo not really a good deal in my opinion

Get pan red hot, i have it on 5 (max is 6) little bit of oil but needs to have a high burning temp, something like rapeseed then coock the steak for 15 secs per side until at the required doneness is achieved. for me i cook medium - medium rare at home this take between 3:30 - 4:00 for an inch sized or there abouts so prob 5 - 6 mins would be well done. Then rest on a warm not hot plate for about half the cooking time This way seals in all the juices and keepd the flavour in and the restring will allow the meat to relax and release the juice back into the meat

Dan will be not be happy! He chose to provide that Lady for the evening whist you threatened him with yet another non-leathal pasty discharge at the local BP.

Following the subsiquent 'tit for tat' phone-in feature on Norfolk Digital, you became increasingly involved, with Aldi's products, including their chocolate. !! oO

On the local butcher issue used to live near congleton and there was a butcher there who was quite expensive, a lot dearer than SM so this was really a special occasion type thing so i would imagine thet by now this is really expensive and compared to SM for people on a budget this would not be so good.

But for the last 5+ years or so have been going to Bury market and the butcher (the ones who wear blue for anyone that knows it) there are really good. Good quality meat and not really that expensive, i spend roughly 60 - 90 every 6-8 weeks and dont buy any other meat during this time

Is it Kosher? :P

I've seen these used and they will turn any tough piece of meat into something that can be eaten. I'm waiting to find a deal on one before I purchase though.

WTF - Sirloin expensive at £9/Kg - what planet/timeline are you living in?

A decent butcher will charge around £25/Kg for this cut - the fact is these days that a large number of butchers these days are buying in more expensive cuts vacuum packed - so it's not hung like it used to be unfortunately.

When they are declared as 21 day matured - they are usually hung for the 21 day period before packing it.

Butchers don't tend to hang sides of beef for long periods - they buy it in ready-hung, then some choose to let it hang for a week or two longer.

A lot of butchers just cba these days, and buy it in vacuum packed.

Taste the Difference Tesco stuff is fairly decent as far as supermarket stuff goes.

Or a good butcher. (Best ones know which field the cow was in during its life).
