Why do they (Supermarkets) insist on using the word 'fresh' to describe foodstuffs? Why not be honest and say frozen only once?

I really don't have an answer maybe others in the "Trade" do?

It's highly unlikely this beef has been frozen as that changes the texture plus Lidl would be bound to communicate that fact.

I'm not convinced. Agreed, it's not quite the same, but look at the label on the "fresh" mince, the next time you visit asda/tesco. Something along the lines of "previously frozen, suitable for home freezing".

What about 'fresh' fish one can buy from a fishmongers. You think that hasn't been frozen on the boat that it was caught on? Those boats are out at sea for several days before the catch returns to be sold at market. Fish goes off very quickly unless it's frozen. Same applies with all 'fresh' perishable foodstuffs. Unless it's been injected with those nasty preservatives...

Semantics aside, I've voted hot. Cheap meat is good, regardless of how it reaches us.

Fish is a different kettle of, erm... fish though.

Beef, and indeed, lamb, tastes better when "hung" for 28 days. What the supermarkets are doing is freezing on day of slaughter, then defrosting to sell as fresh at a time which suits them. Not quite the same thing.

They don't freeze beef joints/cuts, they chill it to a degree or so north of 0C. Freezing alters the texture of beef,

Plus for food safety reasons (ie food is recommended not to be frozen, thawed, then refrozen) they would be bound to tell you about the freezing as per the mince example above.

You can be almost 100% sure that unless the label says otherwise, the Lidl rump steaks will not have been frozen.

Yeah, I can confirm that none of the fresh meat at lidl has been previously frozen. Also confirm this offer isn't available in the North East. We got chicken kievs at 64p instead.

Eh? How come you lot up norf get all the good deals?
Down here it's just some diced chicken breast.:(

Still hot though, if you can get it!

Like Lidl, but not their beef...Sainsburys & Morrisons are better.... but that's just my taste!!

I may get some at this price and make some beef jerky. I haven't made it before but there are lots of vids on YouTube.
