The work 'steak' covers a lot of cuts........what is the fat content of this.

It will be most certainly from the forequarters....crop,chuck,thick rib etc........Not the hindquarters where the rump,sirloin,top rump,topside is.

I usually wait till roasting beef is around £5 a KG then get a load and mince my own.

I'm hopefully getting a mincer, is it easy enough making your own and will any cut mince well as I can get flank steak quite cheap?

Do you have any tips?

Many thanks
Online now HERE.
Got quite a bit of this when it was last on offer, I will def be buying some more.

Hardly any fat and quite tasty, don't buy if it is going to be for burgers they will be dry, get something with a bit higher fat content to keep the meat moist.

Available for deliveries on or before Tuesday 20th November 2012.

The one we have was from Lidl a few years ago,it was only £35.Yes it will mince all meat,including fat,just be careful of any sinew as it can get caught in the cutter and clog it up.I usually trim it and cut into small pieces before mincing.I have minced a boneless shoulder of lamb and made the meat into minted lamburgers,I get my burger seasoning from this company.I have made sausage meat as well but as I don't have a sausage machine just press the meat into sausage patties.

Here is the link (not sausage) X)

will grab 4 more of these, if you chop some chorizo and put it inside 2 thin patties it makes a perfect burger as the oils keep the mince moist on the inside and it has that tang of paprika

but 20% fat content is the 'ideal' for burgers
great price for decent mince
I bought 'the less than 12% of fat' Tesco British mince last week - seemed fresh, looked nice, not too greasy, smelled good, however the longer I fried it, the more unpleasant odour was coming out of it.Ended up binning everything.

Don't get me wrong, I am a normal bloke who isn't embarrassed shopping at Lidl or Aldi but I find the supermarkets' meat (in general) rarely edible ,and the pork from there is even worse.

Meat at Morrisons is usually a bit better but it still doesn't guarantee good quality.It's not about its freshness, it probably depends on what food the animals have been fed with.

this was really nice , i was unsure about getting some as i normally buy extra lean steak mince only , but this was lovely hardly any fat at all , lovely flavour and cheap made two huge lasagne with it as tesco had the large family size dolmio on offer at half price too 1.50 a jar think its still on was mon x
alternatively, go to any local halal butcher,select your fat free meat and watch them grind it up for you freshly. More expensive, but you get what you pay for.

Any local butcher shop will do it, it doesn't have to be the halal one.
We got 8 packs of this last time, fried it all up with onions and seasoning and bagged it up into portions to freeze. Makes weekday dinners much easier, can do a good spag bol in no time at all. I also did the same for pasta bakes, just found anything meat in my freezer that could do with being used and cooked the lot up

Ah, that's a common problem when over cooking food. It's called burning.

The last time they did this, both the regular and lean mince were half price (in my local at least), so will probably be the same again.

Considering the kind of meals most people use mince for anyway...who cares?
And we also don't care that you like to wait until roasting beef is still almost twice the cost of this then mince it yourself.

well, I am an experienced cook, I would notice if that was a problem
mince was always a cheap product years ago we used to run lites (sheeps lungs) through with it to make it red and all the fat to get rid of it and anything else hanging around including all the discoloured meat .Has anything changed?.

Pretty sure its still the same, but not sure why people would be that bothered.

as it is 100% beef then i would guess the answer is 'yes' things have changed

unless you were manufacturing quorn mince

No need for you to tell us your preference for expensive meat either, but you sure as hell did it. Next time keep your pointless statements to yourself.

Maybe not, be we do call it expensive mince :3.
My local Tesco beef is always poor quality, not that I would purchase mince anywhere, unless I saw what was being minced.

Must be an awful life, never being able to eat sausages or burgers.
This sounds a good offer. It seems that there are more than wine snobs out there!!! Just a quick tip, don't overlook your mince when you brown it. If you do, the fat changes, I believe, into an acid, this WILL give you indigestion/heartburn and will smell/taste 'strong'. Just quick brown the mince and add your water, stock, tinned tomatoes, it'll be lush.
I bought some of their steak mince half price from the counter last week and it was disgusting and when i got home and went to use it underneath was brown,not supposed to be like that is it funny how the top in the counter was nice and red.
11.8% fat is well OTT and it'll be swimming in fat come frying time.

If you have a carp product you won't make it tasting good, regardless the effort you are going to put into while preparing it.

Your advise is fine as long as you have decent quality mince - the one I brought from my Tesco wasn't.

11.8% fat is pretty low compared to other mince available.

At £3.43/KG it's incredibly low.

I'll be stocking up.
Agree - i will stock up and a few kilos. Very fine mince
cheers cracker,im gonna stock up on the stocks from last time!!!mince every day till xmas me thinks oO

< 12%



People keep saying <12% but tesco mince is less than 20 unless it's their 'lean' mince, which costs more. So the above might be wrong.
