Why is topside great?
Want to wow your family and friends with an impressive roast? Our topside is just the thing.

Where do we get our beef from?
We source our meat direct from British farmers we know and trust, so we know exactly where it comes from.

What to wash it down with?
Enjoy with a glass of Morrisons Rich & Juicy Côtes du Rhône, this fruity wine was made for roast beef.

Chef's Tip:
This prime, lean cut needs to best rested for around half an hour after it's been cooked. Serve it with seasonal veg.

I wished I had gone here this weekend. I went to Asda and they had none of the usual topside, just a few joints of silverside and from a cheaper supplier. Anyway I cooked it slow and it was like rubber, I couldn't even eat it. Waste of £13.
If only the meat in the fridge was as good as the advertisement photo shows, I would indulge. Sadly, I have seens lots of rubbish in Morrisons when these kind of offers are on which is a shame, because I really like Morrisons.

It's very tricky to cook, end up with dry and rubbery meat but it might be that it's overcooked. Not sure but the demand for meat seems to have gone up a tad and prices have too.

That's because the beefs are Vegan

What is sold in the stores is NOTHING like the picture, so much fat and tough meat.

If you have a meat thermometer, cook to an internal temp, depending on your liking, for all meats not just beef, indoors or outdoors. Much more accurate than timings in my experience
This will do for my annual chinese beef prep and store in the freezer ...... youtube.com/wat…7EQ
anyone living in London should try meat from polish shops ie. Mleczko (15 shops) or Bracia (Noth London N22). Prices are lower and quality better than most supermarkets .. chicken breast £4.5 kg/ minced pork 3.50 kg topside £7.5 kg whole corn feed chicken £5.50 and the list goes on ..
I used to have a similar problem about toughness etc. Tried every way I could think of. The answer was to buy an Aldi sous vide which was reduced to £20. Significant difference cooking it for 24 hours at 56°C. Still have to watch out for pieces with too much fat or gristle though.

Mince it. If you haven't got a mincer, chop it as fine as you can with a knife. Mince & tatties/dumplings, bolognaise, chilli, whatever you'd use raw mince for.
I have been buying this topside from Morrisons for the last 3 years, And have never had a bad joint yet, A tip from me, Is seal it first all round in a little oil,Then add it to a roasting bag with a few onions, Seal the bag and cook it , Cook the 2kg joint and for my liking medium - rare cooked at gas mark 6 for 1 hour,The last 15 minutes of cooking time remove the joint from the bag & place back into your oven.
Anyone know if these are the vacuum packs or if it's the counter meat?
Biltong!

When a beef joint comes out tough, I bung it in the pressure cooker for a few minutes to tenderise it, then turn it into a stew.

Guess this will have to do if I run out of toilet roll.
Grab it before it becomes £50 per kg
Ask for the corner cut of topside from the butcher's counter, it's the best end of the topside, which is the cut in the picture.
How much was it a Kg before this offer?

Fresh meat at Asda is rank.
Put it in a slow cooker.. Falls apart.
Wish I couldn't see morrisons offers.

There's not one near me and its a bit sad to see these deals.
I microwave it! Steaming is better.

Chanchi would know how to make a good masala with it ! He is the King chef.
I shopped at Morrisons for years but after watching prices rise all the time I changed to Aldi far better prices and quality

Agreed, the same with Middle Eastern supermarkets, which often have butchers. (And before anyone goes on about halal, almost all supermarket meat is halal by default so they can maximise profits)

Counter meat, you can ask if they can vacuum pack it for you.

You can see what you're buying with counter meat. Their vacuum packs have been dire in the past - poor butchering.

i find asda is rubbish for meat. normally buy steaks from aldi but couldn't be bothered making a special trip as everywhere is manic, needless to say the asda steak was terrible.
Great for cutting in chunks for casserole and pies etc too. Great price, topside is a good cut, cook slowly with roast tatties mmmmm
