Got one yesterday, for Christmas day (Beef and turkey is our family tradition)

It worked out less than half price. Went from 17.99 per kg to 4.99 per kg.

Yay!

wow

well i'm not a massive fan of our mr t, but i have to say this is a brill offer.

I got a massive piece yesterday for 25, was half and half as to what to do, hubby usually loves to get the meat.

I put it in the freezer for christmas day, and asked hubby to play the guess the price game, he said 40, as that is what he was going to pay in morissons.

Well chuffed.

Anyone else tried the Tesco Rib of Beef yet? I am not a fan of supermarket meat but it seemed too good a bargain to miss, so bought some and stuck it in the freezer. If it gets the thumbs up then I will take it out and cook it on New Year's Eve when we are having friends round. [Really don't want to have another disaster - on Christmas Day left DH to carve the turkey and found him cutting across both breasts, straight through the back bone!]

This was one of the best joints of meat I have had. My family were amazed! We always have beef and turkey, we have turkey leftovers, but, all the beef has gone.
Not sure when the offer ends but I would like to try and get another one to freeze.
Hope this helps x

Lovely the best piece of beef i've had in a long while.

cooked it for christmas dinner along with a turkey,

the beef went down a treat,

i went back to our tesco for more but they'd not had a delivery.

wish i'd got more at the time now.

Care to share how you cooked it. I usually cook it the 'Paula Deen' way. Preheat the oven to 190. Make her seasoning (salt/black pepper/garlic) and rub well in. Place on rack with ribs down and fat up and roast for one hour. Turn off oven and leave for 3 hours without opening the door. At the end cook for a further 30-40 minutes.

With nothing added

just put the roast in a roasting dish,
small bit of water in bottom
covered loose with tin foil,
slow cooked on a low light for about 4 hours,
then removed the foil,
and last 30 mins
covered un-covered

it was lovely

we dont' like to put stuff on, or in our beef, so always cook most joints as above.
