Morrisons pork shoulder price?
in Gone off!
8 replies 4.4K views
Yesterday I went to Morrisons butchery counter to buy a joint of pork. There were no shoulder joints on display, so I asked the butcher for a big one (feeding hordes). He brought out a whole shoulder, which was ideal. I didn't really notice at the time but when I unwrapped it today I saw it was £2.50/kg, so just over £8 for the whole shoulder. I've searched everywhere I can think of to try and find out if this was a mistake, or just a very good price, I can only find prices for prepackaged meat. Anyone know for sure? I'm normally an Aldi/Lidl customer, but I knew they wouldn't have a big enough joint right now.

I did wonder about that, but it was only 14.30 ish. Top tip for next week if it was!
Several times I've purchased a lump and cut it down to three joints, each making decent meals
Thanks for that, I'm going to need 2 full shoulders for pulled pork at Christmas, I'll make space in the freezer.
Today's bargains included rib eye steak, which was delicious!
Also they are unlikely to reduce the joint with a yellow sticker when someone has specifically asked for the joint.
