Went out and did some food shopping, first to Aldi, then M&S.
I was looking around when I noticed that there was a reduced M&S Select Farms Aberdeen Angus Beef Côte De Boeuf.
However I also noticed that there was a member of staff doing the secondary reductions on the other side of the aisle. I had to wait around the aisle for a while, as the M&S person reducing stuff got round to it. The full price was nearly £27 and I got it for just over £9.
I did think about potentially getting something like this for Christmas dinner, so was pleased I could give it a try before the festive period.
Back home went to cook it. I followed the instructions for the Côte De Boeuf. This required seasoning the joint and then searing and browning in a hot frying pan before placing in a hot oven.
I did initially think I may have undercooked the joint, but when I carved it, I realised I had slightly overcooked it compared to how I wanted it.
It was lovely and tender, but it didn’t have the flavour I thought it would.
I certainly would get it again, but only if I either got it reduced again, or had loads of spare money to pay full price.
