Never before have I bought vacuum wrapped steaks in a packet, but there's always a first time. I'd noticed that they were on 'special offer', so I took the plunge. I felt strangely 'guilty'.
Inside the pack there was a double tray of 2 x 130gm, vacuum packed, ready seasoned, steaks. The pack said they were guaranteed to be tender.
I gave them about 4 minutes in a very hot oiled pan, and they certainly looked good. I served them with chips and a small salad; the way that we always eat our steaks.
So, how were they? They were certainly tender, the seasoning didn't seem terribly natural (3 different pepper corns), and they tasted very slightly sweet. At 130gms each they were not as big as I would have liked. Otherwise we both agreed that they were very good value for money, at about €3.20 for two.
Would I buy them again? Possibly yes. Another time I would certainly add my own seasoning (salt, pepper, garlic), but I would be happy to have some either in the fridge or freezer.
The company 'Charal' is usually associated with good quality; I would give them 7/10. I wouldn't buy a similar product from an unknown company.
That's one more thing off the bucket list!
