Dalepak Chinese Style Ribsteaks
Advantages: the sauce?
Disadvantages: this isn't pork as we know it!
I used to have such terrible eating habits, I'd pick up any old rubbish in Iceland under the impression it was cheap and cheerful as it cost me just £1 for the box when in fact I was paying money to fill myself with crap. I used to pick up plenty of boxes of Dalepak Chinese style ribsteaks and when I had one up my mums the other day I'm now glad I don't buy them anymore.
Dalepak ribsteaks are usually a £1 for a box of 4 in Iceland you can buy them in other supermarkets though such as Sainsburys. The box is mostly white with red decorating it, Dalepak is clearly written in the corner of the box and it also says 4 Chinese Style Ribsteaks. Theres an appetising picture of two ribsteaks accompanied by salad and what looks like noodles too. We are told on the box that these are tender pork chopped and shaped with cereal in a chinese style coating, they also contain No artificial flavours.
Each ribsteak contains;
1.0g salt equivalent
You can cook the steaks in the oven or you can grill them, I've only ever cooked them in the oven though.
They are quite a generous size and a deep red in colour. You can instantly smell a slight chinese, bbq sort of smell when they are first pulled out of the box. The chinese scent gets stronger as they cook and smells quite tasty really.
Now for anybody that really dislikes processed meat these are really NOT for you! You can see just by looking at them when you cut them open, it's as if a thousand different meats are just squashed together, almost looks like grey mince meat inside in fact with a tasty sauce coating it. Looking at the ingredients these steaks contain 84% pork, I don't really want to know what the rest is though as it's disgusting. They are strange one minute they are soft to bite into and the next I found them chewy and wet and now and then I'd bite into a hard bit, which sorry to be graphic but I had to take it out of my mouth and have a look and it would just be a white 'bit' I havn't a clue what these 'bits' are but I've had them in a few steaks, but for some silly reason I kept buying them.
The only thing that's sort of 'nice' about these is the chinese coating on top, it's a little sweet, a little tangy and quite tasty it's just a shame it's coating a load of crap to be honest! How they can claim on the box that these are 'tender pork' I don't know!
Summary: Vile, meat things that taste nothing like Pork!!
