Dalepak Chinese Style Ribsteaks
Advantages: cheap, quite tasty
Disadvantages: naughtyness on the plate, high fat content and salt
Dalepak chinese style pork ribsteaks. These can normally be found in the frozen section of any good supermarket and are nearly always priced at one pound and you get 4 ribsteaks in a box. Quite good value for money at 25 pence a ribsteak but its only untill you cook and eat one of these you realise why they are so cheap !!!
I thought i would do some vegetable rice and a bit of salad with two ribsteaks, the packaging states it takes between 17-20 mins in the oven but you can also grill them (and somebody told me you can microwave them, not for me to be honest lol). so i put two grillsteaks on to a baking tray and whacked them in the oven 200 degrees.
when the time was up i opened up the oven door took out the baking tray and was greeted by the grillsteaks absolutely swimming in fat and juices, far far too much. the smell was quite nice but the most off putting thing during the cooking was the fat content having taking up most of the baking tray !.
Reading the back of the box later reviled that they contain 84% tender minced pork, which had me wondering for such a cheap product with such a high meat content then it couldnt be the best cuts of pork thats for sure, hense such amounts of fat coming out of them during the cooking process.
The salt and fat contents in these ribsteaks are amazingly high, so i would not recommend people eat them often not unless you want a blockage in the vains somewhere !.
Two is enough for the average adult as part of a meal and maybe just the one for a child, though personally if i had children i wouldnt serve them up for dinner because of the contents and such high fat.
After reading what others on this site have been commenting about this product is people have found fragments of bone inside the grillsteaks. Touch wood that has never happened to me i have always felt them to be of "ok" quality. But then maybe that was just luck on my side. I think if i found bone i wouldnt be able to go back to them.
If you like a chinese style taste then these can be a ok treat from time to time.
A word of warning tho , please do stick to the times given for cooking on the box because i found just a few mins over the time stated results in dry , actually, VERY dry grillsteaks.
i will be buying them again for a naughty cheap meal. But i wouldnt rush out specially to get them anytime soon :)
Summary: yummy if you can turn your mind off to wondering what they actually are made off
