Tesco Finest -
Brazil Inspired Pork
With all the
other Brazil themed foodie stuff that seems
to be about with the World Cup on, a novelty
purchase for these "limited edition"
sausages is what I claim. Honest boss!
What also tempted me was the ingredients
listing Feijoada (a beefy soup) upfront,
with seasoned pork, black beans, chorizo and
rich beef stock in the back four, with
smoked paprika in the midfield. Well these
have the sort of flavours I will probably
like personally, so let's hope they live up
The packaging claims "full of flavour" and
"made with prime cuts of pork"! Hmm well I
suppose just like the England team, looked
fair on paper, but the delivery was a bit
disappointing if the truth be known.
72% meat in natural skins, good texture and
bite. The depth of flavour was OK, but we
were expecting deep beefiness from the
Feijoada (paste in this case) and the "bite"
of chorizo didn't happen in our opinion. The
ingredients worked OK together. Significant
losses though, more than expected. It wasn't
a home goal, just a bit lacking in
They did taste OK so don't feel we've been
overly hard on these but not sure we would
buy again even if there was an extended
purchase window. One of team when asked
responded that there was too much foreign
stuff in the mix these days...what's wrong
with good sage, onion or chives upfront?
Perhaps next time eh?.
