Meals from a Morrisons £10 meat pack

Last weekend, I snapped up a Morrisons Meat Pack on offer for a tenner. 

Here’s what it contained:

  • 900g pork loin joint
  • 8 ‘The Best’ pork sausages (536g)
  • 433g diced braising steak
  • 454g steak mince

Total weight: 2.3kg

Does the Morrisons £10 meat pack save money?

I always wonder if these promotions are actually a good deal, so I checked what the items would have cost individually from the butcher’s counter:

  • £3.60 for the pork, on offer at £4 a kg
  • £3.48 for the sausages, at £6.50 a kg (which is at the pricier, premium end)
  • £2.72 for the mince, at £6 a kg
  • £4.55 for the braising steak, at £10.50 a kg

That tots up to £14.35, making the pack 30% cheaper!

Even compared to what I’d normally buy, taking advantage of a ‘3 packs for £9’ offer and adding something else for £3 to £3.50, I still saved money.

Making meals from the Morrisons £10 meat pack

I reckoned the meat pack would make four main meals for our family of four. 

I always stretch limited quantities of meat with loads of veg, rather than for example facing complaints if I put two lonely sausages on each plate!

I knuckled down to a whirlwind of cooking one morning and chucked together:

  • Irish stew in the slow cooker
    • Adding celery, onion, carrots, potatoes, a beef stock cube, a spoonful of plain flour, a bit of balsamic vinegar and tomato puree and a glug of red wine to the braising steak
    • To be eaten with green beans
  • Sausage and pepper goulash
    • Adding red onion, mixed peppers, chopped tomatoes, smoked paprika, the last of the tomato puree, a stock cube and a bay leaf to chopped, grilled sausages
    • To be eaten with mash or rice
  • Beefburgers
    • Adding grated onion, grated carrot and 50g of oats whizzed up in the food processor to make 6 quarter pounders
    • Bunged in the freezer for a speedy meal before scouts on Friday
    • To be eaten with burger buns, lettuce, cheese, tomato and potato wedges

I also put the pork joint in the freezer, to be resurrected for Sunday lunch:

  • Roast pork with crackling
    • To be eaten with roast potatoes, carrots, broccoli and apple sauce.

How many meals did the £10 Morrisons meat box make?

When this deal was on offer previously, it was touted as providing enough meat to feed one person for a fortnight, so 14 meals. 

I planned on four main meals for the four of us, so 16 portions plus hopefully a few leftovers.

In the end, there was a lot of  sauce left from the Irish stew, even if we devoured all the steak, so my husband took it as soup for a packed lunch.

Similarly, there was a reasonable amount of peppers and sauce leftover from the sausage goulash, which he took to work today with the remaining mash.

There wasn’t anything left from Friday night’s burgers. My husband and son normally hoover up two each, with one each for my daughter and me. I don’t expect there will be much left from the roast meal either. 

But still, 18 portions from the £10 Morrisons meat pack worked out well for us.

Now – over to you. If you eat meat, what would you have made from the Morrisons meat pack? Do share in the comments, as I’d love to hear. I’m always looking for meal ideas my kids are willing to eat!

    The only thing I would change is the mince meat burgers, I would have made meat balls served with rice,grate medium onion herbs spices teaspoon Dijon mustard salt pepper add wholemeal breadcrumbs and an egg mix all together and form into small balls put in fridge to firm brown on pan or in oven on an oiled tray make a tomatoe sauce ( like a basic bolognese with loads of veg mushrooms carrots onion garlic any soft tomatoes you have etc and couple tins tomatoes season well, when sauce is done add meatballs and cook for 40 minutes at a simmer add a tin of canellini, or chick peas drained, you should get about six portions from this amount, it is quite filling with the added chick peas when serving I deliberately put two portions aside to freeze
