Our Simply Roast In The Tray Beef makes the perfect beef joint – no mess, no fuss – just pop it straight in the oven. And we’re delighted it’s just been named Product of the Year for convenience!

Simply Roast In The Tray Beed

The winners of Product of the Year are voted for by a panel of over 10,175 consumers carried out by TNS – these are just some of the comments from them:

“I like roast beef but don’t really know how to cook it so its simplicity appeals to me”

“Substantial meal, quick and simple to place straight in oven”

“The simplicity of the product no wrapping the meat with tin foil just slid in a cook!”

We love this shopping list drawn up by five-year-old Eva. She texted this photo to her daddy, Valentine, while he was shopping in Asda – and if you look carefully you’ll see she’s added an extra ingredient of her own!

Eva’s Mum said: “Daddy makes an infamous korma. He hadn’t taken the recipe with him, so Eva looked in the recipe book, wrote out the ingredients he needed, and then texted him the list from Mummy’s phone. He used our new slow cooker to make a white curry. Yum.”

We’re pretty sure “lots of sweets” aren’t in the original korma recipe – but you can’t blame Eva for trying. And with a smile like that who could refuse!

Eva, who turned five on Christmas day, says her favourite foods are pizza, popcorn and “juicy pears like Grandad has”. Her mum says she likes gymnastics, pantos and dancing to Elvis – and her best friend Lottie of course!

The family live in Leeds and are regulars at our Owlcoates store in Pudsey. Kat says they like the range of products at Asda – and the prices.

“The 10” pizzas made in store (2 for £4) are delish and good value!"

Asda Boldon are inviting parents of pupils from Boldon School in South Tyneside to use their car park for a ‘Park & Stride’.

Pupils and Community Life Champion Tracey at Asda Boldon

Parents are able to park in the car park in the morning and afternoon and walk the extra half-mile journey to the school. It’s a great way for families who live too far away from the school to walk to get a healthier start to the day – while cutting road congestion at busy times.
