Aldi is reintroducing its much-loved giant steaks as a Specialbuy.

The 454g rump steaks cost just £4.99 and will be available to buy from Aldi stores across the UK from next Thursday (28th March). According to the discount supermarket chain, the steaks are made from the ‘finest cuts’ of British beef matured for 21 days.

As the steaks are one of Aldi’s Specialbuys, stock will be limited. Once they’re gone, they’re gone, so you’ll have to get in quick. The last time we saw Aldi’s ‘Big Daddy’ rump steaks pop up on supermarket shelves was back in January, and they’re always hugely popular.

‘I was banging on the door at Aldi Didsbury at 8am this morning to get my hands on their 16oz special offer “Big Daddy” rump steak for under £5. Bought 4 of the bad boys. #jobdone #theearlybirdcatchestheworm,’ one happy customer Tweeted.

The largest single rump steaks currently on sale in UK supermarkets, they work out at just £1.09 per 100g. Watch out though – they contain 568 calories each!

Often called sirloin steak in America, rump steak is taken from the back of the animal and is known for its succulence and tenderness.

Aldi suggests that you lightly season the steaks before shallow frying or grilling them on a medium to high heat. If you like your steaks rare, you can fry them in six minutes or grill them in eight. It’ll take up to 13 minutes of frying time or 16 minutes under the grill to get them well done.

This week, Aldi is launching a budget-friendly Mother’s Day gift collection as part of its Specialbuys range – and it’s packed with amazing deals, from balloons to footspas!

Last month, the budget supermarket got customers excited when it brought back its sellout wagyu beef meatballs for a limited time. While wagyu beef sells for up to £500 a cut in Japan, savvy Aldi shoppers could pick up 12 meatballs for just £3.49.
