Outraged Great British Menu viewers all have the same complaint as chef reveals what kind of meat they’re using

Outraged Great British Menu viewers all had the same complaint after a chef revealed what kind of meat they were using.

Thursday night's instalment of the BBC show saw the two remaining Northern Irish chefs go head-to-head and cook six courses again to be in with a chance of representing Northern Ireland in the regional finals.

Chris McClurg and Gemma Austin had to impress Michelin chef Tom Kerridge, restaurateur Nisha Katona, comedian Ed Gamble and guest judge radio presenter Dev Griffin.

For his main, County Down-born chef Chris prepared retired dairy cow barbecue fillet, ribeye tartare, short rib blue masa taco, cow puff, clamped vegetables and bordelaise sauce.

It was inspired by the winning 1980 Eurovision song What's Another Year by Johnny Logan.

However many fans took to Twitter to share their confusion over the meat.

One joked: "Why do almost all the chefs feature 'retired' dairy cow beef? When I retire, I'd prefer a bungalow in Eastbourne #greatbritishmenu."

A second pointed out: "Is it a ‘retired dairy cow’ or is just a ‘dead dairy cow’? #greatbritishmenu."

A third questioned: "Just catching up . I presume a "retired dairy cow" is one that has been milked to provide for humans and not a calf which has been taken from her. Then when no longer of use she is slaughtered. In other words a 'dead dairy cow.'"

A fourth tweeted: "‘retired dairy cow fillet’ #greatbritishmenu …hmmm think that’s more ‘dead’ than ‘retired’."
