  • Yields: 5


Silverside (low carb)

1-2kg piece of corned silverside/brisket

1.25L sparkling mineral water

1 lime

1 lemon

Sides (optional)

Oven bag

Vegetables of choice



1Remove silverside from packaging, rinse, place in slow cooker

2Slice each lemon and lime in half and add to slow cooker

3Pour over 1.5L sparkling mineral water

4It's ok if it doesn't completely cover the silverside. I turn mine over half way if I'm home. I don't worry if I don't.

5Cook on high for approx 6-7hrs

Sides (optional)

1Peel/wash vegetables of your choice.

2Place them in an over bag.

3Tie bag and pierce at top as per oven bag instructions to allow venting.

4Slowly submerge the bag gently into the slow cooker beside your silverside at the desired time remaining (below), leaving the pierced area and tie above water level.

5Times: Hard vegetables like potato, carrot, sweet potato etc add bag 3hrs prior to silverside finish time. Soft vegetables like zucchini, asparagus, broccoli etc add the bag approx 1hr prior to silverside finish time. You can add multiole bags if they fit 🙂

6Check vegetable tenderness to be sure it's done to your liking.

That’s a great idea with the veg

I’m converted!
This will be the only way I cook silverside from now on.
I only had an orange and half a lemon, so in they went. I had lemon and lime juice so a good squirt of each.
The smell was sensational and the meat tastes divine. A slight sweetness but far from overly sweet.
This is a winner 😊
