No mine often doesn’t, and I just flip it half way through cooking time. However if you are unable to or it concerns you just add extra ginger beer to cover 🙂

Does the liquid need to cover the meat? I cooked this the other week with liquid coming halfway up the meat and the meat was dry and fell apart. Not pleasant at all.
June 15, 2022
I don’t like ginger beer myself so used 4 x 375ml cans of Kirks Dry Ginger Ale in a 3.5L slow cooker and it came out perfectly when I finally turned it off at about 8.5hrs. First time doing it this way but will do it again for my partner when he comes over as I think he will love it too. We are eating it on sandwiches with sliced tomato and home made butter.

No one in our house likes the drink either and yet this is our favourite silverside recipe by far 🙂
Different strokes for different folks
May 25, 2022
I tried this tonight and while there was nothing wrong with the way it cooked, no one in our house was over keen on the flavour. No one likes Ginger beer so why I thought we’d like this recipe is beyond me!
April 11, 2022
I cooked this for the first time tonight. We loved it. Will definitely make it again.

Simple & delish very tender with subtle ginger flavour !
May 22, 2021
This was so nice and easy. Made a white sauce to go with it and served with steamed veg. The family enjoyed it.
April 30, 2021
So yummy with mustard sauce.
No picture I forgot 🤦♀️.
Enough for leftovers.

This is the only way I cook silverside. I use 2 x 1.25lt bottles of gingerale to cover the corned beef YUM
February 10, 2021
cooked my first sliverside/corned beef the other day with dry ginger ale. instead of veg and mash potato i cut it and added to my pasta with homemade tomatoe pasta sauce, it was tasty and great as quick reheated meal after a bike ride. and gave me around 5 meals.
February 7, 2021
After reading all the positive comments in the Group about cooking corned silverside in ginger ale I tried this for the first time yesterday.
Very happy to say the results were excellent.
I followed the recommended cooking time, the taste of the ginger ale was subtle which suited us fine and the meat was beautiful and soft and tender. Definitely a winner.

After a few failed attempts I’ve mastered the ginger beer silverside recipe. It’s easy , tastes amazing . I’ve learnt the different cuts of meat needed to do this( there lies my precious fails) well worth it . Serve with cauliflower in white sauce mash and veggies . Devine

I was a bit sceptical at first but after failing miserably cooking silverside the old stove top way on so many occassions I just had to give this a go. Worked perfect and so, so tender and moist. I’m the only person in the household who likes it so…its all mine 🤗
September 8, 2020
I cooked my corned silverside in ginger ale for the first time last week and was a little worried as I’ve done it in the stovetop for over forty years, but it was delicious. I won’t bother doing it any other way from now on. I’m only sorry it took me so long to try it!
July 4, 2020
Family favourite! When told it’s what we are having for dinner hubby says “life just doesn’t get any better” !
July 3, 2020
OMG wat an amazing dish i will not cook my silverside any other way everyone loved it not salty at all cant wait to make it again
May 1, 2020
Made this tonight with diet ginger beer, was amazing, so tender and tasty, not over sweet at all, cooked on low for 8 hours and sliced beautifully but melted in your mouth, will be doing again
I use ginger ale, an orange sliced into quarters, 2 bay leaves and 6 peppercorns.
No tea towel for silverside. It’s for baking/cakes type recipes
Tea towel or no tea towel?
April 7, 2020
I used ginger ale, I have tried both sugar-free and normal and prefer the version with sugar. Converted my fussy “only eats a tiny bit of silverside on Xmas day” partner into ‘silverside is a regular dinner’. Love it.
April 6, 2020
This is our new favourite way of cooking corned beef. So simple. We cook all day so it starts to fall apart.
So easy, tastes great. Love it!
February 21, 2020
I luv this I won’t go back to the old way. 😋
January 16, 2020
Made the silverside with dry ginger ale, delicious, and will make it again!
January 11, 2020
Yes Sherlene 🙂
My first ever sc silverside. I used sugar free ginger ale and the salty taste I remember from my youth was not there at all. I liked the meal but would have preferred a little of the salty taste. It went well with mash and veg, and a white sauce. Will try it again with sugar free lemonade.
Good day , this beef , would it be the same as CORN BEEF BRISKET ?
January 9, 2020
this recipe is awesome we have it once a fortnight with mashed potatoes , pan fried beans in butter and cracked pepper corn and white cheese sauce ( don’t use to much cheese in sauce )
Love this recipe. It’s the only way I cook silverside any more. So tasty!
December 6, 2019
I made this yesterday and it was amazing, just a little hint of ginger.. 😊
I love this website and now I’m trying SC lasagne.
August 13, 2019
Yep I only use sugar free myself and it’s perfect 🙂 It’s the bubbles it needs, not the sugar 🙂
As I don’t eat sugar, will I get the same results from diet ginger ale or does the sugar component do something special to the meat?
July 21, 2019
Corned silverside for this one Kylie 🙂
July 20, 2019
Just a question but do I use corned silverside or silverside roast for this? Or it doesn’t matter?
July 13, 2019
I made this last weekend and it was absolutely delicious! And so simple
My family love it with “dry ginger ale” 6-8 hours and is delicious! They won’t it any other way!
No it’s ok if it’s not completely covered. I flip mine half way if I’m around but it doesn’t matter if you don’t do so 🙂
July 12, 2019
Making this tomorrow have never made it before , do i need to completely cover the meat
June 3, 2019
I was hesitant to try because i hate ginger beer. But this was amazing! Going to only make it this way from now on.
April 28, 2019
I was a little unsure of using ginger beer but wow this is a really great twist on silverside. Very delicious. I’ll be using this again.
April 2, 2019
First time doing this dish and ….wow, soo yummy. Added some of the cooking liquid to the white sauce and put veggies in for the last 1.5 hours, so easy and not “gingery” if you thought it would be (I used ginger ale, not ginger beer though)
February 26, 2019
Beautiful yet again!!!
Recipe is fab & easy 🙂
October 11, 2018
Wasn’t sure how this would turn out as I’m not a big fan of Ginger Beer but…. OMG this meat was amazing&so easy to prepare. Definitely doing this again
August 25, 2018
Delicious! Firm family fave.
July 27, 2018
The only way to do Silverside in my opinion. I also add garlic cloves and bay leaves to it and if I’m feeling extra special a tin of Beets.
July 22, 2018
Delicious! I usually use ginger beer and flip it over halfway through.
Goes well with a honey mustard white sauce
June 26, 2018
How delicious …..I used dry ginger ale the meat was so tender and tasted sooooo good
June 24, 2018
Simple no fuss recipe! Delivers tasty tender meat with subtle hit of ginger. I used ginger ale option.
June 9, 2018
After years of doing the whole vinegar, onions etc thing I cooked this today in my slow cooker. It was so easy and tender and delicious. I used ginger ale and couldn’t taste it. And so easy with only just two ingredients. My husband is fussy and he really enjoyed it.
June 6, 2018
My husband absolutely loves ginger beer silverside! I’ve just put mine on for tea, and will cook on High for 2 hours then 3 hours on Low, because I’m running a bit late. Going to experiment with putting in carrots, onion and garlic for the last 3 hours.
This was an absolute hit!!! As beef cattle producers corn meat is something we cook all the time. I decided to give this a go, much to my families disgust & it was perfect! Everyone commented on how good it was & it is definitely the way I’ll be cooking it in the slow cooker from now on.
Thanks for the recipe!!!
May 19, 2018
Absolutely delicious! So simple and great flavour!
April 15, 2018
can it be cooked on high for 4hrs
February 18, 2018
Tried this today for the first time, and all I can say is delicious. I used diet ginger ale. Will be doing this again for sure. Leftovers will be great in sandwiches 😀
December 6, 2017
Doesn’t have to be fully covered 🙂
If I am home I’ll often flip my half way through but it’s ok if you aren’t there to do so
Just getting ready to make it now, does the meat need to be covered with the ginger ale?
December 1, 2017
I’ve cooked silverside in a slow cooker for years but never used this method before. Definitely my go to recipe from now on. So quick and easy and tastes amazing
November 22, 2017
WOW……. Thank you Paulene 😀
This recipe came out beautifully. I cut the silverside to fit my cooker (1.5l). Regularly added ginger beer to keep it covered. 4 hours later. YUMMO, told NEVER to cook it any other way. And that is from a tribe of fussy eaters.
November 21, 2017
Cut it to fit into your slow cooker then fill almost to the top with the ginger beer/ale 🙂
Sorry if this is a dumb question. I only have small sc 1.5l can you cut silverside in half to make it fit or is this unadvisable? And do you cover the meat with ginger beer. Just don’t want it to dry out.
November 20, 2017
As big as you need
I usually do between 1-2kg
November 17, 2017
How big is the piece of silverside supposed to be?
November 15, 2017
Should be … for such a large piece if you have extra time give it 10hrs …Or if you have auto do 8hrs on auto as that will be high the first 2hrs then it goes low 🙂
Cooking a 3kg silverside in slow cooker with only dry ginger ale, will it still only take 8 hours on low. have cooked before in pan using water vinegar cloves and mustard seeds was awesome
November 8, 2017
Really easy & 2 ingredients even better! I opted for ginger ale. The silverside was heavenly ⛤⛧⛦
Do yourself a favour – make this you won’t be disappointed!!
October 31, 2017
Amazing Roslyn. The meat fell apart and I made a Cheesy Mustard Béchamel for the first time to accompany it. Served with boiled potatoes, Pumpkin and peas. None left for sandwiches lol.
October 2, 2017
I made this and I was sceptical , I will be making it like this from now on. Awesome taste and so easy. Full of flavour ,it is cooked when you insert a metal skewer and skewer comes out easy , great with white parsley sauce. Yummy. Mine was cooked in less time than the recipe states.
September 26, 2017
Tried this and loved it my wife loved it as well and very little left for next day in sandwich’s. If you have not tried this do your self a favour and try it
August 6, 2017
Lovely! On low for eight hours and turned out delicious.
July 24, 2017
I’m going to make this it sounds yummy
July 8, 2017
From the start if they are whole
July 7, 2017
at what stage should I put carrots in to cook?
June 7, 2017
Wow. First mouthful at the table, and it got a thumbs up all round. Safe to say I will be making this again as the family gave it a 9/10! (I used Ginger Ale.) A member on the FB page also provided me with a mustard sauce recipe to go with it. I don’t like mustard but oh my word, it was delicious. Leftovers went in the lunchbox sandwiches too.
March 2, 2017
I don’t like ginger beer/ale either and I LOVE this!
March 1, 2017
Ok, so I was a little worried about making this. I am not a ginger beer or ginger ale fan and thought that it all I was going to taste. However, I did go ahead and make it. Now I have grown up with my mum cooking silverside but with vinegar, mustard, herbs and a few extra special ingredients. I have tried to make hers but have always failed and my husband would never eat it. So I thought I would give a new recipe a try and OH MY… not only was it yummy (no ginger ale taste, just a small sweetness taste) my husband ate it and request I make another one!! WINNING! Will defiantly keep cooking it this way and it is so easy.
January 7, 2017
I rub fat side (facing up) with some brown sugar as well and place some orange slices on top of that. Adds extra flavour. Even if using ginger ale I still add a bay leaf and a dash or either brown or apple cider vinegar. Old habits die hard. Delicious. Also, if you wish, you can place on a bed of onion, celery and carrots for extra flavour. I usually discard the vegetables…but you don’t have to.
September 13, 2016
Tried this the other day and was tasty and so quick and easy!
August 27, 2016
No … just the ingredients as per recipe …..
Trust me 😉
August 25, 2016
Hi! No salt/pepper/garlic? 🙂
August 4, 2016
If in doubt just turn meat half way through cooking time that’s what I do 🙂
August 3, 2016
I have a 6L slow cooker so would I have to add extra ginger beer/ale or anything to cover the meat or is it ok to only have it partly submerged in liquid?
July 22, 2016
I always only use ginger ale also 🙂
I have tried it once with Ginger Beer didnt really like the taste but i have made it few times with Ginger Ale. I prefer the ginger ale it gives it nice flavour. I have it on now in my slowcooker for dinner tonight in Ginger Ale. 🙂 thanks for sharing this awesome recipe 🙂
July 17, 2016
Loved this – have done it 6 times now with each one a hit.
June 10, 2016
I’ve got it in my SC now. Fingers crossed. 🙂
May 17, 2016
Ginger beer will give a stronger ginger flavour also compared to ginger ale 🙂
I use ginger ale myslef
*i used dry ginger ale* This is a nice recipe. However i found it a bit bland tasting compared to my usual recipe i use. It is still a good recipe and it doesn’t have a strong ginger taste (i would say it is very subtle). It cooked well and i like that it just has 2 ingredients.
