Lemonade Silverside 5 0 5 29

Fall apart tender slow cooked silverside/corned beef with the slightest hint of sweet

  • Prep: 5 mins
  • Cook: 8 hrs
  • 5 mins

    8 hrs

    8 hrs 5 mins


1 piece of corned beef/silverside (whatever size your family needs)

1.25L of lemonade


1Rinse silverside

2Place silverside in slow cooker

3Pour over the full bottle of lemonade - It's ok if it doesn't fully cover the silverside

4Cook on low for approx 8hrs

1Inspired by the Gingerbeer Silverside recipe but a nice alternative for those who don't like ginger. This version has a mild hint of sweetness to the meat and is super tender!

2Lovely served with mashed potato, seasonal vegetables and a lush cheese sauce or white sauce

Great taste and l will be making my silverside this way all the time

Oh dear – I must the only non 5 star review here….. Sadly this silverside recipe gets the thumbs down in this household. I’ve always cooked it in the slow cooker with a cup of water, dash of brown or white vinegar, seeded mustard and a heaped tablespoon of white or brown sugar which has never failed. But I was looking for something different that everyone has raved over and I feel bad to say it was not good. That weird subtle lemonade flavour tasted urgh….

I tried this tonight with 2ltrs of lemonade and oh my gosh it was mouth watering. My fussy 7 year old licked the plate clean. Served with garlic mash and steamed veg. Absolutely amazing.

I thought it sounded a bit crazy …….. but I have to say it was the best corned beef I have ever had ….. sooooooooooo tender .Will definitely be doing this again

I’ve not tried that with the lemonade recipe but if you do let us know how that goes πŸ™‚

Hi I usually use water to cook the corned beef and use the water it cooked in to make a mustard sauce… could I still use the liquid to make sauce?
Thank you!

Go high all the way πŸ™‚

I want to cook this tonight but only have about 6 hours to do it in.. do you think I could put it on high for 6 hours or maybe high for 3 and low for 3 ?

I find it best to cook sides separate and serve with mash and veg πŸ™‚

Would it be beneficial to maybe add a carrot or something too it? Or what to cook on as a side dish?

I hated corned silverside as a kid because it was always too salty until my brother cooked it using gloden syrup on it, I’ve done it many ways since and it’s never been as salty as back in the day, but this lemonade sounds good will def try it thanx


April 22, 2018

I absolutely hated silverside growing up.
I couldn’t eat it for years until one day I was game enough to try this recipe. It’s perfectly tender and not super salty.
This is now on regular rotation in our house.
Thank you!

OMG I have never cooked corn beef before my mum always used to do it, well I decided to give it a go and I used ginger ale .
Well I’ve had 4 pieces to taste test lol, my partner is coming for dinner but we have something else planned but I know he wants to try it tonight, so could be a fight over it as it is sooooo good, just the hint of ginger and it’s not sweet or salty, will definitely do this again.

I love this recipe turned out delicious definitely will be using this again thank you

Had this for dinner tonight, I must say I was very skeptical but I needn’t have been. It was just beautiful falling apart and so delicious, my husband loved it too. My new favorite way of cooking silverside. Thank you it’s a winner in my house!!

First time cooking silverside as I’ve always done it the old school way. Turned out exactly as recipe states ‘tender with a slight sweet taste’ this will be the way I cook silverside from now on…

I must admit I was a bit sceptical having cooked Silverside the ” Traditional Way” for many years. The ultra simple and quick method , along with the fantastic reviews , convinced me rather quickly to give it a go. I too only had diet lemonade but it cooked just beautifully. Being so tender with a subltle sweetness , compared to the old vinegarish taste, was a winner with our family. Lots of leftovers found their way into sandwiches for school and work lunches today. Thank you .

Absolutely loved this best silverside I have made yet! Was so tender half of it fell apart as I was pulling it out of my sc

I’ve seen that done too
It’s the carbonation of the drink that makes it tender so really you can do any flavour you like πŸ™‚
Sometimes I just do straight sparkling mineral water too
