  1. Hi, I have several pieces of silverside I received when I bought a side of beef for the first time. I believe they are still in their raw state.
    Is this the method you would use to corn a piece of raw silverside that had not yet been corned or is this how you cook it once it has already been corned?

  2. I would never have dreamt that I would ever cook silverside, everyone else in the family cooked it but I had a fear of ruining it so never tried. That is until I saw this easy slow cooker recipe and it’s magnificent! The meat is melt in the mouth, so tasty and did I say it was easy? Thank you, I will be doing this again and again and again!

  3. Expecting big gang on Friday (10 adults, 8 kids), so I’m wondering if I can throw a silverside in my 6,5 litre sc? Also wondering how much meat should I buy and if it’s going to work if I put it on 2 layers actually as one layer will not suffice. Do you have any ideas? Thank you

  4. Sorry for confusion, I meant 2 pieces of meat to put one on top of the other, thus forming 2 layers. That will perhaps fill in the whole sc with meat, not sure if it will cook properly that way, when there’s so much meat…

  5. Mann yum. I do mine very similar to this. I don’t have garlic or peppercorns. I add 1 cup of brown vinegar, 2 tbsp of brown sugar, 1 onion, 4 bayleaves, 6 cloves, water and silver side.

  6. This is one of my kids fave β€œred meat with white sauce”!
    It’s so easy and so delicious!!

  9. Very good indeed, everyone enjoyed the flavour and nothing left on plates.. Great meal, will have this one again for sure.

  10. Hi Pauline …. I am cooking a silverside for tea with this recipe but only a small one – 1kg. How long would I have to cook it for?
    Thanks in advance for your assistance.
    Love your website.
    Cheers, Lynden
