Nice, simple & delicious. I’ll be cooking it this way from now on!

I don’t use it as yes it’s very salty

Can I use the liquid left after cooking the meat or would it be too salty?

Nothing πŸ™‚ Lot’s don’t rinse at all Taryn so don’t worry if you forget πŸ™‚ Others like to rinse as they feel it reduces saltiness πŸ™‚

Made this , was not disappointed. Melt in the mouth, tasty will be adding this to my recipe folder.

I’d go 8hrs high myself for that size … It can be done longer on low but I just find high never disappoints for a large piece πŸ™‚

How long should I cook a 3 kg pice for

I add sliced carrots celery + leaves onion shallots leek Handful Corrandiar & basil white vinegar cloves pepper corn & brown sugar & cover with just enough water & cook on slow up to 8hrs or so on low I wash mine 1st with warm running water before placing in the s/c I serve ours with horseradish sauce mash & Streamed veggies

I’d still give it around 8hrs at least … you can’t really overcook it but if it’s undercooked it’s not as tender πŸ™‚

This is one of my kids fave β€œred meat with white sauce”!
It’s so easy and so delicious!!
One of our family go to Sunday meals πŸ™‚

It’s hard to overdo silverside so if it’s a large piece adding an extra hour or two is ok

Hello- would I need to increase cooking time for a larger piece


February 11, 2018

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.

So long as the meat has the fluids submerging it and around it then it should be ok πŸ™‚

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…

Hi Nadia
You’ve lost me on the layers part? Not sure what you are layering?
But as for the silverside you can use as big a piece as will fit πŸ™‚

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

Not garlic cloves .. actual CLOVES
You’ll find them in the herb section … like little hard black stick ends

In recipe it says 2 cloves of garlic then 4 cloves of what?

Old fashioned flavour without the sugar. Great when watching the waistline! Served with 3 veg.

First time cooking silverside in the slow cooker and it came out beautiful! Super soft and wonderful flavors πŸ™‚

Awesome – thank you!

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!

This is for cooking one that is already corned πŸ™‚


September 7, 2016

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?
