Super Tender Coca-Cola Silverside 5 0 5 5

Easy Coca-Cola Silverside

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

    8 hrs

    8 hrs 5 mins


1 Piece of Silverside/Corned Beef (and any size you wish)

3 cans of 375ml Coca-Cola


1Rinse Silverside/Corned Beef

2Place Silverside/Corned Beef in slow cooker

3Pour over the 3 cans of Coca-Cola (doesn't matter if it doesn't fully cover the Silverside)

4Cook on low for approximately 8hrs

5I've seen the Gingerbeer and Lemonade varieties of Silverside recipes and thought I'd give this ago. And plus all I had in the house was coke. This version is super tender and the kids loved it and wanted more.

6Served with Mashed Potatoes and a lovely white sauce.

I had slow cooked my corned beef with the 3 cans of Coke.
I know,..a lot of but for anyone interested,,,
For the vegetables in this recipe and whenever I cook vegetables I always use.
“BETTER THAN BOUILLON” brand stock base.
For this recipe I used the “Roasted Chicken” as I like the flavor that it adds to Veggies. It’s made with seasoned roasted chicken. The same with the beef. It has roast beef in it.
I cooked my veggies in a pot with about 12 cups of water with 8 tsps of “Better Than Bouillon” stock base. I was only cooking for 2 so I did not make a lot of veggies this time with my corned beef.
Water/ Bouillon amounts don’t always have to match. Using to taste is best.
It comes in a 16 oz. jar ( 1 lb.) which you keep in your fridge and a little goes a long way,
1 tps. of BTB is the equivalent to 1 bouillon cube or 1-8 oz. can of broth which I really like as it’s low in Sodium and Organic and not pricey.( I forgot the price or I’d tell ya.)
I buy at local grocery store and it can also be bought ( but they are often out of stock, at Costco.)
It comes in Chicken, Beef and Vegetable flavor. I try to keep all 3 in stock here in my fridge.
I add these to almost everything that I cook. To anything that I cook with water, ( of course not desserts), 😊

At what time during the 8 hours would you add the carrots, potatoes, onions and cabbage if you’re making this for St, Patty’s Day? The same time as you would without the coke? Thanks!

So today I thought that I would make silverside as I haven’t made it for a while.

I cooked the silverside as per directions (see below link) with coke (I used coke no sugar)

And I followed the cheese mustard sauce directions as below.

OMG I don’t think I will ever go back to the way I use to make it. Thank you very much the the people that provided these recipes.

Really nice. I did this with 1 can less of cola and it was so tender and tasty! Thank you

I would think 5hrs on high would be closer to what you need for that size

8 hours on slow could you do 4 hours on high? Meats only 1.5k

You could though they’ll take up the flavour too
Another option is to add them in an oven bag, tied and vented as you would do it in the oven, just keep vent above fluids 🙂

Could you add vegetables to this?

Sugar free is fine and works just as well as I often use sugar free ginger ale/lemonade or mineral water 🙂

Hi, does it need to have sugar in it. Can it be coke zero for example ?

Fixed that now thanks 🙂

just noticed that it says in the cook time its 4 hrs 50 minutes – yet in the body of writing for the method it says 8 hours.

I have also added 2 cloves of garlic and a few bay leaves – delicious

Sure could .. any carbonated drink will do the trick 🙂
