1.5 ltr slow cooker


We recently purchased a small slow cooker (1.5ltr), its perfect for the two of us.

Anyway we brought a nice piece of Silverside, obviously its two big for the slow cooker, cut in half is perfect for us, stuck the half in the freezer.

Slow cooked silverside with swede, carrot, onion, parsnip, spuds, peas and beans.

Washed dried silverside, cut a small onion in half, added half a chopped swede, parsnip and carrot, then placed to meat on top, added salt, pepper, cloves and pepper corns, turned cooker to low.

After 3 hours removed the veges and added 4 small spuds and cooked for another 3 hours, after which I  added peas and beans turned to cooked for 15minutes.

The Swede carrot and parsnip were reheated in saucepan and then mashed,  and then the meat etc was served.

Yum yum.

Guess you mean corned silverside?

Sounds great Gundog, slow cookers are an excellent way of cooking corned beef, pickled pork etc.

My better half bought a piece of pickled pork this AM, with vegetables of choice makes an easy and very tasty meal.smile

Yum, I love corned beef/silverside and boiled/steamed veggies.

My partner makes excellent corned beef/Silverside.   

It's a favourite of ours especially when on the road.   Easy to cook while we are out exploring for the day, for a hot evening meal & makes good left overs for following days.

I think that her recipe includes Brown Sugar, Brown Vinegar & cloves and always an onion or two. Of course her white sauce is outstanding.

We tried the slow cooker but went back to the 'traditional' method in a deep soup pot/saucepan.

 

I like it with potatoes mashed with lots of butter (nothing else), a generous seasoning of freshly cracked pepper and sweet pickles.  Corn is a good accompaniment too.

 

edit  .. we had it for dinner last night & sandwiches tonight.

Pretty hard to beat a homemade Tomato, Quince, Cranberry or Plum Chutney to bring out the flavour of meat.

 Thanks for that link.  It looks like a good one with easy to print out recipes.

I make lots of chutneys, pickles & jams ... always on the look out for new recipes.

Have you ever cooked Silverside that has been frozen? How successful? Do you thaw it first? 

 

I have also heard that Roasting Silverside is good too but never been tried. I have only ever cooked it in simmering hot water and vinegar in a big pot on stove. I usually add Potatoes, carrots and cabbage in last hour. 

 

Mmm, what time does that local butcher shut?

SWMBO says that she has never frozen uncooked Silverside/Corned meat.  Isn't the salting process designed to prolong shelf/fridge life.  But I can't see why you couldn't, especially when you had cut the piece in half or whatever.

BTW Did I ever mention the time when I was out pig hunting with a couple of mates. 

We were sitting around the fire at the end of a long day sucking on a few coldies watching the piece of corned meat simmering away with that mouthwatering scent wafting over the campsite, when my bloody pig dog walked up to the fire, rolled back his lips & plucked the meat neatly out of the billy & plonked it in the dirt in readiness for a good meal.  I think that we said 'naughty doggy' or something like that.  Tinned stew & eggs for us that night.

I would have retrieved the meat from doggo - rinsed it off. Maybe I would let the dog have the chewed bit.

Doug. I often oven roast a piece of Silverside (at home, the caravan oven is useless for anything other than warming pizza). Just put it in a greased pan and set oven at 180 celcius until cooked - use a skewer to determine when cooked enough.

Mmm, thanks Possum. Sounds like the BabyQ will cover that nicely. I will have to give it a go.

A generous spoon of Keens Mustard powder and a heap peppercorns goes in our silverside pot. Then raise to a simmer for a few minutes and turn off for 20 minutes or so. Do that maybe 5 times and very sweet and tender.

Daughter does the roast thing with it, slow roast though.
