Here’s How To Make Traditional Corned Beef Silverside!

I love it because the leftovers can be used to make into corned beef fritters.


  1. Place the corned beef in a medium-sized stockpot and cover with water. Add vinegar and bring to the boil.

  2. Lower heat to simmer and cook for about 3 ½ to 4 hours.

  3. Remove beef from water, drain, cover and rest for 15 mins then slice.

  4. Serve with buttery mashed potatoes and peas for an ultimate English dinner! And the leftovers are fabulous for sandwiches through the week.

  5. TIP: If you want to cook this beforehand firmly wrap the beef in a few layers of foil once your drain it to stop the beef from drying out, the foil will also keep it hot for about an hour.

My mum swears that the only vinegar you should use when cooking corned beef is malt vinegar. No other vinegar will do! She says malt vinegar adds great flavour.
