A Lean Beef Joint Suited to Slow Cooking
A joint ideal for those who prefer their beef lean, with the Silverside well suited to both roasting and long, slow cooking. Sourced exclusively from grass fed beef herds reared in the great outdoors to promise only the best flavour, our Silversides are only dispatched after being expertly dry age matured to relax the meat to tenderness, before being cut to order.
The silverside is cut from the hindquarter of the beast, just above the leg, and gets its name from the ‘silver' layer of fibrous tissue that is carefully trimmed off in our cutting room. As the muscle is fairly worked by the beast, there is less marbling here, with the Silverside being leaner than most roasting joints and a popular choice for those who prefer their beef leaner.
This beef joint is flavoursome though leaner than most, and is good for roasting as well as slow cooking. In stews, be sure to keep it topped up with liquid, while for an Italian bollito misto simmer very slowly. If roasting, serve with traditional roast potatoes, Yorkshire puddings, and creamy Mrs Bridges horseradish sauce for a Sunday lunch.
