Description

The Silverside is 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.

How to cook

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 horseradish sauce for a Sunday lunch.

About the cut

Silverside

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.

About the breed

Highland

The flower of Scottish cattle breeding

Tasting notes:

Region:

The Highland is an instantly recognisable Scottish favourite, and a true heritage breed. Its shaggy coat and short legs mean it is well suited to grazing on steep valley sides or on windswept moors, in often tough conditions. Its unqiue long in the mouth flavour results from the Highland taking longer to mature. This lets the flavour develop naturally, giving it an almost gamey character. This, and the fact the Highland is well marbled but not excessively so, makes this beef very popular with chefs.
