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.
Shelf life: minimum 6 days.
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
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
we'll choose from our selection of available breeds
It's good to eat and enjoy heritage breed meat from British breeds, showing farmers that there is a market for their herds and flocks and encourage them to rear them. Without a demand for their meat, many breeds would die out altogether. When intensive farming reigned unchallenged in the second half of the last century, many of our traditional breeds all but disappeared because they don't take kindly to factory farming. We want to change this and help more people realise that we need to safeguard the natural biodiversity of our farm animals and to demand meat with intrinsic flavour that comes from higher welfare systems. All of our meat fits that bill perfectly.
