Our 100% Pasture Fed Beef Silverside makes a great option for a Sunday roast.
The Beef Silverside is a classic cut that takes its name from the silvery sheen covering of this hardworking joint.
Cut from the hind leg, the Silverside does a lot of work as our cattle meander around the farm, grazing rich herbal pastures. Because of all of this activity, the Silverside is tougher than; Topside, Rib or Sirloin - other classic roast beef cuts. However, what it lacks in tenderness it makes up for with beefy flavour.
The trick to really enhancing Silverside for a Sunday roast is to cook it hot and fast, keeping it rare, then slice it thinly.
If you plan to serve our Grass Fed Beef Silverside joint any way other than blushing pink, it's best to opt for the long slow approach and pot roast with plenty of liquid and aromatics.
All our grass fed beef is hung on the bone to enhance its wonderful flavour. Our team of Artisan butchers then meticulously prepare each cut ready for you to enjoy at home.
To defrost the Silverside, remove it from the freezer and leave it on your kitchen worktop for one day. Alternatively, place the Silverside in the fridge and allow it to gently thaw for two days.
Before cooking, remove the packaging and allow the joint to dry out and reach room temperature.
Generously season the meat using good quality sea salt and cracked black pepper.
Preheat a fan-assisted oven to 200C. Place the Silverside on a roasting tray and into the hot oven for 15 minutes, allowing the joint to turn golden brown.
Turn the oven down to 180C and cook for 45 minutes per kg.
For best results, use a meat thermometer. Remove the joint from the oven once it has reached 45C in the thickest part. The beef will continue to cook while it rests, taking you to a final temperature of a maximum of 55C.
Leave to rest uncovered for 20 minutes before carving.
All of our meat is delivered frozen ready to pop straight into your freezer, once defrosted these can be kept in the fridge for up to 3 days.
