Corned Silverside

Corned Silverside is an easy meal – it’s very lean, exceptionally rich in Protein, Niacin and Iron – and a great source of Vitamin B2.

Why is it called “Corned” Silverside?  The term comes from when the salt used to “pickle” the Beef was large grained salt – the rock salt used then were called “Corns” of salt.

Corned Silverside has been a favourite for many generations, one has really stood the test of time. Namely it is easy to make and left-overs can be used in so many different ways to make it into a completely different meal.

Because it has been around for so long – different states and countries have different terms for it.  You might have heard of it referred to as Corned Beef, Pickled Beef or Salt Beef.

Palmdale Village Meat’s Corned Silverside is very Low Sodium has NO nitrates, NO gluten and absolutely NO preservatives

All of Palmdale Villiage Meat’s Corned Silverside is from only the Eye of the Silverside, giving you the very best cut of meat.  The stuff you buy in tins and in some supermarkets are very low quality indeed, older – tougher – meat and seasoned with a zillion additives to make it tender – best to buy from a reputable Butcher, like Palmdale Village Meats, Poultry and Seafood!

saus in brown onion gravy

Sausages in Brown Onion Gravy

A delicious, hearty meal – a family favourite of ours…. I’m trusting you with the recipe 🙂 When my girls moved out of home… this dish was front and centre in the “Dishes Mum Cooked” recipe book I gave them! It has evolved over the past 30+ years to the rich, luscious recipe you see below.

While it may take a few hours to simmer (essential for those amazing, rich flavours so inherent in the dish) – it is easily made in the morning or even a day or two before, and just reheated for your meal.

small selection of chicken from Palmdale Meats

Slow Cooked, Apricot Chicken

First of all….. NO!  This is NOT the old 70’s/80’s favourite using french onion soup and apricot nectar (although my hind brain memory remembers that fondly)

This is a tiny bit more sophisticated, less sodium, less sugar, just as easy and absolutely delicious!!

Before the recipe… a quick word about the Chicken sold at your favourite Butchers,  Palmdale Village Meats, Poultry and Seafood. They get their Chickens from Greenslade Chickens.  An incredibly well known and respected Free Range Farm in the Riverland, South Australia – yup, local – and when Greenslade say “Free Range”, they mean it!  Now a large farm, but still family run after over 20 years – producing Free Range (from birth), grain fed.  Greenslade Farm actually grows the crops needed for the chooks themselves.  The Chickens are Antibiotic Free and totally Nitrate Free.

Chicken that tastes like Chicken should!

So, now the recipe….
