A classic corned beef, also known as silverside, screams English comfort food for me. On my English side, everyone loves it and it’s a homely dinner to serve to your loved ones. It also keeps in the fridge for a few days afterwards.

Serves: 6



  • 1.2kg–1.5kg silverside piece
  • Water, enough to cover beef
  • 1 cup malt vinegar
  1. Place corned beef in medium-sized stockpot and cover with water. Add vinegar and bring to boil.
  2. Lower heat to simmer and cook for about 3½ hours.
  3. Remove beef from water, drain, cover and rest for 15 mins then slice.
  4. Serve with buttery mashed potato and peas for an ultimate English dinner.
