So yummy!! Super moist and tender, couldn't stop myself from picking and eating it. Though I didn't have golden syrup, I used honey instead and it turned out very nice. Also I cut down on cloves and orange. I used 1 orange and probably 20 cloves as my meat was a little smaller than the recipe. Served it with mustard sauce ( I put some horseradish cream in for an extra flavour ( I foundmustard suace itself a little too bland). Will definitely cook it again and again!!

This is the best recipe for corned beef. i never thought that so many cloves could make it aste so good. I have cooked this for others and they've said the same thing. it's a winner.

Have tried corned silverside other ways but after making this numerous times I have to say this truly is the best on the planet!!! We've passed this recipe onto others who have happily raved about it to no end - thanks :)

Yummo, I agree with the description! This is much more flavoursome that the usual vinegar based cooking methods. I also included a few vegetables in the pot and it gave them a great flavour as well, although you wouldn't want to use any of the stronger tasting vegertables. I used carrots, celery and corn cobs.

Yum!! The juiciest corned beef around. I have to admit only cooking corned beef a few times due to my DH thinking his Mother makes the best around so I hadn't even bothered to compete...well did I show him with this recipe! Instead of studding the beef with the cloves I just tossed them in along with the oranges (my family isn't too keen with the strong flavour of cloves)and you still got plenty of flavour from them without it being overpowering. Thanks for sharing.

I am no chef, but a very late comer to cooking and I found this recipe simple to follow and the critics raved about it. Just the softest, juciest corned beef ever. Thanks.

My family loved this corned silverside. I had always made the vinegar/golden syrup recipe also, but this will be the new standard in my household. I cooked mine in the crockpot for 5-6 hours and put some carrots in part way through cooking. I did not stud the meat with the cloves as my family are not that keen on a strong clove flavour, but put about a tablespoon of them into the water. Yum!

We really enjoyed this. Very yummy! I cooked up a 2kg piece and left it on low on the stove top for over 3 hours (Hubby got home late from work). I wasn't sure whether to cover or not but went back and read a few other recipes and decided to. The cloves have quite a strong flavour and my daughters were a bit unsure of it but the orange flavouring is just perfect. Served with Jen T's Mustard Sauce Mustard Sauce which I made with a cup of your cornbeef stock. I do have leftovers which I will use in sandwiches today. Thanks for posting.

Tried this out for my friends and family, who are all big corned beef fans. Everyone thought it was the nicest they had tried. I'm having leftovers right now and its just as good the next day! We had southern fried cabbage, mash potato and broccoli with it, as well as white sauce and dijonnaise. The best part was the smell while it was cooking. i usually don't cook corned beef, even though i like it, because of how strong smelling the water can be. But this time the smell, taste and texture were all perfect! Thank you SO much!
