Corned Silverside

"What is left over from this meat is my favourite sandwich filling of all time!! The slower and longer this cooks the better. The sauce is a wonderful accompanyment. My step-mum always served this dish with mashed potatoes and cabbage. Her family migrated to Australia from the UK in the 1950's, so I am led to believe this is very traditional. Be sure to use brown vinegar, not white."

  • Place the silverside in a deep pot and cover with water (completely cover).
  • Add all the other ingredients and bring JUST to the boil. Turn down and simmer for 3 1/2 -4 hours.
  • Slice just enough for your meal, what ever is left - return to the water and place in the fridge, this keeps it moist and makes the best sandwich filling EVER!
  • To prepare the sauce:

  • In a medium sized pan melt the butter and add the flour, stir and let cook for 30-60 seconds.
  • Add the milk gradually stirring constantly (I like to use a whisk).
  • Cook over a low heat until thick and resembles custard. Add the mustard, stir through and serve with the meat.

<p><img src= alt=/ /> <br /><br />As a toddler, my nic-name was Pompom (my Poppy had a golf hat with a pompom and it was one of my first words, and it stuck as my nic name). &nbsp;My Poppy has long since passed, but I fondly remember him every time I log on. &nbsp;I'm a stay at home mum of four aged: 10, 8, 7 and almost 6. I have a severe egg allergy and am lactose intolerant, I&nbsp;enjoy working out ways to still enjoy food minus eggs and milk. I have been married for 14 years and have one very happy and well fed hubby.<br />My goal is to try one new recipe a week, for the past 8 years have achieved this. &nbsp;I own over 300 cookbooks, but no longer purchase them - but regularly print out recipes to try later.<br />When I am not cooking, I am busy household of 6 and going to the gym (to work off the wonderful calories I consumed the day before) and helping at school and church.<br />My philosophy in life is: as we have to eat, we may as well eat well.</p>
