Thermomix Corned Beef or Thermomix Silverside?

Published , Last Updated

I had no idea what to call this recipe? I grew up hearing the name silverside. Although I’ve always called it corn beef. I think the correct name may be corned beef as it refers to the preparation process? For the purpose of today, I am making Thermomix corned beef.


The first time I made corn beef in the Thermomix it was a revelation! Steaming the beef in the Varoma keeps so much more moisture in the meat. The result was a delicious, “melt in the mouth,” piece of corn beef.


When you’re selecting the meat to make a Thermomix corn beef, it’s important to choose a fairly consistent, rectangular shaped cut. I usually choose meat which is 1.7kgs, or thereabouts. This size piece of meat allows the steam to circulate well ensuring an even cook.


Whilst the corned beef was cooking I also added some new, baby potatoes to the internal steaming basket. The potatoes were added in the last 45 minutes, and they cooked perfectly. Allowing the water from the corned beef to cook the potatoes resulted in some rather delicious spuds!

Or you could make this delicious Corned Beef & Cabbage Soup. It’s Keto friendly and a low-calorie winter warmer.

Oh, and in case you’re wondering, silverside refers to a description of the cut of meat used for corned beef in Australia. That’s why we quite often call it silverside.

    I have a piece of corn meat that is only 1180g .. how long do I cook for ??

    1. Hi Amanda
      It will still take most of the cook time. Just check it 20minutes before the end. If you can tear the meat in half with a fork it’s done ????????

    This recipe was a winner! The meat was tender, sauce delicious. I put potatoes in the last 45 mins as suggested and as sauce was cooking made old fashioned mash with the cooked spuds. Definitely a go to meal.

    1. I’m so pleased you enjoyed it! Thanks so much for coming back and leaving a comment 🙂

  4. Angela Boyd says:

    What temperature

    1. Hi Angela, the corn beef is cooked at varoma temperature which is the maximum temp.

  5. Katrina says:

    Just wondering how many potatoes you woul put in?

    1. Probably 2 or three chopped up depending on the size of the potatoes. 🙂

    Delicious!! And super easy in the thermomix. Thank you

    1. Hi Sekai
      I’m so pleased you enjoyed the recipe. Thank you so much for your kind comments.

  7. Amanda nevin says:

    Hi, I’m cooking one to be used for cold meat only (no sauce) should I add anything to the water to flavour the meat?

    1. Hi Amanda
      Thanks for messaging.
      The meat is cooked in the Varoma and is only steamed. So it would be a waste to add any flavours to the water if you arent making a sauce.
      Happy Cooking

    This is another family winner! Absolutely delicious. Love your recipes Julie. Thank you so much for sharing this with us.

    I give it a 5, no doubt about it.

  9. This is probably the 4th time I have cooked corn meat using this method.I will never cook it any other way ever again,just so easy and the end result is amazing.

  10. Phoebe says:

    If I only wanted to cook one half this size would it be possible would I half the cooking time ?

    1. Hi Pheobe
      Yes you can do a smaller piece of meat but don’t reduce the cooking time by half. Just take about 15 minutes off the total time.

  11. Gabriel Trujillo says:

    No seasoning fo the meat?
    Only the sauce.
    I’ll brine it. What say you?

    1. Corned meat is already brined, there is no need to brine it. Xx
      Trust the recipe

  12. Catherine says:

    By internal steamer do you mean in the varoma or in the thermo bowl? In the middle of cooking right now!

    1. Hi, sorry I have just seen your message. The internal steam basket is the round one which fits inside the TM bowl.
      Happy cooking

  13. Claire Foster says:

  14. Lilly says:

    Hi, can extra silverside be stored in the freezer once cooked?

    1. Hi Lilly
      Yes, the extra silverside can be sliced and stored in zip lock bags with the air removed. It’s a great way to always have sandwich meat on hand.
      Happy Cooking
