Thermomix Corn 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 corn 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 less. 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 corn beef to cook the potatoes resulted in some rather delicious spuds!

Oh, and in case you’re wondering, silverside refers to a description of the cut of meat used for corn 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 ????????

  2. Kim says:

    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.
