Beef cuts, will this be ok?


I have a Silverside rosting joint in the freezer and I  want to cook the recipe on the link below, which calls for Beef Brisket.  Will the beef cut I have work? … t-chilli-1

Re: Beef cuts, will this be ok?

side by side with the same dish made from a brisket the results would be noticeably different.   That being said, silverside  is well suited to a long slow braise and should pull apart quite nicely and the spicing will  keep it to a similar flavour profile.  It will be its own thing but still quite nice.

I've never cooked silverside. I know it's a lot leaner than brisket so will cook differently.

If I was you I'd check the meat earlier than it says for brisket - it may arrive at a point where it slices nicely and that might be better than pulling it, because of the lack of fat.

But this is just my instinct.

Hi, the results will be slightly different as it is a different cut of meat, however silverside does lend itself to long and slow cooking and will fall apart after 4 1/2 hours cooking so definitely give it a try. That's what cooking is all about. Have fun and I hope the results are delicious.
