  • 1 piece corned silverside(11/2-2kg)
  • 10 peppercorns
  • 1/2 cup malt vinegar
  • 2 bay leaves
  • 1 onion
  • 10 cloves
  • 1 carrot, roughly chopped
  • 2 sticks celery, roughly chopped


Place the meat in the slow cooker and add all of the ingredients except for the onion and cloves.

Peel the onion leaving the root intact. Slice in half and push 5 cloves into each onion half. Place in slow cooker.

Pour enough hot water in to cover the meat.

Cook for 4-5 hours on high or 6-8 hours on low setting.


  • This is perfect served with potatoes and cauliflower with white sauce.
  • You can leave it to cool if you want really thin slices. It helps it stretch further.
