So disappointing. It was as tough as shoe leather. Cooked it as per instructions and was awful. It didn't state that it was Irish. I wouldn't have bought it had I known as I've had bad experiences with Irish beef before. Certainly would not buy again.
This is the second time I have purchased a joint of Silverside from Tesco. I thought the first joint was just a one off bad joint. The second was even worse ! Never again will I be buying meat from Tesco
tougher than an old boot
this was ,without doubt, the WORST beef joint I have ever bought! It was just one large lump of gristle masquerading as beef. It was unchewable and I even had to mince it up for the dog.
This small beef joint was really tender and tasty
This small beef joint was really tender and tasty when cooked. I loose wrap the meat in tin foil, changed the oven temp, 20 min on fan 200 then 1 hour on 160. take out of oven and leave in the tinfoil for 10 min.
You could cut this with a fork...
I don't often write reviews but I enjoyed this so much I felt I needed to, to balance the other reviews. I decided to cook this in my slow cooker with a beef stock and some red wine. I cooked it on low for about 6 hours. It was the tastiest, fat/gristle free joint of beef I have had for a long time. You could cut it with a fork and nothing went to waste. Whenever cooking beef always do it low and slow.
Like a Rubber Ball !
Cooked for 20 mins on 200 degrees then 20 mins 170 . Still tough an inedible. Don’t follow pack instructions either as worse. Won’t buy again.
Full of gristle

Very tough even though it was cooked medium rare.
Very tough even though it was cooked medium rare. Didn't realse that Silverside is a cheap cut, so I woudn't buy it again.
Didn't follow cooking instructions. Cooked 20 mins on high heat then 25 mins on low. Beef was lovely, medium, tender and juicy plenty left for another meal for two.
Saw the negative reviews after I had bought this. My heart sank....so googled a better way to cook it, as opposed to the instructions on the packaging. 20 mins on 200 fan, reduced to 170 fan for another 20 mins, rested for 20 mins. Carved finely....delicious, tasty and tender! Defo would buy again.
