Instructions

  1. Remove silverside from poaching liquid. Discard liquid and solids. Cover silverside with foil and set aside to rest for 10 minutes before slicing thinly.
  2. Meanwhile, melt spread in a medium saucepan over medium heat. Add eschalot and cook, stirring, for 3 minutes or until softened. Add flour and cook, stirring, for 1 minute.

Notes

SERVING SUGGESTION: Steamed broccolini and baby carrots, plus steamed baby (chat) potatoes.TIP: Leftover silverside can be stored, covered, in the refrigerator for up to 3 days.Before cooking corned meat, rinse it under cold water to remove the surface brine, which can make it extra salty. When cooked, carve it across the grain so it’s tender.Eschalots are also called French shallots. They look like a small brown onion but have a milder, sweeter flavour.
