Free range Silverside is leaner than free range topside and can be used as an inexpensive roasting joint, but the lean free range meat yields much better results as a slowly cooked pot roast.

Roast silverside of Scotch Beef PGI


  • 2kg boned and rolled Scotch Beef PGI silverside
  • 1 tbsp beef dripping or butter
  • Salt and black pepper
  • 8-12 small red onions, peeled and slit in a cross at the pointed end (so that they do not burst in the oven)
  • 4 heads garlic, halved
  • A few sprigs of thyme


  1. Preheat the oven to 220°C. Rub the rolled silverside joint with the beef dripping and sprinkle with plenty of salt and pepper. Put the joint into a roasting tin and into the hot oven for 15 minutes to brown.
  2. Reduce the oven temperature to 180°C. Add the onions, garlic, and thyme around the beef with about 100ml of water. Cover with foil and cook for about 1½ hours for medium, basting from time to time and adding a little more water if necessary. This will keep the meat moist. Re-cover with the foil each time.
  3. Uncover the meat for the last 15 minutes of cooking.
  4. Remove the meat to a warm serving dish to rest with the onions and garlic, cover well and keep it warm.
  5. Slice the beef and serve a couple of slices per person with the soft onions, a piece of garlic and your choice of vegetables.
