Slow Cooker Corned Beef

This slow cooker corned beef is a fantastic easy dish that is both affordable and incredibly tasty. It goes really well with some gravy and roasted vegetables.

The leftover beef can be sliced and used for sandwiches the next day. You should find that it will keep for up to about a week in a sealed container in the fridge.

This type of dish can also be referred to as a slow cooker silverside depending on where you live in the world. Despite the different name, they are the same dish.

There are plenty of side dishes that go well with this corned beef. If you have another slow cooker or crock pot lying around, then something like the cheesy hash brown casserole is a fantastic dish to try out. Another side dish that goes great with this is some cauliflower cheese! It requires a little bit of prep and cooking time but is totally worth it.

Personally, I love to have some crunchy roast potatoes and some gravy with this delicious beef. As I mentioned in the cooking tips below, you can add vegetables to the slow cooker, but I find that the vinegar often adds a bit of an odd flavor to them.

Cooking Tips:

  • While you can cook vegetables in the poaching liquid, I wouldn’t recommend it. The vegetables will come out very soft and may have a bit of a vinegar taste to them. You’re better off cooking some sides in the oven or another slow cooker.
  • If you have a smaller slow cooker or piece of meat, then you may need to use less fluid. If this is the case, you may want to reduce the amount of vinegar by half.
  • Silverside is typically affordable making it a great for when you’re running low on money.
  • Allowing the meat to will help stop the meat from falling apart if you’re trying to get thin slices.
  • Beef stock can be used instead of water, but I find that water works just fine.
  • The carrot and onion can be left out, but they do help add flavor to the overall dish. It’s entirely up to you if you want to eat these at the end or just merely discard.

Nutritional Information:

The nutritional information for this dish is a bit harder to estimate since you’re unlikely to be consuming the poaching liquid. With that said I have gone ahead and included it anyway but keep in mind these values will be slightly lower when it comes to eating just the beef.
