Your item will arrive in a 100% recycled box lovingly packed with FSC-certified shredded spruce from Britain and Sweden, natural sheep’s wool insulation and non-toxic chilled gel packs, all of which can be reused, composted or recycled. To recycle the gel packs, simply cut a corner and dispose of the contents through your normal domestic waste system, as the gel isn’t harmful to the environment. Better still, reuse them by storing in the freezer and chilling other products. The only component from our packaging that can’t be recycled are the foil liners which need to be go in household waste; the poly bags meat comes in needs to go in plastic recycling.


Here’s cooking instruction for preparing Silverside, a popular cut of beef:

1. Start by gathering the ingredients:
• Silverside cut of beef
• Water or beef stock
• Assorted vegetables (carrots, onions, celery) for flavoring (optional)
• Seasonings (such as salt, pepper, herbs, or spices) to taste
2. Prepare the beef:
• Rinse the silverside under cold water and pat it dry with paper towels.
• If desired, you can tie the beef with kitchen twine to help it retain its shape during cooking.
3. Cooking methods:
• Stovetop: Place the silverside in a large pot or Dutch oven. Add enough water or beef stock to cover the beef. If desired, add in assorted vegetables for flavoring.
• Slow cooker: Place the silverside in the slow cooker. Add enough water or beef stock to cover the beef. If desired, add in assorted vegetables for flavoring.
4. Seasoning:
• Season the beef with salt, pepper, and any other herbs or spices you prefer. You can also add a bay leaf or other aromatics for additional flavor.
5. Cooking:
• Stovetop: Bring the water or beef stock to a boil, then reduce the heat to low and simmer gently for about 2-3 hours, or until the silverside is tender. Check occasionally and skim off any foam or impurities that rise to the surface.
• Slow cooker: Set the slow cooker to low heat and cook the silverside for 6-8 hours or on high heat for 3-4 hours until it becomes tender.
6. Test for doneness:
• To check if the silverside is cooked, insert a fork or skewer into the meat. It should slide in easily, indicating tenderness.
7. Resting and serving:
• Once cooked, remove the silverside from the pot or slow cooker and let it rest for a few minutes before slicing. This allows the juices to redistribute, resulting in a more flavorful and tender meat.
• Slice the silverside against the grain into thin or thick slices, depending on your preference.
• Serve the silverside with the cooking liquid as a gravy, and pair it with vegetables, mashed potatoes, or any other desired sides.

Remember, cooking times may vary depending on the size of the silverside and your preferred level of tenderness. It’s always a good idea to check the meat periodically to ensure it doesn’t overcook. Enjoy your Silverside!
