Silverside with Honey and Mustard sauce (Corn Beef)
This is a really easy meat to cook in the camp oven, slow cooker or oven and they are pretty cheap to buy. This one was $7.95 and it will do the two of us for 2 dinners and 1 lunch or breakfast.
This piece weighed in at 967 grams so just under a kilo.
After taking the meat out of the bag coat it in flour, seasoned with salt and pepper.
Sear it on all sides in a hot fry pan to give it a nice crust.
Don't forget to put a rack in the bottom of your camp oven.
Put the meat in a dish and place it in the oven, now pour in as much Ginger Beer as will fit with out it spilling over.
Cook it over the side of the fire with no direct flames, turn once or twice so it cooks even.
Cook for 1 1/2 hours then place 4 to 6 heat beads on top of the lid for another 30 mins.
Check the liquid as you go and top up as needed but only in the first 1 1/2 hours after that leave it to reduce down to a golden sticky syrup and it will coat the meat adding extra flavour.
When you think its done then leave it cook for another 20 to 30 min and it will be falling apart and will melt in your mouth.
Let it sit on the chopping board for 10 mins or so before carving.
In that time you can make the sauce.
Honey Mustard Sauce
2 Tbl Butter
2 Tbl Flour
1 1/2 cups Milk
2 1/2 tsp Hot English Mustard
3 Tbl Honey
Melt butter in a small pot over a low heat, add flour and cook for a couple of minutes stirring.
Add milk and continue stirring to prevent lumps. Add the mustard and honey. Bring just to the boil and remove it from the heat.
With this dinner i also made Potato Bake and Cabbage.
Corn Beef and Cabbage is a traditional meal in a few countries.
Cabbage- cut thin and fried in a little butter (NOT Margarine) with salt and pepper.
Do not over cook this, it should still have some crunch to the cabbage. And will only take a couple of minutes.
4 Medium Potatoes sliced
1 Tbl French Onion Soup (dry mix)
300 ml Cream or Evaporated milk
Bacon cooked or Ham
Salt and Black Pepper
Par boil the potatoes, drain and add to your camp oven.
Mix the soup, cream, salt and pepper, pour over potatoes add the bacon and cheese on top.
Place camp oven off to the side of the fire don't have direct flames on oven or it will burn.
Turn a few times during cooking.
Cook 25 minutes then add 4 heat beads to top and cook another 20 minutes.
I use long life cream or you can also just use milk if you have run out of cream.
