If that is the case eat chicken, as better not to pay and also be disappointed and waste your time/money preparing a roast and all the work involved to be left with a table of poor meat.
I have eaten this rubbish from supermarkets silver/topside and it is a complete waste of time and money.

no problem at all if you cook it the right way;)

Similar deal at Asda at the minute....£4.40kg but includes te much better Top Rump joints

Never had a problem with this, we always stock up.

Give Mr Ramsey a £4 joint and me a £13.50 i know which will taste best. Believe or not a lot of people out there cannot cook/prepare a joint as it should be so spending £13.50 a kilo would just be a waste to me. A £4 joint will cover my needs and whilst it may not taste sublime i will never know any different. Maybe one day i may make an effort in meat preperation unfortunately the day is not yet. Hot from all average cooks like me.

Shin of beef is delicious put it in a pot cover with hot stock and or wine with carrots. celery. onions, black pepper a couple of Bay leaves cover and cook for 3/4 hours on gas mark 4. Cheap meal tastes divine.

Oh - those were the days - dtd - and eating beef for free - made some lovely stews with the silverside - yum yum.

Silverside is regarded as a slow roasting joint,in fact many chefs also regard topside as the same.The nicest imo is forerib of beef on the bone,and if you can afford Sirloin which is the best for roasting as it comes with a lovely layer of buttery fat.
Also when buying try and look for a piece with some marbling(little veins of fat) running through the meat,these melt during cooking and make the meat more tender.

When this beef is as cheap I buy extra and mince some and freeze it,ideal for chilli,bolognaise,shepherds pie etc

Stop it, This threads making me hungry.

pinocchio there is nothing wrong with this if cooked right. Cooked a few of these before in the slow cooker and the meat was very tender. Obviously if you can't cook a joint properly then it won't be great, same goes if you spend £13 per kg

most of you are right the meat is a waste of money ,morrissons is far better ,silverside nice but salmon cut is heaven.

Take a leap of faith buy a Organic Beef First Wing Rib Joint you will be amazed, the trouble is though once you have eaten this you have taken the red pill and see how deep the rabbit hole goes.

too late.oO

Silverside and Topside can produce good roasts if cooked properly.

Obviously a rib roast is the next step up but not everybody can afford to splash out.

To ensure a melt in the mouth result with topside or silverside, as previously said pot roast it or put it in a slow cooker.

Add some beef stock (even knorr stock pot if no real beef stock to hand, not oxo as they're full of rubbish and MSG) and some red wine and sit it on a halfed onion and add a bayleaf.

Put it on low in the morning and you'll have a falling apart tender joint by the evening, and use the leftover liquid to make the gravy. Good stuff.

I generally stock up when these deals come round , and yes some of the joints have been below par , but we have also had some fabulous joints . It can be a little hit & miss but at this price its a no brainer. I agree with Newbie , the average person will enjoy , just dont invite pinocchio as he will probably moan about your cheap dinnerware and crackers.

I agree with the slow cooker advice, but remember not to add any water, because whether you love or loath supermarkets, the meat will contain a lot of water. Probably better value for most people than the specialist meat dealer, but not as good as the £4:£13 comparison because of the water.

No sign of this offer in my store when I went this afternoon....infact very few beef joints at all!!!!

Is that right?
Cook it in a slow cooker?

We buy these deals every now and again, and sometimes the meat is pretty tough.

Voted hot for me. I pay £3+ for 500g of stewing beef for casseroles and this is only £1 more for double the quantity and a roast to boot. I use my slow cooker a lot and roast beef is delicious. Any left overs I use as pulled beef and warm in microwave and eat as sandwiches. Delicious.

No sign instore here either, guessing it may start tomorrow?

Topside corner cut! thats what the butcher has for tea

Cheap supermarket meat is a false economy it is not hung therefore retains more water, water is heavy right...... Do I need to go on?

Directly from the processing plant.

We don't sell directly to customers

Try Makro.

I am curious about this. Have been to my local T's and cannot find this. They do have silverside beef for £4.99 a kilo with enormous signs raving about how great a deal it is, but it's not £4 which is what your post claims? Is this store specific as the link is just to Tesco website?

I can confirm that the offer is on in there today, they had plenty of stock too.

They look pretty good to me, can't be worse than the last 'silverside' I had from Tesco's meat counter that turned out to be pork!
