A very easy and tasty corned beef recipe. Ready to cook in seconds!

Ingredients (serves 4)

  • 1.25 L Schweppes dry ginger ale (2 bottles if beef is over 2.5kg)
  • 2.5kg Corn beef (silverside)


  1. Add dry ginger ale to a large pot, add corn beef. Or add all ingredients into slow cooker.
  2. Allow to simmer on low for approx 3 hours or until tender. The slower and longer the more flavour in the meat (if in slow cooker, add on low for 6 -8 hours)
  3. Serve with vegies of your choice and white sauce.

  • love me some corned beef


  • I’ve never heard of using ginger ale to cook corned beef in. Thanks for this.


  • I’m another person who would not have thought to pair a silverside with dry ginger ale. It might be my go to tonight for dinner.


  • Would never have thought to put softdrink and beef together! That’s interesting!


  • Have not had this in years, really need to make it again. Love the idea it being cooked in a slow cooker as I was cooking on the stove.


  • Really must give this a go. thanks.


  • wowza – super easy. my son loves corned beef


  • Great recipe thanks


  • I cannot wait to try this – I remeber my mum making this for me when I was a kid!


  • Hi girls .Cooked this for my wife on the weekend wanted to know what I done differently as she said it tasted great told her I used ginger ale and she said cook it that way all the time.


  • Always cook my silverside this way. Love how it softens the meat and adds an impact to the taste.


  • What does the dry ginger ale do? Never heard of using it. Opposed to using water, Does it add flavour?

    • The flavour is so good. My hubby hated sliverside until he tried it the way l cook it and now we have it so often.
      The ale soaks through the meat giving a great taste.


  • I love Ginger Ale. It’s the only soft drink I buy a couple of times a year. And I never ever used it in cooking. This is something to try for sure!!


  • I have NEVER heard of anyone cooking a silverside in Dry Ginger !!! but i’m very curious, so I’ll definitely give it a try :)


  • A very easy corned beef recipe! Thanks.
