Lamb SILVERSIDE 330X330

THE CUT

Taken from the hindquarter, the silverside is a small, roughly 400g cut with very little marbling of fat and a wide grained texture. It gets its name from the shiny silvery membrane covering its internal surface. The lamb silverside has two distinctive muscles with fine grain in one (the eye of the silverside) and a coarse grain on the other. 
 

HOW TO COOK

Remove your lamb silverside from the refrigerator 30 minutes before cooking to allow it to return to room temperature. Season the silverside before searing it on all sides over high heat in a skillet or frying pan. Roast in a preheated oven at 180°C for 20-30 minutes depending on your desired degree of cooking. Internal temperatures should read 45-50°C for rare, 55°C for medium rare, 60-65°C medium and 70-75°C for well done. 

Rest covered in a warm place for 10 minutes before carving.
