The last ingredient in glaze is “ginger and mustard sauce” Is this a typo (Ginger & Mustard Sauce recipe is directly below this”?
Sounds amazing and I am cooking the meat at the moment!

I tried this recipe. Delicious. Better than my glazed Christmas ham and cheaper!

Hi Liz, it does not need to be fully covered by liquid, however when simmering it does need to be covered with a lid. Hope that helps :)

I also would like to know if the silverside needs to be completely covered,?

This may be the recipe I've been looking for. I hadn't thought of the Granny Smith apple. I was considering something similar with crumbled cinnamon stick and some cloves. Thanks!

Should the ginger beer cover the whole piece of beef completely?
