BBQ Pulled Silverside Sliders

A  delicious and refreshing way to cook and eat this old skool ingredient with a fresh cockney slant – get your gums round these buns. Loving it, loving it, loving it………


Prep Time: 15 min

Cook time: 15 mins

Serves: 4 - 6


1 tsp olive oil
knob of butter*
1 onion, finely sliced
1 garlic clove, roughly chopped*
pinch of dry chilli flakes*
8 small gherkins, thinly sliced
1 kg silverside, *cooked & pulled apart
(for this recipe I cook my silverside with chunks of apple in the stock – massive flavour, delicate sweetness – great way to use up old dry apples)
couple dashes of Worcestershire sauce
knob butter
freshly ground black pepper
125 ml BBQ Sauce
½ cup fresh parsley, finely chopped
handful fresh thyme leaves

*Jax Food Hax : Garlic and Herb Butter


In a large frying pan, pour in your oil, butter and sauté your onion and garlic, until soft and fragrant.

Add the gherkins, toss through the onion mixture, then carefully in handfuls scatter over your silverside. You may need to add a dash more oil. Cook, turning occasionally for 3 – 4 minutes.

Increase the heat and add the Worcestershire sauce, cook for a minute then add your knob of butter and plenty of freshly ground black pepper.

Cook until the meat is starting to breakdown and crispy on one side, this should take about 10 minutes.

Pour in the BBQ Sauce and gently toss through, remove from the heat and add the herbs

Serve: on the burger bun slathered with lashings of mustard and my fresh apple slaw
