This cider-braised corned silverside is delicious and filling, perfect for a cold winter day. The corned beef is cooked in a flavourful mixture of cider, vegetables, and spices, and then roasted in the oven until golden brown. The sauce is made with a simple roux and the reserved cooking liquid, and is tinged with mustard and brown sugar. Serve with shredded cabbage and fresh parsley for a complete meal, and use any leftovers for our delicious Corned Beef Reuben Sandwich.
