Next, you want to grab a bowl and place the silverside into a bowl, and coat the silverside in brown sugar and let it sit for as long as you can before cooking it. the brown sugar caramelises when cooking to produce a nice crust full of flavour.

While the silversides resting you can get the camp oven-ready, the sugar naturally becomes moist, every now and then recoat with the sugar that goes to the bottom of the bowl.

Get the camp oven and place it on some bottom heat, place in a trivet and add some brown vinegar and water to the top of the trivet and then add your mixed herbs, cloves, black peppercorns and bay leaves.

Note: The mixture is like how you would boil it however you are using at to create steam.

You will want to cook the baked silver side for about 2 hours, for the heat control, you have just enough heat under the camp oven, the idea is to have the liquid simmer away in the bottom.

And plenty of heat on the top, but not too much as it could burn, the top heat is to bake the silverside.

Note: The outside will look like it’s burning however it’s the sugar that’s cooking.

When its ready slice it up and eat it with whatever vegetables you cooked to go with it, it’s even perfect on fresh bread.

Rember you want it still firm, not falling apart when cutting it up.
