Arlene Mobley - Flour On My Face
Got some leftover Corned Beef from your St Patrick's Day celebration? Make Corned Beef on Rye with Sauerkraut sandwiches with it. This is how I enjoyed corned beef and sauerkraut any time of the year when my grandmother would cook corned beef.

Recipe Expert Tips

  • Corned beef: Cooking the corned beef over a low simmer on the stove or in a crock pot will keep the soft and tender.
  • Spicy Mustard: I love spicy mustard with corned beef but you can use any type of your favorite mustard on sandwiches.
  • Best corned beef side dishes: Homemade coleslaw is one of the best side dishes to serve with corned beef.
