More Corned Beef Ideas

Are you tired of corned beef yet?

Or of me talking about St Pat's Day?

Well, just one more and I PROMISE I will quit! It's just hard to stop talking about corned beef when you have 9 lbs of it on your hands. I am not good about "serving" leftovers. Having the same thing 2 or 3 days in a row is so *YAWN* boring! Usually I try to reinvent them. One of my favorite things to do with leftover corned beef is make these simple sandwiches.

Corned Beef on Onion Rolls

First thing is to slice the corned beef thinly. Yes, I do have a slicer because not only am I a gadget hound, but my hubby spoils me rotten! I just love this contraption.

Next, open an onion roll and pile on the corned beef. Top with Catalina dressing and a slice of Irish style Swiss cheese and enjoy!

To go with it, I pulled all the cabbage I had made with the corned beef and made this wonderful soup! I was trying to find the recipe I had used before for cabbage soup. I couldn't find it anywhere but I came across this one on the internet. It is a Weight Watcher's recipe and you can eat as much of this yummy soup as you want! You can find the recipe here.

Doesn't it look yummy?! I finally used my soup tureen for soup! Imagine that.

As if you haven't had enough cabbage here is my recipe for cole slaw. My husband loves this and swears it is the best ever!

Cole Slaw

1 bag cole slaw mix
1 cup mayonnaise
1 cup sour cream
4 Tbs sugar
1 Tbs white vinegar

In medium bowl, mix all ingredients except slaw mix together. When blended, fold in cole slaw mix. Blend well. Mixture will look dry. Cover and refrigerate atleast one hour. Before serving, mix again. Mixture should now be wet.

There ya go! Just some ideas of what to do with leftovers to reinvent for another meal.

I can't believe you have a slicer! You are my hero! Anyone who can slice her own meat can conquer the world in my book.

I am so tickled that you posted this yummy sandwich. I have a corned beef in my freezer (buy one get one)and was wondering what to do with it. Now I know!
