You probably have corned beef leftovers and you can easily put together this amazing sandwich. But if you don’t have corned beef leftovers, do not worry, I have the recipe for you. The best part is that, St. Patrick’s days just passed, so all corned beef is on sale…right about now!

Anytime I eat at a deli, I always order a corned beef sandwich. There is so much flavor in corned beef and truth be told homemade corned beef is so much better than what you can get at the grocery deli counter. But don’t get me wrong if you don’t feel like taking out your crockpot, you can buy corned beef at the deli counter. It doesn’t taste the same as the freshly made corned beef. The 10-hour wait is well worth the wait.

Best method of cooking for corned beef

I love corned beef and I have tried every single method of cooking it. I must report that the slow cooker is by far the superior method. It yields the most tender, perfect texture corned beef. Other cooking methods like slow baking it in the oven, or slow cooking it in the Dutch oven work too, but nothing compares to cooking it in the slow cooker for about 10 hours. Ten hours? Yes, I know it sounds like a very long time, but it is so worth it. The final product is a tender juicy corned beef that is to die for.
