Corned Beef Sandwiches are a really tasty Irish sandwich, especially when they are made with our homemade Russian dressing! Just one bite and your luck will change for the better! You may actually catch that sneaky Leprechaun this year and make him take you to his pot of gold at the end of the rainbow!
This Corned Beef Sandwich definitely has my own unique personal twist. If you want to make this more like a traditional Rueben sandwich, just swap out the coleslaw for sauerkraut. I am not a big sauerkraut fan, my husband loves it but I think it tastes rotten. So I swap it out for coleslaw and some sliced pickles so that I can actually enjoy this yummy sandwich. If you want to go with my version, my Corned Beef Sandwiches are especially good with our Coleslaw recipe HERE and Homemade Russian Dressing recipe HERE.
This sandwich is perfect for leftover corned beef if you are making some up for St. Patrick’s Day. Or if you are just wanting to make up a sandwich, you can do like I did and get some thick cut slices from the deli. If I am making this sandwich, I usually need to run by the store anyway to pick up some Rye bread and sliced cheese from the deli.

Corned Beef Sandwiches
- black bread (like a Rye or Black Pumpernickel)
- sliced corned beef
- swiss cheese (other cheese is fine too, I did Havarti)
- sliced pickles
- Russian dressing (try ours from scratch, recipe link above)
- On one slice of bread, layer the corned beef and top with cheese. Place under the broiler in the oven until cheese just starts to melt.
- Remove from oven and top with coleslaw and sliced pickles, then drizzle with Russian dressing and top all that with the other slice of bread.
