Corned Beef Sandwiches are the homemade take on the classic deli sandwiches of corned beef with toasted rye bread, sauerkraut and Russian dressing.

Corned Beef SandwichesCorned Beef Sandwiches are my weakness. I live in New York City, and we have lots of deli shops here. We also have a lot of Jewish eateries. Do you know what those two have in common? They serve amazing sandwiches! A good deli sandwich will make you come back for more and more every single time. Everytime I am at a Jewish eatery, I have a hard time deciding between the pastrami sandwich and the corned beef sandwich. Most of the time I will choose the later, because Corned Beef Sandwiches are my absolute favorite. With this easy recipe you can make Corned Beef Sandwiches anytime you want! I love using Slow Cooker Corned Beef in this recipe and highly recommend you use it too!

Homemade Corned Beef Sandwiches

What Do You Put On Corned Beef Sandwiches?

  • Rye Bread – well, this is not IN, but classic corned beef sandwiches are made on rye bread.
  • Russian Dressing
  • Dill Pickle Relish
  • Sauerkraut
  • Swiss Cheese – this one is optional, a jewish eatery will never serve their sandwiches with cheese.

How Do You Cook Corned Beef?

  • In the Slow Cooker, it takes about 8-10 hours on low and this is the recipe I always make!
  • In the oven –  it will take about 4-6 hours, depends how big is the brisket.
  • In the Pressure Cooker – it will take about 1.5 hours.
