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

We have some delicious and popular Corned Beef recipes on the blog. You can make Slow Cooker Corned Beef or Instant Pot Corned Beef recipe. Corned beef leftovers don’t have to be boring when you can make these delicious sandwiches for lunch or dinner.

Easy Corned Beef Sandwiches

Sandwiches and Corned Beef 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! Also, a good deli sandwich will make you come back for more and more every single time.

Every time I am at a Jewish dinner, I have a hard time deciding between the pastrami sandwich and the corned beef sandwich. Most of the time I will choose the latter because Corned Beef Sandwiches are my absolute favorite.

With this easy recipe, you can make them anytime you want! I love using Slow Cooker Corned Beef in this recipe and highly recommend you make it too!

What Do You Put On Corned Beef Sandwiches?

These flavorful and delicious sandwiches are perfect any day of the week. You can enjoy them for St. Patrick’s day, to host a party, or game day. You will need:

  • 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!
  • Oven option –  it will take about 4-6 hours, depends how big is the brisket.
  • In the Pressure Cooker – it will take about 1.5 hours, try my Instant Pot Corned Beef recipe.

I don't think I have ever had pickle relish on a corned beef sandwich before! This looks delicious. :)



Love this! Great way to change up sandwiches!

Ummmmm....where you been hiding ? Pickle relish been around since year dot. You been missing out. Enjoylol.



Hello! Thank you for this recipe. Could you tell me if you used the point or flat cut of corned beef? I'm making corned beef for my Irish girlfriend and her family, and these sandwiches look better. I just don't want to mess it up. I want them to look shredded/pulled exactly like yours. Thank you. :)


Usually, the flat cut is used, and it shreds amazingly! I have the recipe on the blog, look for Slow Cooker Corned Beef of Instant Pot Corned Beef!



Easy, simple and delicious! I love using leftover corned beef and make these. Super delicious and highly recommended!
