Salted Beef Sandwich

I love this Salted Beef Sandwich recipe especially for a lazy Sunday evening when I have plenty of leftovers from the weekend and don’t feel like lifting up a finger and clean up all the mess in the kitchen! As regards salted beef, I always keep a can of corned beef that I use either for this recipe or the panackelty, I add some red cabbage slaw and in 10 minutes everyone is munching his sandwich!

What is the Salted Beef Sandwich?

I must warn you that my version of the Salted Beef Sandwich is really addicting and I find myself rotating the recipe using leftover brisket, chicken, pork, and any sliced cooked meats.

Simply put, my standard recipe is a corned beef sandwich with homemade red cabbage slaw with a honey mustard dressing. I find that the sandwich tastes much better when it’s all packed with juicy coleslaw. Also, you can use a normal bread roll, ciabatta, Sicilian bread, whole grain bread, or just plain white bread as you prefer. However, the bread turns a simple sandwich into a special dinner.
