Ways to Use Up Leftover Corned Beef

When we think St. Patrick’s Day, we think Vienna Beef Corned Beef! After all, there’s a reason it’s the Official Corned Beef of St. Patrick’s Day. Arguably a more iconic treat than the Irish Car Bomb, this classic cut is a must have on the Irish holiday (and all year long). When the holiday passes and the leftovers are stacking up, we’ve got a few ways to take advantage of your extra Corned Beef in the fridge. 

Reuben Sandwich

You know it, you love it, we can’t get enough of it. Our Vienna Beef Corned Beef briskets are tender, moist and flavorful– the perfect cut for a hot sandwich like the Reuben. This grilled sandwich layers Corned Beef, Swiss Cheese, Sauerkraut, and Russian Dressing between two thick slices of Rye Bread. We’re 99.9% the Reuben is the best way to nurse your hangover of green beer on March 18th. 

Breakfast Hash

The beauty of a Breakfast Hash lies in the fridge. The Breakfast Hash is the ultimate leftover dish consisting of a medley of Veggies, Potatoes, Cheeses, Corned Beef, and Eggs your way. Throw it all in a skillet and watch the magic happen! Hot sauce optional. 

Potato and Corned Beef Chowder

We had you at Potato didn’t we? This hearty stew uses Vienna Beef Corned Beef, Cabbage, Potatoes, Chicken Broth, and Heavy Cream. Throw in a bit of diced Onions and Garlic, topped off with a variety of herbs, and this stew will warm you right up. 

Corned Beef Tacos with Cabbage Slaw

This dish proves that you can make tacos out of anything, even Corned Beef. Load up your favorite tortillas with your leftover Vienna Beef Corned Beef, and top it with the homemade slaw of red cabbage, jalapeno peppers, onions, mayo, mustard, and apple cider vinegar. Garnish with as many jalapeno slices as you can muster, and enjoy. 

Frankly, there are hundreds of ways to enjoy leftover Corned Beef. You might just catch us shamelessly digging into our fridge stash at 2am for a midnight snack. That’s just how good this flat, lean cut of brisket is. How are you enjoying it this holiday?
