Corned Beef Cabbage Slaw Sandwich is not an ordinary sandwich!
Leftover Corned Beef? What was I thinking? I bought the biggest corned beef brisket that I could find, and there are only two of us?
Well, I did it on purpose. I only cook corned beef once a year and don’t know why. It makes the best leftovers.
We really look forward to corned beef and the leftovers are a delicious benefit. My mother-in-law always bought a few extra when they went on sale and stuck them in the freezer.

I’ve got to do that this year too so we can make more of these sandwiches which are slathered with a mild brown sugar mustard sauce that just seeps into this sandwich and guarantees that every bite is going to be flavorful. It’s topped with a creamy caraway slaw that is smooth and adds another layer of flavor binding everything together.
