Blarney and Corned Beef Sandwiches

Hi Everyone,
Hope y'all are having a great Friday, and looking forward to the weekend and St.Patrick's Day.

Come on in the kitchen. I'm making corned beef sandwiches.  
Are you hungry?

The pub sign on the hutch is from a party we had a couple of years ago. I got out the green and gold necklaces to wear..., grab a necklace or two, and I'll make you a corned beef sandwich. Let me show you what they look like...

...I made these the other day for lunch, and took a quick pic of them to show you.

They're easy to make using deli corned beef, cheese, cabbage, and a little onion . 
I used Swiss cheese on these, but a nice Irish cheddar would also be good.
This time I sauteed the cabbage instead of making slaw. 

Here's the "recipe". I hesitate to use that word since I rarely have a recipe for a lot of dishes...I just cook. :)

So,here's how I made them....

Thinly slice cabbage and a little green onion, saute them in a little butter, and season with sea salt. 
Add a couple of tablespoons of water, or Guinness :) . 
Put a lid on the pan and steam it for about 5 minutes, or until the cabbage and onion is tender. 

Take the lid off the pan, and continue cooking until the liquid has evaporated. 

While that's cooking, I make a Thousand Island Dressing.
Mix about a half  cup mayonnaise and a slightly less amount of catsup. Add a teaspoon of sweet pickle relish, and mix. 

When the cabbage is done, assemble the sandwich...

I used seedless rye and spread the Thousand Island Dressing on the bread. Put one slice of cheese on each piece of bread. Stack on the corned beef, and top with the cooked cabbage and the other slice of bread and cheese.

Grill on a griddle with butter, or on a panini press, and enjoy!

Happy St. Patrick's Day! Glad y'all stopped by.

That sandwich looks awful good to me, Babs! I really like your Blarney pub sign- how come the Irish are known for that, anyway? LOL Hope we'll have some. Leftover corned beef from our boiled,dinner so I can create some sandwiches of our own. Erin Go Braugh!

Your St. Patrick's Day hutch is so pretty. The day after St. Patrick's Day is as yummy as the day after Thanksgiving! I love corned-beef sandwiches. Yours looked delicious!

That sure looks better than those "green grits" I had this morning. I love corned beef but I am the only one in the family who does. This is a fantastic way for me to get my fix. I am pinning this to my favorite recipes.
Love the cabbage plates.
Happy St Patrick's Day, Ginger
