Great Alternative for St. Patrick’s Day Dinner

We love to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day at our house, but don’t love the corned beef and cabbage dinner that is traditional.  Instead, we make a grilled sandwich with all the flavor of corned beef but not of the hassle of the cabbage.

Corned Beef and Sauerkraut

Grilled Corned Beef Sandwiches

two sliced of bread for each sandwich (used a good crusty bread)

shaved corned beef

sauerkraut, well-drained

provolone cheese

butter, (about one tablespoon per sandwich)

2 cloves of garlic, minced

Make the sandwich:   slice of bread, provolone cheese, sauerkraut, corned beef, provolone cheese, slice of bread.

Using a heavy bottom skillet, melt the butter  on medium high head and add a small bit of garlic.  Carefully place the sandwich in the skillet with the melted butter.  Allow to toast for a few minutes then flip over (you may need to add a bit more butter).  Cover and continue cooking until the cheese has melted and it is hot all the way through.  About 5 minutes.  Watch it so it doesn’t burn.  Serve immediately.

NOTE:  These are also great with a Panini press.
