What You'll Need
  • I. Corned Beef/Pastrami
  • 1 loaf of pumpernickel bread
  • Havarti Cheese
  • 2 packages pastrami deli meat (I bought mine at Trader Joe's)
  • 2 Lbs. corned beef (raw)
  • 5 sprigs of thyme
  • II. Slaw
  • 1 small head of green cabbage (shredded)
  • 1 red onion (sliced thinly)
  • 2 green apples (sliced thinly)
  • ¼ cup apple cider vinegar
  • 3 TBS. olive oil
  • 1 tsp. paprika
  • 1 clove of garlic (I minced mine using a micro-plane zester)
  • 1 tsp. horseradish
  1. Preheat oven to 325. In a roasting dish, place the corned beef fat side up and season generously with salt and pepper. Cover with an inch or so of water and add the thyme sprigs. Allow to cook for about 1 hour and 20 minutes or until tender. Allow to rest for 20 minutes before slicing (against the grain).
  2. To make the slaw simply add the cabbage, red onion, and green apple into a medium sized bowl. In a smaller bowl, combine the vinegar, oil, paprika, garlic and horseradish.
  3. Simply combine ingredients as you see fit!
  4. Note: the mustard aioli I mentioned in the post is a product I found at Trader Joe's!
