Rueben Sandwich

I've made Reuben Sandwiches for years - it was easy enough using my pressure cooker, but not everyone has a pressure cooker.  So - I decided to work out how to cook corned beef in the oven.  Turns out - the oven method has more flavor.  Here we go -

 1 - Corned Beef Roast (Flat is leaner - Point is tastier but fattier)  I'm using a flat

1/2 - White Onion Large Dice

4  - Ribs Celery Large Dice

3-4 - Garlic Cloves - Smashed

2-3 - Bay Leaves

1 Tsp - Coriander Seed

1 Tsp - Mustard Seed

Spice and herb packet that comes with corned beef

1 - Cup Water

Optional - 2 Carrots Large Dice - I didn't have any carrots -so....

Place the vegys, herbs and spices in pan.

My roast was not quite fork tender after 3 hours.

 Allow this to start to cool before placing into the refrigerator.  It's easier to trim the fat and slice the corned beef when its cooled.

Make your Reuben.

I use any kind of rye bread that looks good, sauerkraut (Squeeze Juice Out), whole grain mustard, and I grill them in butter.  Might as well - this ain't no health food.
