One of the reasons it is so hard to cook interesting things for 2 people is that you end up with TONS of leftovers. It’s hard to make any good cuts of meat, like pork shoulder or pot roast, without having to eat the same thing for days at a time. Sometimes you can freeze things and that’s nice, but sometimes it’s just nice to make it into something else.
We made corned beef for St. Patty’s day and then had a lot leftover, so we made it into reuben sandwiches. I didn’t grow up eating corned beef or reubens until I met my husband. He is a huge reuben fan. Whenever we go out to eat and he doesn’t know what to order, he always will default to a reuben. I mean, who can blame him. They’re delicious and so many perfect things on one sandwich.
Next time corned beef goes on sale (because lets be honest, I would never buy it if it wasn’t on sale), pick it up and save some for these delicious sandwiches!
