Open-Faced Reuben Sandwich

There is nothing I love more then leftovers! After my Corned Beef & Cabbage dinner, I used the remaining beef to make the classic St. Patty’s Day dish: The Reuben. A New York deli and diner treat, I’ve created a few rules on how this traditional sandwich comes to be, in your own kitchen!

Oh yes, don’t forget the Guinness! To properly pour, empty half of the can into a pint, let rest for 1-2 minutes, and slowly pour remainder (a perfect pint should take 119.5 seconds to pour!)
