You won’t believe how mouthwateringly delicious a simple can of corned beef can be until you try this sandwich! If you’re wondering what to make with canned corned beef, look no further. This sandwich is quick, easy, versatile, and absolutely delicious. Join me as we dive into the world of canned corned beef sandwiches!

Let’s Talk Bread!

When it comes to creating the perfect corned beef sandwich, I highly recommend using Ciabatta bread. Its chewy texture and perfect crispiness create a delightful contrast to the tender corned beef. While I’ve used Ciabatta panini rolls in this recipe, you can also use regular Ciabatta rolls or even slices from a loaf.

What Cheese to Use?

To pay homage to the classic Reuben sandwich, I love toasting some Swiss cheese onto the Ciabatta. The melted, gooey cheese adds an extra layer of flavor to this already delectable creation.

Process shots: Place rolls on a baking tray (photo 1), slice in half (photo 2), brush two with oil and top two with cheese (photo 3), grill/broil (photo 4).

Crafting the Perfect Corned Beef Sandwich

Here’s my recommended lineup of sandwich fillings:

  • Horseradish Mayo: The pairing of horseradish and beef is simply divine. I like to mix in some mayo to create a creamier sauce (check out the homemade recipe in the recipe card below). However, if you prefer a bolder kick, a thin spread of horseradish or even mustard will do the trick.
  • Caramelized Onions: These sweet and savory onions provide the ideal balance to the saltiness of the corned beef. You can use store-bought caramelized onions or make your own (see the homemade recipe in the recipe card below). If you’re short on time, frying up some onions will work just fine.
  • Rocket/Arugula: Add some peppery goodness to complement the flavors of the corned beef.
  • Tomatoes: Opt for high-quality vine-ripened tomatoes to avoid overpowering the sandwich with sourness.

Serving Suggestions for Your Corned Beef Sandwich

To complete your corned beef sandwich experience, here are a few recommendations:

  • Crisp/Chip Recommendation: Ready Salted chips (or crisps) work wonderfully with this sandwich. Their perfectly balanced flavors enhance the overall taste sensation. You can even sneak a few chips into the sandwich itself!
  • Side Recommendation: Potato Salad makes an excellent accompaniment to this sandwich, providing a satisfying balance to the flavors.
