Crock Pot Reuben Sandwiches

With St. Patrick's Day coming up I thought it would be fun to make a meal that is festive! When I was pregnant with Max, almost 10 years ago, I was visiting my aunt Kim and her church was having a St. Patrick's Day party. We ate corned beef and cabbage and Reuben sandwiches, all of which I had never tasted before. I thought they were pretty tasty and since then we've made some type of corned beef every St. Patrick's Day. 

These sandwiches are easy to make but they feel like deluxe deli sandwiches. 

Start with a corned beef roast. Place the entire roast, with the juices and spice packet, cover with water and turn the crock pot on high. Let it cook for 4-6 hours or until fork-tender. 

Find a good loaf of Pumpernickel or Rye bread and slice it up. 

Top your sandwich with the Corned Beef, Thousand Island Dressing, Creamy Horseradish, Sauerkraut, and Swiss Cheese.
