Just made it this morning for the third year in a row. I use a half-pound of deli corned beef; I tell the guy behind the counter to slice it in one half-pound chunk and then I slice it to my preference before cooking. I love how quick, easy, and delicious this is!

This has a good, comfort food flavor. I found it to be very salty when I made it. I wonder if there's a low-sodium canned corned beef.
