This is a delicious way to make Reubens from your leftover Corned Beef and Cabbage! My DH likes it better than the original Reubens because it uses the leftover cabbage instead of sauerkraut (less "pickled" taste). I recommend reheating the corned beef and cabbage in the microwave or on the stove prior to assembly.
