    I was so excited about this recipe, I had such high hopes...they all came crashing down when I tasted this... All you can taste is the sauerkraut! I can't understand why/how it received such smashing reviews! The other ingredients are all over powered by the cabbage. P.S. Cutting up the meat takes way more than 5 minutes. Very disappointed.

    So good, and easy to make. I did use chipped turkey breast instead of the corned beef. Also substituted Thousand Island dressing for the mayo. I suggest "Rye with Caraway Seeds" Triscuits instead of the bread. The bread tends to dry out so fast. A very popular snack for a get-together.

    I was so excited to find this recipe again. I made this recipe years back every New Year's Eve and it was a hit. Went online and low and behold there it was and I will make it this Christmas Eve and in the years to come. Tip: It gets greasey if made too far ahead, better fresh and I use chopped up Budding Corned Beef for sandwhiches in place of the cooked corned beef. Delish!
