Some tasty corned beef dishes to help you celebrate
Meaty issue: Get ready for corned beef, which symbolizes St. Patrick's Day in the United States. At Irish restaurants and bars, corned beef will be the menu star. (Andre J. Jackson/Detroit Free Press/MCT)
12 ounces thinly sliced corned beef
6 slices baby Swiss cheese, cut in quarters
2 cups finely shredded cabbage
6 tablespoons packaged French-fried onions
Prepare the dinner rolls according to package directions. Slice the dinner rolls in half.
Preheat the broiler.
In a small bowl, mix the mayonnaise, ketchup, capers and gherkin. Save some of the mayonnaise mixture to serve on the side if you like. Arrange the bottom rolls on a broiler pan. Spread with some of the mayonnaise mixture and top with slices of corned beef, folding them over. Top with 2 quarter slices of cheese. Broil until the cheese melts.
Remove from the oven, top with shredded cabbage and French-fried onions and the top of the roll. Serve immediately with extra dressing on the side.
