  • 1/2 pound potatoes
  • Kosher salt
  • Freshly ground black pepper
  • 3/4 cup shredded green cabbage
  • 3 tablespoons mayonnaise
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons ketchup
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons apple cider vinegar

  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter

How to make this recipe

  1. In a medium saucepan, cover the potatoes with salted water and bring to a boil. Boil until the potatoes are tender, about 20 minutes.

  2. Meanwhile, in a bowl, stir together the cabbage, mayonnaise, ketchup, vinegar, shallot and dill and season to taste with salt and pepper.

  3. When the potatoes are cool enough to handle, peel them and cut into chunks. Toss the potatoes with the cabbage salad in the bowl.

  4. Make 2 sandwiches with the bread, corned beef, potato-cabbage salad, and cheese.

  5. In a large heavy skillet, heat the butter over medium low heat until hot. Add the sandwiches, pressing down and turning once, and cook, covered, until the bread is golden and the cheese is melted, about 6 minutes total. Serve.
