If you’re making your corned beef at home, simply follow the directions on your package. We made ours the day before and stored it in the fridge. Pro tip: pressure cook your corned beef before putting it in the oven, it will be fall apart tender when you’re all done!
Preheat your cast iron skillet, then add in your corned beef and crisp it up for about 5-10 minutes. You will render out some nice fat. After the corned beef is crisped up to your liking, remove it from the cast iron and set it aside. Leave the rendered fat in the pan. There might be some small bits of corned beef and that’s also fine.
Add in your sauerkraut and your Dijon mustard. Cook in the pan until it’s warmed up to your liking. Add a bit of fresh ground black pepper if you like.
Next, add back in your corned beef and let it cook for another 2-3 minutes.
Layer the meat and sauerkraut with Swiss cheese.
Place the skillet under the broiler for 5-10 minutes, until the cheese is melted to your liking. Top with some homemade Low Carb Thousand Island Dressing. We find it’s best if you make the dressing the day before and store it in the fridge so the flavors can meld together.
