5 Ingredient Dish: Triple Decker Corned Beef Special

The perfect sandwich for St. Patrick's Day!

By Charlotte Linde February 19, 2019

Each month we share a meal made with 5 ingredients or less to help you spend less time in the kitchen and more time with your family! 

This month, we created the Triple Decker Corned Beef Special, one of my family's favorites that is requested every year for lunch on St. Patrick's Day. Perhaps not a traditional "lucky" food, but one that is extremely delicious and made with just five ingredients! Plus, it's easy to make this corned beef sandwich ahead of time, wrap up and put in the cooler before you head to the parade... or consume as a snack for us big kids after a little celebrating with "Shamrock the Leprechaun." 

Triple Decker Corned Beef Special


  • Thinly sliced corned beef
  • Thinly sliced Swiss cheese
  • Marble rye sandwich bread
  • Thousand Island dressing
  • Your favorite prepared coleslaw

Optional: I like to add a pinch of caraway seeds and fennel seeds to my coleslaw. It really compliments every element of the sandwich. 


  • Layer in this order: bread, dressing, meat, cheese, meat, coleslaw, dressing, bread. Repeat again, and finish with the last piece of bread.
  • Slice in half and serve with a dill pickle.

We hope you enjoy this quick and delicious sandwich on St. Patrick's Day -- or any day!
