If that corned beef brisket you made is too large for your family to tackle in one sitting, we bring you many options for using the leftovers: soups, casseroles, hashes, and breakfast egg bakes that are convenient and delicious. If you also have leftover vegetables, you might be able to repurpose everything, from the cabbage to the carrots and potatoes. Nothing has to go to waste!
If you purposely want to have leftover sliced or diced corned beef, choose a flat cut brisket or corned eye of round roast. For looser, shreddable meat, choose the point cut.
