    Here's a quick, easy and delicious new spin on the traditional Reuben sandwich. To Serve: Nix using the broiler below for your living room tailgaters. Remove the meat from the Crock-pot and let cool slightly. Strain the juices, reserving 1/4 cup for the sauce, place about 1/2 - 1 cup back into crock. This will keep the sliced meat moist and tender. Slice the corned beef, place back in crock-pot still set on low to keep warm. Serve with the sauce, cheese and rolls/bread slices on the side. Ba-Dah- Bing -- All Done!
