Prep Time: 10 minutes 
Cook Time: 8 hrs and 25 minutes 
Total Time: 8 hrs 35 minutes 
Total Servings: 12 Sliders 


For the Corned Beef:

  • 3 lb corned beef with spice packet 
  • 1 1/2 c beef broth
 For the Reuben Sliders:

  •  12 Hawaiian rolls or slider rolls  
  • 6-8 slices cheese
  • 2 c sauerkraut excess liquid drained  
  • 1/3 c Thousand Island or Russian Dressing  
  • 2 T Butter 


  1. Add the corned beef brisket to your crock pot, fat side up. Pour the broth over top. Cover the meat with spices included in spice packet. Cook on low for about 8-10 hours or until fork tender and easily slices or shreds with a fork.
  2. Remove the cooked meat from the slow cooker and allow to rest for 5 minutes before slicing. Slice thin, about ¼ inch thickness give or take and set aside for slider assembly.
Assembling Sliders:

  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F. Spray a 9x13 inch pan or large baking dish with oil or line a sheet pan with parchment. Slice rolls in half separating top from bottom. Place the bottom layer of the rolls in the baking dish. Top with sliced corned beef. ( You likely won't use all of the corned beef unless you want to.)
  2. Top the beef with sauerkraut that has been squeezed and drained of excess liquid. Layer the cheese on top. Spread the dressing onto the inside of the top layer of the rolls and place it on top of the cheese. Brush the tops of the rolls with the melted butter.
  3. Cover the pan with foil and bake for about 25 minutes or until the cheese has melted and the tops of the rolls are lightly browned. Remove from the oven and cool several minutes before slicing and serving. Place a toothpick in each slider to help keep them together.
