Cook Once, Eat Twice:
Leftovers taste great piled onto a hoagie roll; make Philly cheese steaks, or serve them French-dip style with the extra sauce!
*Be sure to use fresh beef brisket instead of a "corned" beef brisket. Corned beef brisket has been cured in seasoned brine, which won't work for this dish.
