This was a great way to use up leftover Corned Beef. I found the recipe in Taste of Home
1/2 cup chopped onion
1/2 cup sliced celery
2 tablespoons butter
1 cup chicken broth
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
2 tablespoons cornstarch
2 tablespoons water
3/4 cup sauerkraut, rinsed and drained
2 cups half-and-half cream
2 cups chopped cooked corned beef
1 cup (4 ounces) shredded Swiss cheese
Salt and pepper to taste
Rye croutons, optional
In a large saucepan, saute onion and celery in butter until tender. Add broth and baking soda. Combine cornstarch and water until smooth; gradually add to pan. Bring to a boil; cook and stir for 2 minutes or until thickened.
Reduce heat. Add sauerkraut, cream and corned beef; simmer and stir for 15 minutes. Add cheese; heat until melted. Add salt and pepper. Garnish with croutons if desired. Yield: about 6 servings.
