- Pickled Cabbage:
While the meat is cooking, prepare the cabbage. Remove outer layer of cabbage leave and the cabbage core.

- Shred cabbage finely with a mandolin slicer or very sharp knife, place shredded cabbage in a large glass bowl.

- Heat butter in a frypan on medium heat. Add sliced mushrooms and sauté until golden brown.
- Sprinkle with fresh thyme leaves, salt and pepper and set aside.
- Toast the bread and spread each slice with wholegrain mustard. Place 1-2 tablespoons of sautéed mushrooms on top of the mustard, then layer with several slices of corned beef.
