Quantity of Corned Beef per person?

I am having a St. Pats Party. Before it's cooked, how much corned beef should you figure per person? Those suckers shrink up so much...I want to make sure I prepare enough.

  1. Whatever leftovers go into hash and sandwiches. Having too much corned beef is an enviable problem in my book so I say figure on the high side.

      I agree - figure at least one pound uncooked weight per person and pray for leftovers. Mmm-mmm, corned beef hash!
