This recipe for Reuben sandwiches is one that we used to make at our deli in New Hampshire. It is an outstanding meal with corned beef, Swiss cheese, sauerkraut and Russian dressing.
You can make this with homemade corned beef or store bought. In fact, this is a great sandwich to make with left-over corned beef.
You will also need some sauerkraut. That is also available at the store but making it a home is superbly easy. All you need is cabbage, vinegar and peppercorns.
Finally you will need Russian dressing. This too is very easy to make at home if you want. Whatever makes you happy.
Don’t think that you can’t make this is you do not have Rye bread available. I made this video in Bolivia where I couldn’t find it and it came out perfect as well.
Here is what you are going to need for this delicious recipe for Reuben sandwiches:
Makes 1 sandwich
2 slices rye bread
1 TBS butter
2 tsp. Russian dressing
4 oz. corned beef
2 TBS sauerkraut
1 slice Swiss cheese
Butter one side of the bread and place it – butter side down – in a large skillet or griddle. Smear each piece of bread with about 1 tsp. of dressing.
Heat the corned beef and form it in the shape of the bread. Top with the sauerkraut and cheese. Use a bread loaf pan – or a grill dome – to cover the corned beef. Cook for about 4 to 5 minutes, until it is warm and the cheese melts.
Using a spatula, scoop the corned beef and place it on one of the pieces of bread. Cover it with the other piece – grilled side up.
Cut the sandwich in two with a sharp bread knife. Serve and enjoy!
