There’s nothing like an amazing Reuben Sandwich all yr spherical and particularly on St Patrick’s Day!
Slices of rye bread are topped with melted swiss cheese, tangy sauerkraut, dressing, and many sliced corned beef. It’s cooked in a skillet (grilled cheese model) till crisp and toasty!
I like to make Reuben sandwiches at dwelling, it’s one in every of my husband’s favourite sandwiches!
A Excellent Deli-Type Sandwich
A Reuben sandwich is a good way so as to add a contact of Irish inspiration to your Saint Patrick’s Day dinner, or only a scrumptious addition to your weekly menu, any time of the yr!
What’s a Reuben Sandwich? I make a conventional Reuben Sandwich with rye bread and Thousand Island Dressing. I usually get the corned beef sliced to order on the deli and ask for a little bit of a thicker slice.
Whereas the deli is nice for a fast meal, selfmade corned beef makes one of the best sandwich. Corned Beef in the Slow Cooker is fairly easy (skip the cabbage/veggies should you’d like) and the leftovers are nice for this recipe!
Components in a Reuben Sandwich
DRESSING: Thousand Island dressing is our favourite dressing for a Reuben sandwich. For slightly kick, attempt horseradish sauce as an alternative.
To make a fast Thousand Island, mix the next in a small bowl:
1/4 cup mayonnaise, 1 tablespoon every of ketchup and candy relish, 1/8 teaspoon of onion powder, & a touch of Worcestershire. Really easy!
Sauerkraut: I purchase canned or jarred. Squeeze the sauerkraut nicely so it doesn’t make the sandwich soggy.
Corned Beef: Retailer-bought, deli or leftover selfmade corned beef will all work. I particularly love this sandwich with thicker sliced leftover corned beef that has been warmed. Pastrami will be substituted.
Swiss Cheese: Place it on the underside when making the sandwiches so it melts nicely. Not a fan of Swiss? Strive cheddar, mozzarella, or any cheese you have got available!
How To Make A Reuben Sandwich
Making basic Reuben sandwiches is simple, a bit like making a grilled cheese sandwich.
- Butter one aspect of every slice of bread.
- Unfold dressing on all sides of the sandwich (on the within) and prime with a slice of swiss cheese, corned beef, and sauerkraut. Place butter aspect down in a skillet.
- Prepare dinner till bread slices are golden and revel in!
Serve with further dressing for dipping, a aspect of coleslaw, and, in fact, dill pickles.
PRO TIP: If you’re loading up your sandwich with plenty of meat or utilizing thick corned beef, I discover it finest to warmth the corned beef first. This ensures a sizzling sandwich with out the bread burning.
