As is this sandwich is fairly good, but with some simple tips it can be great. You should drain/rinse the sauerkraut, and warm it up either in a skillet, or in the microwave. (If you want the kraut to be much more prominent tasting dont rinse it, but still warm it up). Also warm up the corned beef. This ensures that the entire sandwich is hot all the way through without worrying the breaad will burn. Also use deli style corned beef sliced very very thinly, and put on as much as you feel is right. Slicing it thicker makes it slip out of the sandwich when you bite into it. Shaving the meat makes it easier to eat without losing the meat. Reubens were invented here in Omaha where I live, and the standard is to use Thousand Island (or Russian) dressing..but I digress. Use a high quality dressing. I use 2 slices of baby swiss-one on each side of the sandwich. Assemble in this order: dressing, cheese, sauerkraut, meat, another slice of cheese, and on the 2nd slice of bread another layer of dressing (use as much or as little dressing as you prefer). Use butter, and cook until browned and crispy. Excellent!
