deli sliced corned beef
Thousand Island dressing
I followed the recipe pretty closely but used some reviewers suggestions. I drained the sourkraut but didn't rinse it, because we like the tangy taste of the sourkraut. I buttered rye bread slices on one side and spread Thousand Island dressing on the other side. On the dressing side I placed a slice of swiss cheese, sliced Pastrami from the deli and then topped with sourkraut. I cooked them on my George Foreman grill until the cheese was melted and the bread was nice and toasted. They were delicious! I only gave the four star rating because the sourkraut in the middle wasn't very warm. Next time I make these I will warm the sourkraut in the microwave first and maybe add another slice of swiss too! If you like Rueben sandwiches you will love this one!
pretty good just something missing - maybe it's the just the 1000 island dressing i used - i just felt like the whole sandwich lacked flavor - maybe there needs to be some additional seasoning added or make your own 1000 island
Great sandwich. The only change I made was to heat the sauerkraut in the microwave for 20 seconds before adding to the sandwich. I like my sandwich warmed all the way through. Thanks.
These were great. I used George Foreman grill, which was easy and quick. I don’t like soggy bread, so I put the dressing and sauerkraut between the meat and cheese. I also only used one slice of cheese per sandwich.
A good mustard is the way to make a Reuben. Down in south Alabama we did not start hearing about this thousand island business until about 10 years ago.
So good, but grilling each side on medium heat for 15 minutes each?! The bread would have been charred! Mine were perfectly browned at about 5-6 minutes per side. I would recommend keeping a good eye on your bread and toast it to your liking. Great recipe.
Hubby and I love this sandwich. I like to use the sweeter "bavarian style" sauerkraut with the caraway seeds. Somtimes I change it up and use mustard instead of thousand island dressing.
Great sandwich! The classics never die! This was so good and so easy to make. If you use good quality ingredients you'll end up with a wonderful sandwich. I used "Thousand Island Dressing II" from this site. Perfect for a quick lunch - YUM!
