Perfect, classic Reuben. In my book it's worth making a corned beef brisket (I like "Slow Cooked Corned Beef for Sandwiches," also from this site) just to make this sandwich! As others have noted, drain and RINSE the sauerkraut and heat it briefly so that it's good and hot by the time the sandwich is done. I used a marbled rye, which made this sandwich especially pretty. Whether you use deli corned beef or cook your own corned beef brisket, make sure the meat is tender! There's nothing worse with a Reuben sandwich than to take a bite and pull out a big hunk of tough meat, leaving the rest of the sandwich behind! (I've had a Reuben like that in a restaurant or two...)
