@Gass it's easy. Pick up some corned beef from a deli; I like mine cut thin almost shaved. Some Swiss cheese; again thin cut. Some Rye bread; I like to use a pumpernickel/rye blend. Sauerkraut in a JAR not a can; the canned stuff is horrible. A classic Reuben calls for Russian dressing. If you cannot find it 1000 island dressing will work equally as well. Get a saute pan add a little butter and corned beef with some Sauerkraut. When it's heated through move to the side of the pan and add a little more butter and 2 slices of the rye bread. Put the Swiss cheese on the rye and wait till it melts. Add the corned beef/Sauerkraut mixture to one slice of bread and put dressing over it then add the other slice. Plate and enjoy!

Just finished making a reuben according to this video. Very, very good!!! It is a hit in our family. I agree wholeheartedly with Dehietyi: Sauerkraut from a jar is much better... I made one change: I put the butter in the cast iron skillet, let it melt, and then "granny toasted" the sandwich on both sides with butter.
