This is a Reuben recipe you’re going to want to see.
There are very few things you can do to improve an iconic sandwich like the Reuben. The combination of corned beef, Swiss cheese, sauerkraut and Thousand Island dressing nestled between two slices or rye bread has been a staple of Jewish delis for decades.But what if you deep-fried that sandwich in cheap hipster beer? Nick Chipman over at Dude Foods did just that and has cleverly dubbed it the Pabst Blue Reuben.
“I was super drunk out in Vegas at the time and said something along the lines of ‘What if I took an entire Reuben sandwich, dipped it in Pabst beer batter and deep fried it?’” Chapman wrote in his blog. He published the recipe at FoodBeast, where you can check it out yourself.
The idea and execution is actually pretty simple: Create a beer batter with flour and three cups of PBR beer, then turn on the deep-fryer to 375 degrees F, add vegetable oil, and dip your Reuben sandwich into the beer batter and fry until golden-brown.
