This hot American sandwich is truly a classic recipe with corned beef, melted Swiss cheese, sauerkraut, and creamy Russian or Thousand Island dressing all on fresh rye bread. You can make this into a Rachel Sandwich by substituting the pastrami for the corned beef, and serve both of them at your next luncheon. ​

Ingredients

  • 1 Tablespoon butter
  • 4 slices rye bread
  • 8 Ounces corned beef
  • 2 slices Swiss cheese
  • 1/2 Cup sauerkraut, drained
  • 1/4 Cup thousand island dressing

Directions

Preheat a large skillet on medium heat. Add the butter to the pan. While the butter is melting, spread the side of the bread you are not going to grill with thousand island dressing. Place the bread slices in the pan. Top two pieces with the corned beef, and then the cheese (both evenly divided). Top with the remaining two slices of bread, and grill evenly, about 5 minutes per side. 

Reuben Sandwich Shopping Tip

Most cattle are fed a diet of grass until they are sent to a feedlot – where they are finished on corn. When possible, choose beef from cattle that are “100% grass fed” - it will be more expensive, but better for your health.

Reuben Sandwich Cooking Tip

The method used to cook beef is dependent on the cut. Cuts that are more tender, like filet mignon, should be cooked for a relatively short amount of time over high heat by grilling or sautéing. While less tender cuts, like brisket and short ribs, should be cooked for a longer time with lower heat by braising or stewing.
