Rye Bread Reuben

And in this corner we have the Reuben! Another sandwich that I’v been wanting to try for years! Went a bit unconventional and added some pickled red onions for color and because I thought it’d compliment the Sauerkraut. I think the Reuben has a more balanced flavor. The slight sweetness from the Russian Dressing makes all the difference! Like the Cubano, I made this grilled sandwich with Mayo instead of butter.

Reuben

Russian Dressing
1/4 C Mayonnaise
1/8 C Ketchup
1/2 tsp Horseradish
1/8 tsp hot sauce; I used Frank’s
1/4 tsp Worcestershire Sauce
Dash of Smoked Paprika
Small pinch of salt

1. Combine all ingredients; chill.

Reuben Sandwich
2 slices Marbled Rye Bread
2 Tbsp Mayonnaise
4 Slices of Baby Swiss Cheese
2/3 lb fresh sliced Corned Beef
1/2 C Sauerkraut; drained
1/4 C pickled red onion
All of the prepared Russian Dressing or 1/3 C store bought.

1. Spread mayo over both sides of each bread slice.
2. Layer 2 slices of Baby Swiss, Corned Beef, Sauerkraut, pickled Onion, Russian Dressing, remaining slices of Baby Swiss.
3. Top with other slice of bread and add to cast iron skillet. Weigh down with another skillet and fry over medium heat for 5 minutes per side; or until cheese is melted and bread is golden and crisp.
