Reuben Sandwich

 

You don’t have to wait for St. Patrick’s Day to make the BEST Reuben Sandwich ever!  

This best Reuben Sandwich is a must in your regular meal rotation, because it’s so delicious. 

Start with lots of tender corned beef stuffed in between thick slices of marbled rye bread.

Generously spoon on the quick to make homemade crisp slaw; which compliments the corned beef amazingly. 

Then top it all off with a Thousand Island dressing that you make yourself in hardly any time at all.  This sauce is better than anything you can purchase, seriously it’s fabulous. 

The combination of layers creates one of the most extraordinary sandwiches you’ll ever eat.   

In the Reuben you can use slow cooked corn beef, and the link is HERE , or  you can use deli pastrami to make it even easier. Either way, this sandwich will satisfy even the heartiest appetite.

It’s an excellent choice in sandwich to take on an outing, a picnic, or to make ahead for a busy day because it’s a crowd- pleaser, and your family will ask for it often.
