Homemade Reuben Sandwich
If I had to pick my favorite food in the whole world, it would have to be sandwiches. They really are the perfect food. You can put anything you want on a sandwich and I guarantee it will be delicious and satisfying. I have a stock pile of sandwich making supplies in my kitchen because every day is sandwich day (thank you Lilo and Stitch!). Yes, when it comes to sandwiches, Mr. Joey Tribiani and I are their biggest fans.
Now that I’ve established my love for these delicious delicacies, I can talk to you about my specific favorite sandwich. She is a tempting mistress, she is. Filled with delicious corned beef and sauerkraut that just brings your taste buds to life. That’s right: the Reuben. The Reuben sandwich has been my favorite sandwich for quite a few years now. It replaced turkey with tomato and mayonnaise on white bread. I love the feeling of freshly baked rye bread beneath my finger tips and the feeling I get right as I take that first bite. The best feature about the Reuben would have to be that it’s flavor tastes new even after you lick your fingers of that delicious Russian dressing.
The only problem with my Reuben love affair is that I live in Birmingham, Alabama. As wonderful as this city is, finding a place that serves a delicious and authentic Reuben sandwich for the low price that us college students can afford is close to impossible. And let’s face it, Arby’s Reuben isn’t such a great gal. Lucky for me, I’m a girl that never gives up hope. I found a bakery in Vestavia that makes the most amazing authentic German Reuben sandwich I’ve ever had…at the price of $8. Now, I understand that businesses need to make money but I refuse to pay more than $6 for a sandwich; no matter how delicious it may be. So, I took to my cooking routes and decided to go grocery shopping. I bought all the essentials needed for my Reuben making extravaganza and I smiled all the way home. Here’s my easy recipe for a delicious Reuben sandwich that you can make any time you want it and you don’t have to pay $8.
Easy Homemade Reuben Sandwich
What You’ll Need
Thousand Island Dressing
Seedless Jewish rye bread (sliced)
Swiss cheese slices
1 can of sauerkraut (drained)
1/2 a pound of thinly sliced corned beef
First step is take a skillet and place it on top of your stove on medium heat. Take your rye bread slice and spread the Thousand Island Dressing on top. Next, top with cheese, sauerkraut and your corned beef and another thin layer of dressing. Place your other slice on top of the corned beef. Next, take a slice of butter and place in your skillet and then take your sandwich and put it on the melted better. What you want to do it make the bread a little toasted like grilled cheese bread and you want to melt your cheese so it oozes all over your corned beef and sauerkraut. When both sides are brown and your cheese is gooey, take your sandwich and slice it in half and let everything ooze together. Eat with a nice tall glass of iced tea and you have yourself a delicious Reuben!
