My Favorite Reuben Sandwich Recipe

It’s a sandwich in the most classic sense of sandwiches. But it is so much more than that. It’s grilled and cheesy plus crunchy and gooey. Pass the napkins.

It’s a sandwich in the classical sense of sandwiches. But it is so much more than that.

It’s grilled. It’s cheesy. It’s crunchy and gooey all at the same time. It begs to be dipped into matzo ball soup, and in our family, it is.

And it’s probably the only sandwich I honestly, seriously crave.

I bet you know that feeling. That gut-wrenching, I DON’T CARE IF I’M ON A DIET, mouth-watering-when-you-think-about-it CRAVING. For the love of God, just give me a bite!

And more napkins. Lots more napkins.

I became a reuben aficionado in 4th grade or so. That’s about the time my mom and I started going on shopping dates. We would drive to the big city of Salt Lake to window shop where I’d try to convince her to buy me an iron-on-Farrah Fawcett-emblazoned t-shirt, and she’d try to convince me to wear culottes. Annnnnnd, they’re back. Ugh.

After shopping we always made time for lunch. I think that secretly that shopping was just an excuse to lunch. We most always ended up at The Pub, normally for adults only, but because I was with mom, I got in too.

That’s where I had my first Reuben. It was life-altering and spoiled me for any other sandwich eclipsing that meaty, sauerkraut bite between two slices of rye bread. Others would solidly stand forever in the shadows of it’s sandwich greatness.

So when it comes time for the St. Patrick’s Day and the opportunity to break out the slow cooker to make my favorite slow cooker corned beef, I ALWAYS plan on sandwiches after.

Yes, I’ll even gyp family members on their serving of corned beef if I see we’re running low on leftovers for sandwich fixins’.

They always thank me later.
