Recipe Thursday-Reuben Sandwiches

Posted on May 10th, 2012 | Posted in Recipes, Sandwich

I forgot about Reuben Sandwiches for a while, but when I moved back into the Lancaster area I was pleasantly reminded that I love them, and they are a great sandwich to make at home!  So last week when a bread vendor paid Hometown a visit and dropped off some rye bread to sample, immediately I knew that I would make Reuben sandwiches. I have made them a variety of ways, but this recipe has taken the lead. I use our top of the line Freda corned beef and Jarlsberg cheese rather than a domestic Swiss. Jarlsberg’s flavor is mild, buttery, nutty and slightly sweet and adds more flavor complexity to the Reuben sandwich.

Reuben Sandwiches

Yield 4 Sandwiches
Sandwich ingredients:

2 tablespoon butter, softened (880000)
8 slices rye bread (991735)
8 slices Jarlsberg (CWNO060)
3/4 lb corned beef, thinly sliced (FRD660-2)
1/2 lb sauerkraut (KSL900)
1/4 cup Russian Dressing

Russian Dressing:

Combine the following ingredients. Makes one-half cup.

1/3 cup mayonnaise (992170)
1 1/2 tablespoon ketchup (992300)
1 1/2 teaspoons prepared horseradish (991053)
1/2 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce (991668)
Salt, to taste (991861)
Freshly ground black pepper, to taste (CQP071)


Butter one side of each slice of bread, and place the slices buttered-side down on a large piece of wax paper on a flat surface. Top four of them with a slice of Jarlsberg cheese, and then divide half of the corned beef among them, saving the other half for the top of the sandwiches.

Using paper towels and a fine mesh strainer, squeeze out excess moisture from the sauerkraut. Divide the sauerkraut among the sandwiches, and top each with one tablespoon of Russian dressing. Add another layer of corned beef and a second slice of Jarlsberg cheese to each sandwich. Top with the remaining bread slices; buttered side facing out.

Heat oven to 200 degrees to keep sandwiches warm. Preheat a griddle or frying pan to medium heat. Cook the sandwiches on one side until the bread is golden brown. Use a heavy object to press the sandwiches while they cook. I have used heavy skillets or my ceramic crock pot insert. Use a spatula to carefully flip the sandwiches over and finish cooking on the second side. Keep warm in oven until ready to serve. Cut the sandwiches in half before serving.

Serve with a side of coleslaw.
