Reuben Sandwich

I sometimes wonder if I'm German Jewish, because of my love of the Reuben Sandwich.

I looked up the origin of the Reuben Sandwich and tend to believe Arnold Reuben as the actual inventor of this delicious sandwich.

Reuben Sandwich

I made a really delicious Reuben Sandwich.


Since I didn't have RYE BREAD, I improvised with 1/4th slice of submarine wheat roll
Deli corned beef (I bought mine at Sam's)
swiss cheese (I recommend Castle Wood Baby Swiss Cheese)
Sauerkraut (recommend Vlasic brand - in a jar - never in can)
Sandwich sauce
Slices of Kosher pickles (recommend Vlasic brand)

Sandwich Sauce:

Add to a small bowl add:

1 cup mayonnaise
1/3 cup catsup
1/4 cup sweet pickle relish
A FEW sprinkles of Splenda or regular sugar (optional)
Mix well

Spread both top and bottom of the roll with the sauce
Add as many layers of swiss cheese as you want
Add as many layers of sliced corn beef as you want
Top with DRAINED sauerkraut
Micro wave just for a FEW seconds
You won't see the kosher pickle because I was out of them.

Note: I found rye bread at Alberton's and bought a small loaf that was quite expensive. I also bought a bag of rye flour, and some caraway seed, because a loaf will be much more less expensive by my making it myself.

Aw, yum, baby. I forgive for lacking the rye.

After finding rye bread, I made another Reuben Sandwich. Surprisingly, the one you see in the pic, which was made with the submarine wheat roll, tasted a million times better!

I hope you try making it with the wheat roll to see just how much tastier it is!

Yes, it was a total yum!

Re: Rye
Oh, I never get those ingredients together. We have like a single deli worth a crap in this town. Got a couple of poboy places to do it right, but I can never make one.

I would give that sandwich the loving it deserves. I would bite it, lick it, and swallow.

You hear that?

My stomach just roared, "Gimme dat beef!"

If I were to give myself stars, I'd give myself all the stars found in it's little box like container! This is some serious sandwich that after eating, you won't forget!

Oh, and I heard your stomach roar all the way here!
Double smooches!

I am definitely hungry now, trite as that may sound. Reubens are probably my favorite sandwich, and I'm going to try your recipe. Thank you! :)

Try it - you'll love it!
They have always been my favorite, also.

When you do make it, just be sure to add a few SPECKS of sugar to the sauce. I think the next time I make one, I'll place the swiss cheese on a plate and micor it to the point where it starts to get really soft, then I'll place in the sandwich and micro the whole thing to where everything gets warm.

I honestly feel you'll love it more than any you've bought ready made.

Next time I make it, perhaps I'll experiment by adding a few sprinkles of crushed caraway seed to the submarine wheat roll to get the taste of rye. Since I'm such a frugal (tight wad) person, I hated spending so much money on such a tiny loaf of rye bread from the deli.

You can make me a sandwich any old time. :D
Apr. 22nd, 2010 04:49 am (UTC)
The next one I make will be just for you! Oh, and I'll be sure to add a pickle! :o)

Wonderful. :)

That looks yummy. I wish I could try some!
Apr. 29th, 2010 12:34 am (UTC)
Love, not only do they look yummy, theye taste beyond yummy!

The Reuben is typically grilled...like grilled cheese. Try it...better than nuking.

I've always eaten Rueben's as you mentioned, but since I didn't have rye bread, I made them this way. Try it this way, and I think you'll like it as much as grilled!

I love Ruben's and that sandwich looks delightful.

It would probably be better with Ron's home made kraut

I had no idea that kraut could be homemade. I love adding swiss cheese and lots of sauerkraut to hotdogs, too.

I sure would love to have your recipe!

Sure been doing it for years. May I send you a pint fresh made last fall. Now this stuff is sour, not that vinegary stuff you get in the store.

Send me a good address and I will send you a pint immediately. The pleasure is mine sweetie.

I can send it with a recipie also
