Reuben Sandwich Recipe


Thousand Island Dressing:

• 1 cup mayonnaise
• 1 tablespoon chili sauce (for more taste) ½ cup sour cream
• 1 teaspoon minced pimiento
• 1 teaspoon minced scallion
• 2 tablespoons minced green bell pepper
• 2 hard-cooked eggs, peeled and chopped (optional)

The Sandwich:

• 2 slices dark rye bread
• 1 tablespoon butter, melted
• 2 thin slices of swiss cheese
• 4 (or more) slices of thin slices of Kosher-style corned beef brisket
• ¼ cup chilled drained sauerkraut
• 2 tablespoons Thousand Island Dressing (above)


Mix all the ingredients together in a small bowl; set aside

Brush one side of each slice of bread with melted butter. Lay, unbuttered-sides-up, side by side on the counter. Top each slice with cheese, then pile corned beef on one slice only

Mix sauerkraut with dressing and spread on corned beef.

Put sandwich together and grill both sides, pressing together with spatula, until cheese melts and sandwich is brown, about 2 minutes on each side. Serve at once.
