Saturday Sandwich 59: The Reuben

We've had this sandwich before a few years ago but we made it with pastrami because we couldn't get salt/corned beef. So this time we made some salt beef.

Ingredients: Salt beef, thousand island dressing, sauerkraut, gruyere, rye bread and butter.

Take two slices of bread and butter them. Place them butter side down into a hot frying pan to toast. Spread with thousand island dressing then add the sauerkraut, cheese and beef.

Top with another slice of bread spread with the dressing and press down.

Flip over to toast the top slice of bread. Press down with something heavy like a pan until the bread is crispy.

Slice in half and eat!

This is a really delicious sandwich. The salt beef on it own was fantastic. Really soft and salty, so impossible not to eat while I was breaking it up after cooking it. The tang of the sauerkraut and the smooth, sharp tasting cheese go really well together. The previous sandwich we made had a different sauce to thousand island dressing which I think I preferred but it gave some moisture to the toasted rye bread at least. Very filling and satisfying sandwich.

Ratings: JD - 4, Emma - 4
