Reuben Sandwich

Katerina | Diethood
This Reuben Sandwich uses leftover corned beef, tangy sauerkraut, melted Swiss cheese, and my signature creamy Russian Dressing to make the most delicious sandwich you've ever had.
Servings : 4 servings (Makes 2 whole sandwiches)
Prep Time 5 minutes
Cook Time 15 minutes
Total Time 25 minutes


For the Homemade Russian Dressing
  • 3 tablespoons mayonnaise
  • 2 tablespoons sour cream
  • tablespoons ketchup
  • 1 tablespoon pickle juice
  • 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
  • ½ tablespoon hot sauce, optional, but I recommend it
  • 1 teaspoon grated horseradish from a jar
  • salt and fresh ground pepper, to taste
For the Reuben Sandwich
  • 4 slices rye bread
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • cup Homemade Russian Dressing, you can also use Thousand Island Dressing
  • ½ pound thinly sliced corned beef
  • ½ cup sauerkraut, well drained
  • 8 thin slices Swiss cheese


  • Preheat oven broiler to HIGH.
  • Spread butter on one side of each slice of bread.
  • Place bread, buttered side up, on a baking sheet and toast under the broiler until golden brown.
  • Remove from oven; flip over the bread slices and spread remaining butter over each slice.
  • Set under the broiler and toast until golden brown. Watch it closely because it browns quickly.
  • Remove bread from oven and spread Russian dressing on each slice.
  • Add sauerkraut on two slices of bread.
  • Add sliced corned beef on the other two slices of bread.
  • Add Swiss cheese on top of each slice.
  • Set under the broiler for a couple minutes, or until cheese is melted.
  • Remove from oven and close sandwiches together.
  • Cut in half and serve.
