A Better Reuben Sandwich

READY IN: 20mins
Recipe by Karen From Colorado

This is the very best way to use up left over corned beef or a great dinner using deli corned beef slices.

This is a fantastic Reuben. My hubby and I ate this two days in a row. We aren't big fans of corned beef so we substituted pastrami. The sauce is what really makes this great! I will always make Reubens with this sauce in the future. Thank you!
