Sue, your sandwich was really filling and delicious...better than any famous deli or pub could make for me! But at 71.4 grams of fat I had to make a few changes...low fat thousand island... benecol to butter the bread...2 oz. of corned beef instead of 4oz...1 slice of deli swiss divided into 2 pieces. If it tasted this good with all the lower fat changes...I can only imagine what it tastes like fully loaded! I also appreciated your clear instructions on how to assemble the sandwich. I served the sandwiches with red seedless table grapes...never got to sit down...too many requests for more!
Sue I have never made my own Reuben sandwich and this was perfect! My daughter never had a Reuben sandwich and loved it. Thank you very much for the recipe. I made it exactly as written. My sister had given me a bunch of corn beef and it being St. Patrick's day I thought of Reuben sandwiches and couldn't of picked a better recipe.
Another great recipe, Sue! I made these exactly as stated, and MAN! Awesome lunch for me, indeed! Thanks, Sue!
Wow! What a wonderful tasting sandwich. I made as instructed using caraway seeds and using Thousand Isalnd Dressing#394540 for the dressing...delicious. Definately a recipe to put in my Favorites of 2010 and use when we buy corn beef to cook up. Thank you Sue Lau for a wonderful recipe. Made for Think Pink Cancer Awareness tag game 2010.
OK Sue, so I'm all about the "layering" to make any kind of perfect sandwich~~so you had me sold on that! Delicious! I wanted to use sauerkraut with caraway seeds, but couldn't find it, and my DH forgot to get it, but that would be the final touch to perfection. I used both pastrami & lean corned beef as the lean corned beef was $12 a lb. Thanks for posting. This is a splurge meal that I'll use once a month!
I love Reubens, they are my favorite sandwich--and this is a a good one! I did make one change, I made up the sandwiches and broiled them under the broiler as I was making a lot of them for lunch. These are an awesome football Sunday sandwich! Delicious, the perfect Reuben! Thanks, Sue!
First time making Reuben's myself, using leftover corned beef from St. Patrick's day. YUM!
Liked especially the caraway or juniper berry addition in this classic.
Hands down, the best reuben I have ever made. I used homemade Rye Buttermilk Bread which is amazing. Also used homemade Thousand Island Dressing which was outstanding. I simmered my sauerkraut with a few slices of apple to take away the bite. I then went with both juniper berries and caraway seeds. Hubby and I shared one HUGE sandwich. So good!!!
Oh, boy, did I ever enjoy this sandwich! One of the best Reuben's I've ever had. In fact, I think I'll go and make another one! Thnx for sharing your recipe, Sue Lau. Made for the Voracious Vagabonds for ZWT6.
