Top-Rated Reuben Sandwich

9 ingredients

The Reuben is the epitome of the great deli sandwiches... every ingredient is important as well as how it's prepared. This is how we make our own Reuben, and we've been told it's the best in the Northwest. It takes making your own ingredients in several cases, but we certainly feel it's worth the trip, as have our fans.

  • 2 slices rye bread (our personal favorite is dill rye.)
  • 2 slices swiss cheese (it depends on the maker, and doesn't necessarily need to be expensive or imported.)
  • 4 ounces corned beef, pre-heated (get the best you can... which in our opinion is incredible corned beef)
  • 1 ounce sauerkraut, drained (we like ab's version of homemade sauerkraut.)
  • 1 tablespoon russian salad dressing (the original was russian, but we like louie dressing (for seafood salads or reuben sandwiches))
  • 2 tablespoons butter, softened
