Reuben Sandwich

Circle B Kitchen


For each sandwich you will need...

2 slices of rye bread
several slices of corned beef
2 -6 slices of swiss cheese, depending on the thickness of each slice
Russian dressing (see recipe below)
sauerkraut
softened butter 

To assemble your sandwiches, spread one side of each piece of rye bread with softened butter.  Flip them over and top with the swiss cheese slices.  Spread both pieces with a good amount of Russian dressing.

Place the corned beef on one piece of bread and top that with some sauerkraut.  Place the meatless slice of bread on top of the sauerkraut.

Place the sandwich on a well-heated cast iron griddle or nonstick skillet.  When the first side is golden brown, flip the sandwich, reduce the heat a bit and place a metal bowl over the sandwich.  This will create a heated dome which will trap heat and help the cheese to melt more quickly.

When the bottom half is browned nicely and the cheese has melted, remove the sandwich from the pan, slice in half and serve while still warm.

Simple Russian Dressing
1/2 cup mayonnaise
1/4 cup catsup
3 tablespoons sweet pick relish

Combine the mayonnaise, catsup and relish.  This is also great on burgers and patty melts.
