Recently, I found a love of Hillshire Farm’s Deli Select, Ultra thin, Pastrami! Now, I’ve always loved Corned beef, and traditionally that is what you make a reuben with, but when your in a pinch with a taste for a reuben and it’s not close to St. Patrick’s day.. This works amazing!
You will need;
~2 Tbsp butter, softened
~8 slices rye bread
~8 slices Swiss cheese
~3/4 lb Pastrami, thinly sliced
~1/2 lb sauerkraut
~1/4 cup yellow mustard or Russian Dressing
First, Butter one side of four slices of bread
Place the slices buttered-side down on a large piece of wax paper on a flat surface. Top with mustard or dressing.
Using paper towels, squeeze out excess moisture from the sauerkraut.
Now, take a half slice of swiss, then the meat, then swiss, then sauerkraut, then swiss.. (The cheese is the glue that sticks it together!) Top with another piece of bread that is buttered on the outside with the mustard or dressing on the inside. Place in a Preheated a griddle or frying pan on medium heat.
Cook the sandwiches on one side until the bread is golden brown. Use a spatula to carefully flip the sandwiches over and finish cooking on the second side. Cut the sandwiches in half before serving.
You will not regret switching out the corned beef!
Now, if you want to Russian dressing on it instead, here is a recipe for it.
Combine the following ingredients. Makes one-half cup.
~1/3 cup mayonnaise
~1 1/2 Tbsp ketchup
~1 1/2 teaspoons prepared horseradish
~1/2 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
~Salt, to taste
~Freshly ground black pepper, to taste
