Reuben Sandwich

  in Main Dishes, Recipes

rye bread or other crusty bread, 2 slices
soft butter
leftover corned beef, sliced
Swiss cheese
Russian dressing

Russian Dressing:
1/3 cup mayonnaise
1 1/2 tablespoons ketchup
2 tablespoons sweet pickle relish
1/2 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
Salt, to taste
Freshly ground black pepper, to taste

  1. Start a cast iron pan heating over medium low heat. Mix together the dressing ingredients.
  2. Butter one side of each slice of bread. Lay the bread with buttered sides down. Layer some slices of corned beef on one piece of bread. Pile some sauerkraut generously over the corned beef. Add a slice or two of Swiss cheese over the sauerkraut. Smear the top piece of bread (the unbuttered side) liberally with Russian dressing, maybe 2 tablespoons, and place on top of cheese.
  3. Cook the sandwich on one side until bread is browned. Carefully flip and cook the other side until nicely browned and the cheese is melted. Eat immediately!
