This is one of my all time favorite sandwiches! When I go out for lunch, this is usually what I would order.

My mother used to make this sandwich whenever she made corned beef... This was her favorite sandwich too!

You can make with leftover corned beef, deli corned beef, or even the cheap corned beef packages. It is all good!

My grandchildren ask to make this a couple times a month, and we make variations because we love to Play With Our Food! ox

Colleen's directions for this classic deli-style Reuben sandwich are easy to follow and the outcome is one yummy sandwich. We used a good quality deli sliced corned beef and Swiss for testing. The grainy rye bread is perfect with the tangy sauerkraut and sweet Thousand Island dressing. Corned beef and melted Swiss cheese is a perfect combo. The whole sandwich is a perfect marriage of flavors. If you have leftover corned beef, this Reuben sandwich is a great way to use it. Test Kitchen Avatar The Test Kitchen
