Reuben Sandwich is a type of warm deli corned beef sandwich with sauerkraut and cheese. There have been many Reuben sandwich variations throughout the years, and this is one of the basic and simple recipes around.
I really enjoy having Reuben sandwich and liked how the taste of tender corned combined with the sauerkraut and cheese. The dressing (such as mayonnaise or thousand island) is a plus and makes the sandwich more pleasurable. I enjoy eating this while it is hot of the griddle. I also like to dip this sometimes with onion soup. I used cured corned beef to make this sandwich. I got the corned beef raw, so I had to boil and simmer it for about 3 hours to make it tender and sandwich worthy. All the wait was OK because I ended up with a great tasting Reuben Sandwich that everyone else loved.
