what kind of cheese is on a rueben sandwich? it has been so long since i ate one, i forgot. last one i ate was on marbled rye, at arby's. that was like 2 years ago. yesterday i cooked up a corned beef brisket; one of those you buy at the store. i bought a point, bcause i wanted it shredded. i cooked it all evening in the crock-pot, and pulled it last night. sample tasted good.

I like Swiss cheese on mine, and I think that is the norm. May God have mercy on my soul if I'm wrong, my G-Ma(german) would skin me alive!

  • mayonnaise or Thousand Island dressing
  • corned beef
  • sauerkraut
  • Swiss cheese

I like Provolone don't care for swiss - sorry guys! It's an in-bread thing! and I like mayo and Dijon mustard - maybe that's a Reubini?

I like mine that way too Chris. When I eat it like that I use mustard. Spicy mustard is my favorite. I guess that really just makes it a corned beef on rye if you don't use the saurkraut and thousand island dressing.

The Rachel is the Reuben's cousin....

Smoked turkey
cole slaw
1000 island
cheese
on rye, toasted or grilled

with FF's and a pickle!

This is a "Georgia" Reuben, and how the deli's in the southeast make them.

when you make your sandwich, you mix up eggs,milk, salt,
dip them in the mixture like you would french toast and you have a Monte Cristo

Actually if you want a true reuben it isn't thousand island dressing either .
it's russian

Rye bread
swiss cheese
kraut
corned beef
finished with russian dressing

the thousand island for some unknown reason took the place of the russian
here is a russian recipe

4 C Oil
4 C Catsup
½ C Mayonnaise
¾ C Sugar
¾ C White vinegar
¾ C Lemon juice
2 T Paprika
2 T Salt
½ T Pepper
might have to scale it down a bit we used this in a resturant i worked

Loyd -

I'm going to have to try that - never had Russian dressing before it looks real good!

thousand island is similar but has relish and chunkies in it
russian is smooth and more like a red french dressing

The classic Reuben sandwich is Rye Bread with thousand Island dressing, corned beef, Swiss cheese, sauerkraut and mustard ad lib. Beware however this combination is delicious but NOT KOSHER, you will never find this sandwich in a Jewish Deli. Meat and Milk products are not to be used together. What the hell its one of my favorites too.

So what do you call a reuben if it's made w/ pastrami, a reubenetti? We always make ours with pastrami, and we butter the bread lightly and sprinkle a little parmagiano reggiano before we grill the bread. Talk about good crunchies. For a grilled turkey and swiss, we sprinkle a little fresh chopped rosemary on with the parmesan.

Look what you guys have done to me, and it's only 9:30 a.m.


Tim

I betcha anybody that tries the rosemary and parmesan thing gives me a rep power point for it.
