Recipe Notes:

  • To reduce the moisture content: Sauerkraut can be quite juicy, and if added to the sandwich without draining, it can make the bread soggy. Draining the sauerkraut helps to reduce its moisture content and prevent the bread from getting too moist.
  • To drain the sauerkraut, simply place it in a fine-mesh strainer or colander and let it sit for a few minutes. You can also squeeze out any excess liquid using your hands or a paper towel. By draining the sauerkraut, you can ensure that your Reuben sandwich is perfectly balanced in flavor and texture.
What type of meat is used in a reuben sandwich?

Corn beef is the most common meat used in a Reuben sandwich, but you can also use pastrami, turkey, or chicken. You can get this in your local deli. I always ask for it shaved.

Can I use a different cheese other than swiss?

While Swiss cheese is the traditional choice for a Reuben sandwich, you can use other types of cheese such as Havarti, or gouda.

What type of dressing is used in a reuben sandwich?

Thousand Island dressing is the most common dressing used in a Reuben sandwich, but you can also use Russian or French dressing.

Can I make this garbage bread without sauerkraut?

Yes, you can make a Reuben sandwich without sauerkraut, but it will have a different taste and texture. You can use coleslaw, pickles, or even lettuce as a substitute.

    Just curious, why sugar? I love the taste of Reubens sandwiches and would certainly not entertain sugar on one. Thanks.

    1. After testing the recipe several times, this just added a perfect touch to the crust.
