These sandwiches make a perfect way to add a touch of Irish flavor to your Saint Patrick’s Day dinner, or just a delicious addition to your weekly menu, any time of the year!  I make a traditional Reuben Sandwich that uses rye bread and Thousand Island or Russian Dressing. I usually get the corned beef sliced to order at the deli and prefer a bit of a thicker slice but any type of corned beef is great in this recipe!  The results are nothing short on mouth watering! I know you will love this recipe!

This makes a great option for a lunch to fuel you for the rest of the afternoon or an incredible addition to dinner! Chances are after trying this perfect Rueben Sandwich it will become a family favorite at your house too!

  1. Oh my… the best Rueben sandwich I’ve ever had was at Katz’s Deli in NY. It was amazing but I think this might possibly top it… I’ve always wanted to recreate it at home and now I know how!

  2. I can see why it’s one of your husbands favorite sandwiches! And I love the little pickle you put on top! :)
