Griddle-Cooked Reuben Sandwich Welcome to your culinary journey! I’m excited to share with you this delicious and easy Griddle-Cooked Reuben Sandwich recipe. This classic corned beef sandwich is packed full of juicy meat, creamy Thousand Island dressing and marbled rye, toasted to perfection. We’ll take a step-by-step approach to create this classic deli sandwich that will make you feel like you’re at the favorite lunch spot around the corner.
If you’d like to shake things up, you can use pastrami or even a vegan alternative, such as jackfruit and vegan cheese, to make a variety of flavor profiles and appeal to those who prefer a different style of lunch.
Here’s what you’ll need:
– 1 lb. of thick-sliced corned beef
– 1 cup thousand island dressing
– 2 tablespoons butter
– 8 slices of rye marble bread
First, make sure your corned beef has been cooked according to the package instructions. In a bowl, lightly mix together the Thousand Island dressing and butter. Heat a skillet or griddle over medium heat. Spread the butter-dressing mixture onto each slice of bread, then place one slice on the griddle. Top with the corned beef and second slice of bread, buttered-side up.
Let the Reuben sandwich sit for about 3 minutes, or until the underside of the bread has turned golden brown and crisp. Carefully flip the sandwich over to the same side until the cheese has melted and the Sandwich is completely toasted.
Finally, serve the delicious Griddle-Cooked Reuben Sandwich with a side of chips, pickles, and a cold beverage of your choice.
A helpful hack to spruce up your sandwich is to add a layer of sauerkraut to your Reuben. The traditional preparation of this sandwich calls for a bit of special tartness that sauerkraut can provide. If you’ve got a bit of extra time, you can also add a bit of onion and grated cheese before toasting it for a bit of extra flavor.
For a lighter option, skip the butter and Thousand Island Dressing and instead opt for a light smearing of Dijon mustard for a tart and crisp bite. You can also try adding some extra crunch with thinly sliced pickles or slivers of fresh onion.
For extra indulgence, you can add a fried egg for a bit of extra protein.
This classic deli sandwich will be sure to satisfy even the hungriest appetite. Enjoy!
