Ask most people what to do with corned beef and rye and they will tell you to make a Reuben. The history of the Reuben is just as varied as those that like to eat it. I have never made a Reuben sandwich before today, why should I, I live in New York City I can get an excellent Reuben quicker than you can say shenanigans.
Today I made a Reuben sandwich especially for my blog buddy Beth and you start out with the star of the show -Corned Beef.
But wait, there's a twist, I didnt have any swiss so I used some Irish Cheddar from KerryGold. (they sent me a coupon for free samples - always pluggin' away what can I say)
The Russian dressing was deconstructed and mixed piece by piece into the the slaw, the flavor came out the same its just I took a different road to get there and it didnt have to look all orangey/ketchupy like Russian dressing looks. (read between the lines, I didnt make Russian dressing)
The sandwich was toasty, ooey gooey and good, mark my word.
