Instructions

Instructions are for 2 servings. Please modify as needed.

  1. Heat up butter in a skillet over medium-low heat.
  2. Add corned beef and fry carefully. Drain the sauerkraut and squeeze as much liquid as possible out of it. Distribute evenly in the pan.
  3. Place small dollops of mustard here and there in the sauerkraut. Add sliced Swiss cheese and heat until the cheese is melting. Cover the skillet with a lid to speed things up if you're in a hurry.

Tip!

Sub in pastrami, deli roast beef, sliced turkey or cooked brisket if you prefer. Muenster and mozzarella are mild substitutes for Swiss cheese.

    I can't tell from the picture... do you shred the corn beef before frying?

    Complete the Reuben experience by turning the mayo into Thousand Island dressing. Combine some pepper sauce, a couple drops of ketchup (just enough for coloring), pickle relish (make sure there is no hidden sugar), and salt. Stir well.

    Made this for dinner tonight. This is such a great idea. Me and my husband both loved it! Thanks for this recipe. We hardly missed the bread!

    I got sliced corn beef from the deli and then I cut it into strips. I wasn't really sure how to do the meat so I just did what seemed good. I cooked it on medium heat for a few minutes and then turned it to medium high for a few minutes until some pieces were darker brown. I turned it back to medium and stirred in the sauerkraut until it was heated. Dolloped some Dijon mustard and stirred it in then melted the cheese on top.

    Brilliant recipe and so simple!! Thanks!

    As a vegetarian, I substituted tempeh for the corn beef. It was really delicious!!!
