  • 2 tablespoons unsalted Butter
  • 2 slices Rye Bread
  • 6 ounces lean corned beef
  • 1/2 cup drained fresh sauerkraut
  • 4 slices Swiss cheese


  • Melt the butter on a hot grill or in a large skillet. Grill both slices of bread on one side. At the same time, grill the corned beef in one stack and the sauerkraut in another. Cook until both are heated through. Turn over one slice of the bread on the grill. Stack on the corned beef, top with the sauerkraut, then the cheese, and the second slice of bread, grill side down. Continue grill the Reuben until it's hot and melted, turning the sandwich over once. This usually takes place in 5 to 7 minutes. Serve immediately, hot off the grill.

    FYI – Junior’s is in both locations…Brooklyn is the original location then branched out to Manhattan.

    Most restaurants in these parts that serve what they call a Reuben slather them with Thousand Island dressing. Yuck! I have them make mine with a shmear of spicy mustard since Russian dressing is a rarity here.

    There is also a Junior’s in Manhattan! It was so good that I ate there 3 times while I was in the city. The matzo ball soup, the brisket sandwich and the hamburger!…So good!
