Looking for a unique way to enjoy a reuben sandwich? These Rueben Egg Rolls have all of the flavor of a traditional reuben sandwich, with loads of crunch. Homemade Russian dressing for dipping sends this recipe over the top. These tasty packages are perfect served as an appetizer, or for party guests.Additionally, they are super easy to prepare.Leftovers (if there are any), will keep for up to three days in the fridge. This recipe is also perfect to use up any leftover corned beef from your St. Patrick’s day celebration!

Naturally, I created a short video on TikTok, making these fabulous Reuben Egg Rolls, click here to view. If you have not yet signed up for this social media platform, use my code 5SSIS800K0H06 to create an account.


Of course, you do not have to get as fancy as I did and make your own corned beef. However, if you want to test your culinary skills, click here for my recipe. This will require the use of a brisket and precision cooker, as I used the sous vide technique. What is sous vide? It is a French technique of cooking certain foods over a long period of time at a low temperature. Cook times and temperature settings will vary depending upon what you are preparing. In this case, the brisket would be placed in a vacuum pouch or tightly sealed bag. The bag is then placed in a warm bath water that is regulated by the precision cooker. For my recipe, allow up to 10 hours.

Thankfully, most briskets that are available in your local grocery stores, are packaged with a pickling spice. You will not believe how tender the corned beef is using the sous vide technique.

Again, feel free to drop by the deli counter and purchase the corned beef. It is definitely a time-saver and will work just as well in this recipe for Reuben Egg Rolls.

Be sure to dice the corned beef, as opposed to shredding. Additionally, rinse and squeeze out as much water as you can from the sauerkraut. Although, I have listed to use either Gruyère or Swiss cheese, I actually used a combination of shredded Gruyère and Jarslberg. Believe me, Swiss cheese will do just fine, and is also a cost savings.

DO NOT, and I repeat, DO NOT use Vegan egg roll wrappers. The texture is not the same as traditional wrappers as they tend to break apart during filling and wrapping.

These deep fried crispy Reuben Egg Rolls are filled with the traditional ingredients of the famous grilled reuben sandwich. Serve with homemade Russian dressing, or substitute with Thousand Island.



  • 1 lb corned beef, diced
  • 1 C Gruyère or Swiss Cheese
  • 3/4 sauerkraut, rinsed and drained
  • pinch of caraway seeds, optional
  • 12 to 14 egg roll wrappers
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • oil for frying


  • 1/2 C mayo
  • 3 TBLS ketchup
  • 1 tsp Sriracha
  • 1/2 shallot, grated
  • 1 TBLS horseradish, ground
  • 1 tsp paprika
  • dash of kosher salt
  • dash of black pepper



Heat up enough oil in a cast iron pan to cover the egg rolls. Combine the diced corned beef, cheese, caraway seeds (optional) and sauerkraut into a bowl. Mix to combine.

Lay one egg roll wrapper on a flat surface with one corner nearest to you. Place a spoonful of the mixture on the corner of the wrapper. Roll to tuck in corner. Tightly fold in each side. Roll just to the edge. Brush the edge with the egg wash to seal.

Continue rolling and filling the egg roll wrappers until all of the mixture is used up. Be sure to place a damp towel over the egg rolls as you finish rolling. This recipe will yield approximately 12 to 14 egg rolls.

Place the egg rolls into the hot oil, in batches. You will notice that you may have to “hold” the egg rolls with tongs to brown up each side. I highly suggest frying only four at a time.

Serve with homemade Russian dressing, or substitute with Thousand Island.



  • Dice, as opposed to shred, the corned beef
  • Thoroughly rinse and squeeze all of the water out of the sauerkraut
  • Avoid using Vegan egg roll wrappers
  • You may have to manipulate the egg rolls as they are frying to brown all sides


I am more than just recipes. I love fashion and style too! Most importantly, I love my Family (my Hubby and my Fur Babies). My Husband (aka my “Kitchen Bitch”) means the world to me. He’s pretty damn cool too. Not only is he one of the nicest guys you will ever meet, he also has had a lengthy career in professional hockey. Not only winning two Stanley Cups with the Pittsburgh Penguins in the early ’90’s, but most recently winning the Calder Cup with the Charlotte Checkers, amongst many other accolades. If you live in Charlotte and play hockey, or have a family member who plays, be sure to contact him!

Our life has changed dramatically in the past few years with the passing of our two goldendoodles, Vegas and Viva. We were lucky enough to have Vegas for five years (totally wish it was longer). Most recently, losing our Viva to a brain tumor in July of 2020. We welcomed our mini goldendoodle 7, almost seven years ago. We just added the amazing Hazel! Of course, I am always posting tons and tons of photos! Be sure to check out my recipe for Pet Bone Broth!
