YES, I am going to go on, and on, about cooking sous vide style. Absolutely loved making my own homemade corned beef out of sous vide brisket. Click here to check out the recipe. I used the tender, juicy corned beef to create The Best Two-Cheese Rueben Sandwich. Skip the Thousand Island dressing. Honestly, homemade Russian dressing is the way to go. Elevate your sandwich even more with a beautiful marble rye. Alternatively, sourdough would be an excellent substitute.

Be GENEROUS WITH THE MEAT! This recipe will yield three sandwiches.

HOW TO MAKE THE BEST TWO-CHEESE RUEBEN SANDWICH

Of course, if you do not own a sous vide, or if you just do not want to take the time to prepare the brisket on your own, feel free to purchase corned beef at your local deli. For me, I was just so super excited to make, and use my own. Heat up a cast iron pan to medium. If you still not own a cast iron pan, you need to get one in your kitchen. Click here for the one I use most often. Butter one side of each slice of marble rye. Place bread, butter side down in the heated pan. Top with the Gruyère slices.

Layer a generous amount of corned beef (about a third of a pound or so, per sandwich), onto the Gruyère cheese. Place the rinsed and drained sauerkraut onto the corned beef. Top with the baby Swiss cheese slices.

Spread the Russian dressing on the inside of the remaining three slices of buttered marble rye. Place on top of the sandwiches, butter side up.

These sandwiches are quite thick. So, you need to ensure that the cheese melts, perfectly. Brown the bottom on the one side first. Cover with a lid for just a minute, or so. Flip. Brown the other side.

Slice. Serve immediately with chips, Homemade French Fries or Homemade Cajun Potato Chips! ENJOY The Best Two-Cheese Rueben Sandwich you have ever made!

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. He is known as one of the best skate sharpeners in the world!

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!
