The Rueben is my favorite sandwich to order at a good deli. One winter my wife and I went to New York City. She spent most of the week on Canal Street haggling over fake purses. I spent my time at the Carnegie Deli trying to conquer their towering Rueben. The problem is, in most of the country a good deli is a dinosaur, headed for extinction. Fortunately, you can make an amazing Rueben at home, and better yet, thanks to me, you can do it on your grill. I have no reason for putting the word “Deluxe” in the name of this recipe, it just seemed to fit. So, Ladies and Gentlemen, I present to you, the Grilled Ruben Deluxe.

8 Slices of Rye Bread
¼ cup of butter
2 cups of drained sauerkraut
1 cup of 1000 Island dressing
8 Slices of Swiss cheese
And a pound of Sliced Corned Beef

Now before we get started, some of you are thinking about making this recipe. And right about now your wondering how the recipe would turn out if you used different bread, instead of rye. Maybe you’re thinking a sourdough or just plain white bread. Stop right now, close this cookbook, and slap yourself… come back when you buy a loaf of rye bread. For those of you, who do have rye bread at the ready, please continue.

Directions:
Directions:
Preheat your grill for medium, direct heat. Butter one side of each piece of Rye Bread, and place the bread, buttered side down, onto your grill. Quickly top each piece with Swiss cheese. Now on 4 of the pieces of bread, pile a few slices of corned beef. Smack some sauerkraut on top of the beef and close the sandwich with the other piece of bread.
Grill the sandwich for 2 minutes per side, please flip carefully. You should use 2 spatulas, or use your spatula and you BBQ forks together to ensure a perfect flip. If you’re not ready for the sandwiches yet, you can leave them on the grill, off of the direct heat for a couple on minutes, just don’t burn the bread.
Serve this with some 1000 Island Dressing, potato salad or coleslaw, and a kosher pickle.
