Cook's Notes

Don't forget to season with salt and pepper as you layer your sandwich. Some deli meats can be salty, so always taste-test first.

    This is perfect for a filling, quick mid-week dinner! To make it like the famous Katz's Reuben however, the meat is Pastrami and the condiment is Russian dressing (home made) NOT spicy brown mustard. Deeeeeeeelicious!
