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.

Finally, someone who understands that mustard is so much better than Russian dressing on a Reuben! Loved it. I make a vegetarian version for my husband using thinly sliced tofu browned in olive oil and seasoned with tamari or soy sauce.

Much prefer mustard to thousand island . Either corned beef or pastrami will do. Just Love Katz's Deli. Best sandwiches and do miss them. (no longer live in NYC) Thanks for this delicious sandwich suggestion.

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!
