WHAT IS A REUBEN SANDWICH?
A Reuben sandwich is made with corned beef/silverside, Swiss cheese, sauerkraut and Russian dressing, between slices of rye bread. It’s grilled until the bread is crispy and the cheese melts.
To make your own, make sure you use bread that suits your way of eating, such as my recipe for low carb, gluten free Keto Rye Waffle Bread. You have the option to serve the sandwich hot or cold but my preference is to serve it hot, with the cheese melting over the meat. Top the beef with sauerkraut and drizzle with your dressing,
WHY IS IT CALLED RUSSIAN DRESSING?
Russian Dressing was believed to have originated in the US in the early 1900’s. It supposedly got it’s name as it used caviar as an ingredient, not because it came from Russia. Today, the saltiness of the caviar is substituted by adding a dash of Worcestershire sauce.
KETO REUBEN RUSSIAN DRESSING AND THOUSAND ISLAND DRESSING
You may notice a little similarity between Keto Reuben Russian Dressing and Thousand Island Dressing, as both recipes use similar ingredients. The main difference is that the Russian dressing has a little more of a spicy flavor due to the addition of chili sauce and horseradish. So if you are looking for a Thousand Island Dressing with a little kick, this recipe is the ideal substitute.
