This old-school sauerkraut casserole recipe was submitted to my family's cookbook by my Oma Menyes. It's the epitome of German cooking.

Soon after it was invented by Bernard Schimmel, the Reuben won the National Sandwich Idea Contest in 1956. Now, nearly 60 years later, the combination of corned beef, sauerkraut, Swiss cheese, and Russian dressing is still a deli favorite. It's definitely mine. Whenever I'm lucky enough to eat at a classic New York City deli for lunch, a Reuben is my go-to order — but I always swap out the corned beef for pastrami.As much as I love the sandwich, though, I've never once made it at home. The lengthy cooking methods for both corned beef and pastrami completely contradict my sandwich ideal: a quick, no-fuss lunch or an easy weeknight dinner.This recipe solves the problem. Changing the meat once again, I sub out pastrami for an all-beef, char-grilled hot dog, which I top with all the best parts of a Reuben: melted Swiss, hot sauerkraut, and tangy-sweet Russian dressing.

This hot American sandwich is truly a classic recipe with corned beef, melted Swiss cheese, sauerkraut, and creamy Russian or Thousand Island dressing all on fresh rye bread. You can make this into a Rachel Sandwich by substituting the pastrami for the corned beef, and serve both of them at your next luncheon. ​

Sauerkraut goes well with pork and is a traditional accompaniment to pork chops specifically. This recipe uses sauerkraut juice instead of sauerkraut for a tasty twist. This recipe is courtesy of Biotta Juices.
