No. That’s not a misspelling. You might think that I meant a Reuben Sandwich. No. A Reuben is made with corned beef and a Rachel is made with pastrami. Everything else is the same. You must use a Russian Dressing [PDF format], this is our recipe, and Thousand Island is a poor substitute. (There is also a copy of the Russian Dressing recipe in the Recipe File above.) Rye bread, we use only Acme Bake Shop Rye. This is a full bodied, full flavored rye, not a “rye swirl” bread that is a substitution for the “real thing”. Boars Head Brand Lacy Swiss Cheese and Pastrami. Kosher dill pickle. Sauerkraut is also a must. Again, we use our homemade kraut. I use a panini grill (George Foreman) to grill these sandwiches. The Stella Artois is an added bonus! Cheers and Gut essen! Left-Click to see enlarged.
