I made this and found it unpalatable. It was soggy, gooey, and tasted bad. It wasn't at all akin to a Reuben Sanwich. It went down the disposal.
Good recipe but better after a few changes. Soggy with bread on bottom so I put bread on top. Also I used Thousand Island dressing instead of Russian dressing. I also add 1 TBS. caraway seeds on top of the sauerkraut layer. My wife loved it.
I have made this recipe, found it somewhere before, and its delicious!!! I made it just as described, using dark rye. It was a really nice spin on an old favorite. About the only change I plan to make when I make it again is to use my own homemade dressing, I didn't care much for the bottled one I used.
I thought this was excellent. I will be making this more often. I did add some sour cream mixed with the sauerkraut. It turned out great.
I went to the deli and asked for 1 cm thick slices of corned beef and then cut them into cubes rather than strips. This tastes delicious!! I live by myself and I ate it for an entire week a couple months ago without getting tired of it. I found that it was difficult to fit everything in the casserole dish and ended up not being able to add all the cheese. It definitely needed all the cheese. I used 1,000 island dressing also. Yumm! Reviewing this makes me want to make it again.
What a wonderful taste and you can't get any easier than this! The only thing I would do next time is cut the meat into small pieces (no knife needed then). Really good served with cole slaw!
Having read the negative reviews about the soggy bread problem, I acquired a loaf of delicious marbled rye (I prefer the way it looks for the casserole) and had them slice it a little thicker than regular slices (about 1 1/2 times the size of a regular slice) and toasted them a little before cubing. Also, I drained my sauerkraut really well. It turned out absolutely amazing
Pretty good! We put sauerkraut on the bottom, then corned beef, then sauce, then bread (as per reviews about sogginess), then cheese. We also used thousand island dressing. Turned out yummy! Even the kids liked it. =)
I enjoyed this. It was simple and tasty, although the texture was a bit too soggy.... and I even baked it UNcovered to try to avoid that. I added onions on top of the sauerkraut to pick up the flavor a bit. It's worth making again for sure. Thanx for sharing!
