I have never been a fan of sauerkraut so I usually make this as a kit.for his lunch at work. Let me tell ya, this one makes all the other guys on the job jealous! I put all of the ingredients in separate bags or containers so he can make it nice and fresh.
You can use the sliced corned beef from the deli, but its so much better with the shredded corned beef. I like to buy a few corned beef roasts and "can" them or you can freeze it already cooked, for faster preparation. I like to "can" them in pint jars which ends up making enough for my husband to take to work. Stay tuned for "how to's" on canning meats. I'll give you all the details in future posts.
2 slices of rye bread ( he likes a dark rye or marbled rye)
1 cup cooked and shredded corned beef
2 tablespoons of 1000 island dressing
about 1/2 cup sauerkraut
2 slices of swiss cheese
To toast the bread: spread the outside of each slice with butter and grill on a skillet until golden brown. Spread the inside of each slice with dressing and then add corned beef, sauerkraut and cheese. Enjoy!
