Un-Corned Beef Reuben

3 out of 4 Forks
Serves: 1
Difficulty: Couldn’t Be Easier!
Prep Time: 5 Minutes
Cook Time: <5 Minutes (Ice box to plate in10 minutes or less or your sandwich is free!)

Un-Corned Beef Reuben Sandwich
2oz Left-over Un-Corned Beef (sliced to your preference)
1oz Swiss Cheese, low sodium
1/8c Sauerkraut
1 Tbsp LC, Thousand Island Dressing (recipe follows)
1 Tbsp Course-Grained Mustard
1 Tbsp Horseradish Sauce, optional
2 Revolution Rolls

Slather mustard on both rolls. Split one ounce of Swiss cheese between the two Rev Rolls. Split the corned beef between both rolls. Place the rolls under the broiler or in the toaster oven and let it broil till the toast command clicks off or until cheese melts – whichever comes first. Top with well-drained sauerkraut and finish with a glob of low carb Thousand Island or Russian dressing. I add horseradish sauce for extra goodness.

Now smush the two halves together and cut the sandwich in half. Serve with an ice box dill pickle and something yummy (oh heck-fire, go nuts and have it with broccoli if you want)! You’ll forget all about New York.

And the best news? This kind of reuben won’t put a dent in your carb bank, nor is it high fat for those of you watching your fat. Totally guilt-free yummiliciousness!

Thousand Island Dressing – Low Carb
Serves: 1
Difficulty: Couldn’t Be Easier!
Prep Time: 5 Minutes
Cook Time: <5 Minutes

1/2c Mayo (points for you if you made your own)*
2 Tbsp Reduced Sugar Ketchup
2 tsp Yellow Mustard
1 Tbsp Onion, grated
2 Tbsp Dill Relish (I used Vlassic)
½ tsp Granulated Garlic Powder
Kosher Salt and Pepper to taste
4-5 Drops Concentrated Liquid Splenda or a pinch of Stevia Glycerite Powder

Peel and grate about a tablespoon of onion so that you get not only the onion itself, but its juice as well. Add all other ingredients to the bowl. Mix well using a spoon. Taste and adjust seasoning. Dressing will keep for up to two weeks in a covered container.

*By the way, you can sub 1/4c Mayo and 1/4c Plain Yogurt for the 1/2c Mayo to make it even lower fat and lower in polyunsaturated fatty acids. Yogurt is a fermented food which is a plus for you if you aren’t sensitive to dairy.
