Corned Beef & Brat Reuben Sandwiches
You will need:
- Brats – Your favorite kind
- Corned Beef
- Swiss Cheese
- Thousand Island Dressing (a yellow or brown mustard is also great)
- Hoagie Rolls
Corned Beef can be purchased pre-cooked and sliced from the deli or cook your own corned beef brisket. My favorite is oven baked for about 2-3 hours (depending on weight). I apply a rub of brown sugar and then pour a can of Guinness Stout into the bottom of the roasting pan (I don’t use a roasting rack). Slice your Corned Beef to your preferred thickness (I like a little less than one ¼”).
Grill your Brats according to instructions on package. Put your cooked Corned Beef slices on the grill when the Brats have about 1-2 minutes of grill time left.
When your Brats are finished slice them length-wise and set them back on the grill. Place your Corned Beef on top of the Brat and top it all off with a slice of Swiss Cheese. Leave on grill just long enough to melt the cheese. Transfer your Brat, Corned Beef and Cheese combo to a Hoagie Roll. Finish off your sandwich with Sauerkraut and Thousand Island Dressing.
It should go without saying that this is NOT a healthy sandwich. You probably shouldn’t have this every week of the football season!
