Corned Beef Sandwiches

When it comes to a Corned Beef Sandwich, this one definitely has my own unique personal twist. If you want to make this more like a traditional Rueben sandwich, then just swap out the coleslaw for sauerkraut. I am not a big sauerkraut fan, my husband loves it but I think it tastes rotten. So I swap it out for coleslaw and some sliced pickles so that I can actually enjoy this yummy sandwich. If you want to go with my version, my Corned Beef Sandwiches are especially good with our Coleslaw recipe HERE and Homemade Russian Dressing recipe HERE. The creamy, savory kick of this mayonnaise-based dressing is the perfect way to doll up a sandwich. It gives your taste buds a little something extra to play with while you’re enjoying the tender meat and crisp, flavorful coleslaw.

What is Russian Dressing?

Russian Dressing made with mayonnaise, chili sauce, red wine vinegar, sugar, garlic powder, paprika, Worcestershire sauce, salt, pepper, and dill pickles or dill pickle relish. It is similar to Thousand Island Dressing. It is also comparable to the In-N-Out “spread”. You’ll love this creamy and savory mayonnaise-based sauce with a spicy kick. It is most well-known as a dressing on a Classic Reuben Sandwich or Corned Beef Sandwich.

Ironically, according to several sources, including CNN, the Russian Dressing recipe originated in New Hampshire, not Russia. A grocer named James E. Colburn invented the dressing. He created it as a spread and sold it to retailers and hotels throughout the United States. Colbern liked to use the dressing on a Russian salad, hence giving it the name “Russian” dressing.
