Corned beef, Swiss cheese, sauerkraut and Russian or 1,000 Island dressing on rye, all grilled...the classic Reuben sandwich!

Origin of this classic vary...some say an Omaha grocer named Reuben K. invented the sandwich for consumption at his weekly poker games. Others claim it got started in the early 20th century in a NYC deli and was created for a famous actress as a post-performance snack.
