SANDWICH: Corned Beef Rubens Roll

SANDWICH: Corned Beef Rubens Roll


A Rubens is the iconic Jewish sandwich.

Made world famous by New York deli, Katz’s the Rubens is piles of thinly sliced, cold corned beef with very few other ingredients – usually just a little Swiss cheese and Russian dressing. It’s one of those sandwiches that you can eat at any time of day and I see it frequently on Melbourne breakfast menus. 

It’s also a perfect leftovers meal. Transform your leftovers corned beef by pitching it inside a warm seeded roll and adding your favourite sandwich fillings. You don’t have to stick to the Rubens if you have other bits and bobs to use up. Below are some more corned beef sandwich ideas.
