Tips & Variations

No special items needed.



I have never had a restaurant made Rueben sandwich, but if they taste as good as this Steak and Mushroom Rueben I can see why they are so popular! Other then needing to sub the shitakes made as posted. Made a delicious sandwich, freezing the rest of the steak/mushrooms using my new Cabelo Professional vacuum sealer which keeps it as fresh as the day you make it!. Looking forward to another delicious rueben in the weeks to come!
