So the moral of the story is, if you're traveling with Obama and he offers you half of his sandwich, don't eat it until he's done with his half, and then see if he'd like the other half of the sandwich. And then just eat your potato chips in the back of the bus, silently weeping to yourself.

I heard that Obozo found out that there was Russian dressing on that Reuben so he surrendered to the sandwich so now the sandwich is President and Obama has to wear a T-Shirt that says "Where's the Beef" on the front and says "In the Shower" on the back.

He said it was so big, he gave half of it away. But then it was REALLY good, so he wanted his half back. But he couldn't get it back because the lady already ate it (because it was so good) so he stole her pickle.

If your like your sandwich you can keep it. No one's going to take that away from you. But if you try to give everyone a sandwich, you might find that it's no longer available when you want it.

If you screw up a Reuben, you shouldn't be making sammiches.


Last place I worked, we made them on homemade baguettes.
You could get a large, foot long one on a fresh loaf, Made with Rye flour.
Baked in a pizza oven.
 People loved them, but I gave them a fail, and I worked there.
A Reuben is fried in butter. It is served with Fries, and those fries must be hot, and not greasy or soggy. And the 'chup must be Heinz 57.

The only real argument I could see here is that in some locations the Thousand Island is replaced with (or a replacement for) Russian Dressing.  I hold no particular opinion on which is "correct."

Would that you might teach the world your ways.

Can't get a decent Reuben anywhere near Capitol Hill these days, which is where I'm stuck at lunch time, which is the appointed time for Reuben consumption.

In the cafeteria upstairs from my office what they refer to as a "Reuben" is made with burnt, dry toast.

Burnt, dry toast, I tell you!  Marble rye!

Okies be wrong.

A Reuben is Corned Beef OR Pastrami (or go crazy with a combo), on Rye bread, topped with sourkraut, which is then topped with melted Swiss cheese, and of course another slice of rye.

The controversy can be either the more traditional mustard, or the just as acceptable (IMHO) Russian dressing.

It's crass to be served without a pickle. And if you're at Katz's in NYC, I highly recommend requesting a pickled tomato as well.

Deucednuisance: vudukungfu: A Reuben is fried in butter. It is served with Fries, and those fries must be hot, and not greasy or soggy. And the 'chup must be Heinz 57.
It is the holy trinity of hunger.

Would that you might teach the world your ways.

Can't get a decent Reuben anywhere near Capitol Hill these days, which is where I'm stuck at lunch time, which is the appointed time for Reuben consumption.

In the cafeteria upstairs from my office what they refer to as a "Reuben" is made with burnt, dry toast.

Burnt, dry toast, I tell you!  Marble rye!

It's a travesty.

If you give the President half a sandwich he will want the other half too. When he finishes the other half, he will want a pickle to go with it. Eating the pickle will remind him of the pickle he was in when healthcare.gov was not working. He will ask to borrow your computer to check if the website is still running. When he checking the website he will get a call from the NSA about his computer usage. He will want to call Putin to see what Edward Snowden is up to. Putin will tell him that Russia has annexed Crimea and has troops on the Ukraine border. That will remind him of the illegal immigrants crossing the border to work in the fields to pick fruits and vegetables. Thinking of fruit and vegetables will make him hungry. He will ask you for a pickle. And if you give him a pickle, chances are he will ask for a half sandwich.

Corned beef and sauerkraut is traditionally known as a Reuben.

Seriously, who doesn't know what a Reuben is?  Is it called a "Jew York Melt" in flyover country?

Speaking for Oklahoma, a Reuben here is corned beef and sauerkraut on rye. Sometimes it's served with swiss cheese. Always with brown mustard.

"I stopped for two reasons. The first is, the reuben is killer. So I ordered like the small, and it didn't look that small. So I gave half to Valerie Jarrett who's traveling with us. And then after I finished the half, I wanted the halfback. But it was too late. All she had left was the pickle. So I took the pickle."

You put the soft butter on the outside of the bread, not too much, you don't want it greasy, just enough to toast it a bit deep. You're more like frying it in a skim of butter than toasting it, this allows it to cook longer with out burning, and provide steam, too, as the milk solids evaporate. You Put a nice layer of the thousand island (Ketchup, mayo, and chopped pickles or relish) on the inside of both slices. You may preheat the corned beef (Sliced wafer thin) and sauerkraut in a cast iron pan, but drain it well before putting on the bread. Add sliced Swiss, ementhal, or baby Swiss and let it melt while it cooks slowly stacked up on a cast iron surface. You may cover it to keep heat in and let it stem slightly if your seeing it dry out too much, or not if it looks too wet.
Practice makes perfect just eat your mistakes.
The bread shouldn't leave you with very greasy fingers, but you will have to wipe them off. It shouldn't drip constantly and it shouldn't fall apart. Use toothpicks. Cut diagonally to give you a smaller edge to bit into.
Serve with some nice steak fries, well drained, crispy and salted.

The really confusing thing is that there are two kinds of Russian dressing. The kind on a Reuben is similar to Thousand Island, but there's also the kind that is like French dressing and ruins everything it touches.

I used to work at Zingerman's. I used to make them Reubens. Here's some of the dope on them:

- At Zingerman's, a 'half' sandwich has four ounces of meat, not the eight ounces a 'whole' has. Almost every regular at Zingerman's orders 'half' sandwiches. It is in every other way an entire sandwich. (I had a 1/2 #18 every day for lunch.)

- Zingerman's uses Russian dressing made from scratch (15 gallons at a time). It's not bad, but not terribly interesting either.

- The swiss is Emmenthaler (which cannot be beat).

- The rye is baked in a brick oven at ZIngerman's bakehouse (which is out by the airport). Good stuff.

For the record, I did make 'above minimum wage' when I worked there, but not much above ($7.25 an hour in 1992, IIRC). I don't miss working there one bit.

GoldSpider: tricycleracer: Zingerman's Reuben
Zingerman's corned beef, Switzerland Swiss cheese, Brinery sauerkraut & Russian dressing on grilled, hand-sliced Jewish rye bread.

Clearly a coded message to the Trilateral Commission giving the go-ahead for the disarmament of all American households and the institution of martial law.  And, of course, the Lamestream LIEbral Media says nothing.

Thanks, Obama.

Just for shiats and giggles I googled "trilateral commission infowars."

Yup.


I've heard of extreme masochism, but that's taking it to a whole new level.

I assume nobody paid for the sandwich because the government doesn't pay its bills and Obama and his entourage are the government. There's a real story there if the Washington Post would dig into it. Instead we get some sob story about a black man getting screwed over by whitey because he only got half a sandwich.

But seriously, its a Sub, or Submarine Sandwich.

And its called Soda. Its not pop, its soda.

Corned beef and sauerkraut is traditionally known as a Reuben.

/I should know.  I'm a professional sandwich eater.

Seriously, who doesn't know what a Reuben is?  Is it called a "Jew York Melt" in flyover country?

Speaking for Oklahoma, a Reuben here is corned beef and sauerkraut on rye. Sometimes it's served with swiss cheese. Always with brown mustard Russian Dressing.

vudukungfu: You put the soft butter on the outside of the bread, not too much, you don't want it greasy, just enough to toast it a bit deep. You're more like frying it in a skim of butter than toasting it, this allows it to cook longer with out burning, and provide steam, too, as the milk solids evaporate. You Put a nice layer of the thousand island (Ketchup, mayo, and chopped pickles or relish) on the inside of both slices. You may preheat the corned beef (Sliced wafer thin) and sauerkraut in a cast iron pan, but drain it well before putting on the bread. Add sliced Swiss, ementhal, or baby Swiss and let it melt while it cooks slowly stacked up on a cast iron surface. You may cover it to keep heat in and let it stem slightly if your seeing it dry out too much, or not if it looks too wet.
Practice makes perfect just eat your mistakes.
The bread shouldn't leave you with very greasy fingers, but you will have to wipe them off. It shouldn't drip constantly and it shouldn't fall apart. Use toothpicks. Cut diagonally to give you a smaller edge to bit into.
Serve with some nice steak fries, well drained, crispy and salted.


And THIS my fark friends, is how it is meant to be done.

Deucednuisance: IvyLady: I think the real issue is that Zingermans half sandwich is really a full sandwich and reporters love stories about how backwards the Midwest is.

I disagree: I just checked their menu online, and while there is no "che che spin salad" to found on it, the half reuben is $13.99!  There's your story!

(And: That better be one hell of a sandwich!)


Looks like they have side salads on rotation. Must just not have it today, but now I'm curious about it.

Actually, now I'm craving a baked knish, which looks delicious and more in my price range. Seriously, a 14-dollar sandwich? Geez. If I were in Ann Arbor, I'd consider going to that deli for potato pastry joy, but maybe look elsewhere for the glory that is the reuben sandwich.
 
2014-04-03 06:08:10 PM  
And then after I finished the half, I wanted the halfback

In Ann Arbor? OK, but they haven't had a decent one since 1948.

Amidala: If you give the President half a sandwich he will want the other half too. When he finishes the other half, he will want a pickle to go with it. Eating the pickle will remind him of the pickle he was in when healthcare.gov was not working. He will ask to borrow your computer to check if the website is still running. When he checking the website he will get a call from the NSA about his computer usage. He will want to call Putin to see what Edward Snowden is up to. Putin will tell him that Russia has annexed Crimea and has troops on the Ukraine border. That will remind him of the illegal immigrants crossing the border to work in the fields to pick fruits and vegetables. Thinking of fruit and vegetables will make him hungry. He will ask you for a pickle. And if you give him a pickle, chances are he will ask for a half sandwich.

Putin would have let Obama order the large and would have taken Russian dressing and drenched the sandwich with it.  That would have set up the charges that the entire sandwich contained evidence of enough Russian influence to allow Putin to annex the sandwich, eat the pickles and stiff Obama with the bill.

An Italian is a specific type of sub.  Ham, cheese, onions, peppers, pickles, tomato, salt, pepper, oil, cheep white roll.  Anything else is a sub.

Somehow, I suspect you're "from away".
