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.

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.

oryx: 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.


That really was very good.

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.


BRILLIANT. +11ty.

I think we're all a little stupider now for reading that story.  The author of that story should be taken out and treated to a swirly in a recently used toilet.  Repeatedly. After that, sterilized to prevent any further dilution of the average intelligence of the human gene pool.

Hey, it spawned a hilarious thread.  That's gotta count for something.

toadist: Man,  Putin would have ordered the large.   Ate the whole thing +the pickle,  then he would have taken a bag of chips from one of the other patrons and washed it all down with Jarret's coke.


Pffft..... half a small.    Good lord.


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.

Putin somehow beat Obama by invading Crimea.  Obama lost because he failed to fire the nukes.  Stupid is so stupid it's stupid.

cman: I think the controversy here is it being called a reuben.

My dumbass fellow Mainers call subs Italians.

But seriously, its a Sub, or Submarine Sandwich.

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


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".

/Now I want an Italian.

Technically, the story should read this way:

"Obama ordered a rueben and so did the republican...Obama ate his entire sandwich and then took the republican's sandwich away from him and gave it to people who refused to pay for their own sandwich."
