Reuben Rave

September 8th, 2020 § 0 comments

HG ate, with much gusto, a classic Reuben sandwich for lunch. Shockingly and surprisingly tasty. The ingredient that took it over the top was sliced corned beef. Gifted (and thoughtful) Daughter Lesley R. bought it at the Farmers Market during the recent visit by Lesley R. and husband, Massimo R., with HG/BSK on Prince Edward Island. The corned beef was the real deal, as good as the wonderful stuff HG consumed at Gitlitz, 2nd Avenue Delicatessen and Katz’s (New York heartburn shrines). To construct the Reuben, HG was forced to use supermarket rye rather than New York Jewish rye (available on line from Zabar’s). Oh, well. The other ingredients were Swiss cheese, sauerkraut and Russian dressing. All good. Lesley R. also bought Montreal smoked meat (a northern cousin of pastrami) from the Farmers Market meat smoker. More jolly sandwiches in the future. HG is thinking about the Montreal product with cole slaw and mustard. BSK’s pickles on the side. Yum.
