Reuben Challenge

  • Published on Apr 1, 2015
  • Three chefs. Three Reubens. But only one sandwich can rule them all.
    The Reuben sandwich: a deli standard stuffed with corned beef brisket, Swiss cheese, sauerkraut, and Russian dressing-on this we can all agree. And we can agree, too, that it's one of the most delicious things ever to get squished between two slices of bread. It's savory, sloppy, and deeply satisfying.
    The controversy comes-at least in our kitchen-when it's time to actually build the thing. This we found out recently while developing our Corned Beef recipe. (Look for it later this week!) As we honed in on the perfect method for making epic home-brined beef, the conversation in the kitchen turned to Reubens, and we soon discovered everyone had a different idea of how to assemble this exceptional sandwich.
    At ChefSteps, we don't tell you how to cook, we show you-with recipes designed to inspire and educate, tested techniques for successful results at home, and a lively forum where you'll chat with other chefs and home-cooking enthusiasts.

    Marbled rye? Wrong. Dark rye? Not a Reuben. Why not put ham and turkey and mayo on it?
    West coast people. They’re all retarded.
    The panini guy may have gone just a little over on the meat but otherwise correct. Panini press is acceptable.
    Potato chips? Die in a fire. What an idiot.

    ehy guys i love your videos, but i can't see when you cook with pets in the kitchen.
    I don't know if in Seattles is different than Italy but the sanitary rules would prevent this thing.
    Moreover, offer this kind of food to a dog is harmful to his Health
    not offense, it's just an observation

    • Il CriticOne Bigmax
      Il CriticOne Bigmax 2 years ago

      In my country if a "Nas" agent, sees pets into a restaurant's kitchen, make it close the activity for sanitary check (for at least a week).
      Pets are pets... must be outside of kitchen (if you want in the main room, but not in the kitchen).
      there are norms called HACCP that must be followed

    • DrCoconut465
      DrCoconut465 2 years ago +1

      i guess this would be at the end of the day where everything is going to be cleaned anyway, why not have some fun with it. i don't think they're serving any food during that time anyway. as for the corned beef, i assume it's not directly harmful to a dog's health like chocolate but only good in moderation. it was a bit much, but i'm guessing its not a daily thing.

      +xin z the hell? by that logic, because people in Africa are starving, you shouldn't eat anything more than easily mass produced food yourself. But do you? Or do you have steak, pork, chicken, and many more expensive vegetables that aren't exactly available in Africa?
