Open-Faced Reuben Sandwiches
Chef Way A classic Reuben features corned beef and cheese topped with sauerkraut and dripping with Russian dressing. In his restaurant riff, David Burke serves a pastrami-spiced steak with homemade sauerkraut and a baked potato.
Easy Way Burke creates a Reubenesque sandwich but omits the Russian dressing and skips the sauerkraut in favor of a much lighter, fresher and faster cabbage slaw. Served open-faced, it's a fabulous "knife-and-fork sandwich," as he calls it.
