Why You Will Love This Recipe

These Corned Beef Reuben Sliders were a HUGE hit at our football party!

They are a great finger food for an event whether as an appetizer, snack, or main course. A mini version of the classic Reuben sandwich that so many love.

And it is a great way to use leftover corned beef or pastrami. But you can also buy the meat from your local deli to make these outside of St. Patrick’s Day because they are THAT good!

Ingredients

Full recipe quantities and details can be found in the recipe card at the bottom of this post.

Let’s talk about the ingredients you need for these beef sliders!

Slider Buns – I like to use Hawaiian rolls but any type of slider rolls will work great.

Corned Beef – leftover corned beef is perfect! You can also use pastrami, and find either of these options in the deli section of your local grocery store.

Russian Dressing – Russian dressing is traditional more so than Thousand Island dressing, but you can use either. The main difference is Russian dressing has horseradish in it.

Sauerkraut

Swiss Cheese – the classic cheese for Reuben sandwiches. You can use any white melty cheese you prefer such as provolone or monterey jack.

Caraway Seeds – these will provide a little crunch on top plus give us that classic rye flavor. If you do not like rye, you can skip this.

Butter – for toasting the top of the buns!

Instruction Overview

When all of your ingredients are ready, it only takes a few minutes to make this slider recipe!

First preheat your oven. Baking is going to let us warm everything up and melt the cheese!

Cut your rolls in half lengthwise and layer everything on them: the thinly sliced corned beef, sauerkraut, Russian dressing, and cheese.

Add the top buns and pour the melted butter over the buns. This is for flavor and to help them brown!

I love to add the caraway seeds on top because that is how you get the classic Rye flavor, which is the traditional bread in a Reuben sandwich recipe. But you can skip if you do not like rye.

Then bake them just long enough for the cheese to melt.

Serve with more sauce for dunking!

FAQs

Is a Reuben the same as a corned beef sandwich?

A Reuben is specifically corned beef (or pastrami) on rye bread with Swiss cheese, Thousand Island dressing (or Russian Dressing), and sauerkraut. A corned beef sandwich could technically be any sandwich with corned beef as the meat.

How do you make a Reuben sandwich not soggy?

Liquid is what makes a sandwich soggy. To prevent a Reuben from being soggy, make sure you drain the liquid off of the sauerkraut.
