You’re going to LOVE this Keto Reuben Sandwich
Reuben bowls and casseroles are pretty good, but there is something about two slices of bread that just hits the spot. This super easy Reuben Sandwich is low carb and dairy-free with a simple take on this classic.
In this post, I am sharing my Keto Reuben Sandwich Recipe, using some tasty, and pretty clean, keto and dairy-free ingredients! A dairy-free Reuben recipe that’s really easy to make, using some store-bought favorites and my chef recommended products. I will also give you alternatives so that you can make a keto Reuben that fits your needs.
Easy Button Ingredients
If you’re a long-time Castaway, you might be surprised at some of these ingredients. For the past 7 years I have stuck to a fairly rigid paleo, no processed foods diet. While that still encompasses the vast majority of my diet, I have also reintroduced some new foods and found that I can tolerate some potato starch and what I call “healthy” processed foods now and then. The benefit here is flexibility with my diet, my lifestyle to enjoy recipes like this Keto Reuben Sandwich!
- If I don’t have a loaf of my Nut Free Keto Bread made then I’m buying this Carbonaut Rye like loaf. It’s REALLY good- it’s all fiber, and comes out to 1 net carb per loaf. It’s really the BEST bread option for a keto Reuben Sandwich! You can get it in the freezer section at Whole Foods or by the case on Amazon.
- I bought the corned beef from Costco, they sell it marinating. I just dumped it in my pressure cooker and added water. Cooked it on high for 2 hours. Howerver you can slow cook it, or get corned beef from the deli.
- As far as dairy free cheese goes, I have historically made my own, like my Mozz Blocks recipe, but with my new found tolerance to potato starch in some products, I gave Miyokos Creamery a go and it’s tasty when it’s melted.
- Russian dressing is a mix of mayo and ketchup and if you’re keto I would reccomend Primal Kitchen avocado oil mayo or homemade mayo and sugar free ketchup. Howerver, I can’t eat tomatoes, so I used mustard and mayo. Use code CASTAWAY for a discount on Primal Kitchen.
- While making homemade sauerkraut is fairy easy, and I have a recipe in Made Whole Made Simple, I really like Kraut among the store bought brands.
Easy Peasy Keto Reuben
- Grab your keto bread and lay them flat on your counter or cutting board. Smear your sauce on one slice. On the other arrange your dairy free cheese.
- Pile your shredded or sliced corned beef on the other slice.
- Place in a toaster oven and broil for 4 minutes or until the bread is toasted and the cheese has melted.
- Pile the Kraut over the toasty corned beef, carefully grab the slice with melted cheese and close the sandwich. Gently press down.
- Cut it in half diagonally and then dig in!
Frequently Asked Questions
Not if I eat it occasionally. However, if you are, you can use a homemade recipe.
Yes, you can use any bread you like, but I recommend sourdough or rye bread for optimal flavor.
Yes, and if you eat cheese on your keto diet then go for it. However, dairy-free cheese flavors are limited. The Miyoko’s “Cheddar” worked for me.
