New Yorkers say my Reubens taste like those served in the famous delis there. For a little less kick, you can leave out the horseradish. —Patricia Kile, Elizabethtown, Pennsylvania

"I prepared this recipe tonight and I swear it tasted better than many restaurant Reubens I have had. It is super easy and absolutely delicious. I made it exactly as written except I used pastrami since I could not find corned beef around here. It worked perfectly. This is definitely a five star recipe and we will be having it again and again. Here is a link to my review and picture."

"We loved this recipe. I didn't have any rye bread on hand so I made the Onion Dill Bread on this site and it made an awesome subsitute."

"This recipe appeared years ago in Taste of Home magazine. I made them several times and misplaced the recipe. So glad to find it again! This is the very best Reuben recipe I have ever tried."

"I have tried a number of Reuben recipes and this one is the best I have ever made. I used our George Forman grill to toast to perfection but kept the rest pretty much the same. I am planning on making these again tomorrow!!!"
