Shop This Recipe

With travel to the US feeling like a far-off fantasy, here's one way to bring some 'NY' vibes into your life: with a homemade Reuben. This New York deli classic is a simple grilled sandwich with corned beef, Swiss cheese, sauerkraut and Russian dressing tucked between slices of rye. Serve with a handful of potato chips, a pickle and a strong black coffee.

(2 hours) Serves 4-6


  • Rye bread
  • Saint David Dairy Butter
  • Russian dressing
  • Swiss cheese
  • Corned beef
  • Sauerkraut (store bought is fine)

Corned Beef:

  • 750g-1kg Traditional Corned Beef
  • 1 large onion
  • 12 cloves
  • 1 carrot, roughly chopped
  • 1 celery stick, roughly chopped
  • 12 black peppercorns
  • 2 bay leaves
  • 1 tbsp of vinegar
  • 2 tbsp of brown sugar

Russian Dressing

  • 1/2 cup mayonnaise
  • 3 tbsp tomato sauce
  • 2 tbsp horseradish 
  • 2 tsp Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 tbsp sugar 
  • 1/4 tsp paprika
  • Salt
  • Ground black pepper


  1. For the Corned beef, stud the peeled onion with the cloves. Place all ingredients in a large pan and cover with cold water. Bring to the boil and simmer for about 30 minutes per 500g. Skim the scum from the surface several times during the cooking process. After around an hour, switch off the heat and allow the beef to sit in the liquid for 30 minutes. Remove and slice to your liking.
  2. For the Russian dressing, in a medium bowl, whisk together mayonnaise, tomato sauce, horseradish, Worcestershire sauce, sugar, and paprika until combined. Season with salt and pepper. 
  3. Butter one side of each slice of bread. On the non-butter side spread Russian dressing on each slice. Top half of the slices with cheese, corned beef, and sauerkraut. Top each sandwich with remaining slices, dressing side down. 
  4. Heat a medium skillet over medium heat. Place a sandwich in skillet and cook until golden and cheese is melted, 3 minutes per side.
  5. Serve the Reuben cut in half with a side of sea salt chips and a pickle.

This stew is a great example of showcasing how much flavour our newly released Fresh Chorizo can bring to a dish! ​It's paired with bone-in chicken thighs, where the skin has been seasoned and the fat is nicely rendered and crispy, tomatoes, oregano and olives. Another bonus, is that it's made in one pot for an easy clean up and can be served with rice or salad and fresh bread.

Our healthier take on Cacio Pepe, with the added goodness of greens! The brocollinni is taken to the point of being slightly charred, so it adds a real savoury flavour along with great texture to the dish. It's a dish that can be whipped up using mostly pantry staples and it served up in less than half an hour! You can sub the brocollinni out for any kind of veg and you could also add in some dry cured bacon for a little more richness.

In the spirit of spring, we've used our Slow Cooked Lamb Shoulder for some bloody tasty tacos! ​We prepared it with slices of orange, onion, dried morita chilli and cumin and then sandwiched it in a corn tortilla with a tomatillo salsa and cabbage. Using our slow cooked lamb shoulder has made what is usually a 3-4 hour cook, into a quick and easy dinner that you can even cook mid week!
