I love a good Reuben Burger, I’m always surprised how many different adaptations there are depending on which country you go to. Some people use Sauerkraut, some use swiss cheese, some use russian dressing.
My Reuben Burger would usually have sauerkraut as an ingredient but as I didn’t have any at the time of making I left it out. I don’t use pastrami, I find it has too strong a flavour when used with a burger. I do however use pastrami in a Reuben deli sandwich.
I purchased my burgers from the Meat Merchant in Jesmond, sometimes it’s easier to buy a good burger than make one yourself, especially when you’re only cooking for two!
I used a Ciabatta bun, lightly toasted topped with a slice of Swiss cheese, this was topped with grilled peppers. The burger was placed on top and another slice of Swiss cheese was added. Lettuce, dill pickles and a home made Russian dressing finished the burger off.
