Slow Cooker Reuben Sandwiches are perfect for leftover corned beef after your St. Patrick's Day dinner with a quick sauerkraut, Swiss cheese and thousand island dressing.Slow Cooker Reuben Sandwiches are in fact perfect for leftovers, but let’s be honest, you are going to want to make a second (and third) corned beef just for this sandwich. I have a secret  not so secret addiction to slow cooker sandwiches and this one is almost my favorite one.

Truth: my favorite one are these amazing Slow Cooker Philly Cheese Steak Sandwiches that are a huge hit on the blog already. They’re ridiculous and we love them and I need to stop making them. Slow Cooker Reuben Sandwiches are perfect for leftover corned beef after your St. Patrick's Day dinner with a quick sauerkraut, Swiss cheese and thousand island dressing.

The best part about these Slow Cooker Reuben Sandwiches are how incredibly easy the recipe is. It is based on the Slow Cooker Corned Beef Dinner I posted last week and takes just a couple of adjustments in crafting the sandwich.

You can also use the recipe for the Crispy Slow Cooker Corned Beef but just realize there won’t be cabbage in that one so you may want to grab a jar of sauerkraut. If you want to switch things up? Try topping that crispy corned beef with these Roasted Cabbage SteaksSlow Cooker Reuben Sandwiches are perfect for leftover corned beef after your St. Patrick's Day dinner with a quick sauerkraut, Swiss cheese and thousand island dressing.

Some quick notes about these Slow Cooker Reuben Sandwiches:

  • We add a bit of apple cider vinegar to the cabbage that was in the slow cooker and a few caraway seeds.
  • Thousand island dressing is an easy authentic and flavorful choice for the dressing. Don’t have any? I have a recipe for it below in the recipe card!
  • Want the corned beef to be even crispier, broil it for 30-45 seconds on the top shelf of your oven for deliciously caramelized slices of corned beef. Alternately you can brown them in a skillet on medium high heat for a couple of minutes.
  • Butter the hoagie roll lightly before toasting. Trust me on this, it is infinitely better!

Tools Used in the making of this Slow Cooker Reuben Sandwiches:
Slow Cooker: Love this slow cooker and how programmable it is, it has been a workhorse for me… until…
My New Slow Cooker: This recipe was made in this slow cooker. I browned the chicken in the cast aluminum insert before cooking the chicken on low, so I didn’t have a second pan to clean. For larger roasts I also brown the meat in the insert and not lose a bunch of the flavor by transferring the meat and leaving the browned bits behind. If you’re thinking of a new slow cooker, consider it if your budget is open.
Sauerkraut: If you want to skip the cabbage or ran out, this is the basic style that works best on the sandwiches.
Thousand Island: My absolute favorite brand, I also LOVE their blue cheese dressing and have eaten it since I was a kid growing up.
