Hoff's Reuben

Hoff's Reuben
Yields: 4-5 sandwiches
meat-free, dairy-free, egg-free


  1. Bring Broth, Braggs & Smoke to a boil in a medium size pot
  2. Meanwhile, slice Tempeh on the diagonal for short, thin slices
  3. Add to Broth, cover and cook on medium-low for 20 minutes
  4. In a small bowl, mix together Mayo, Relish & Ketchup to create the sauce, mix in Kraut until well coated
  5. Once Tempeh is done, start assembling sandwiches
  6. Butter one side of each piece of bread (outer side)
  7. Place 3-4 pieces of Tempeh, top with Kraut & then Cheese
  8. In a non-stick skillet, place sandwich, butter side down, using something flat & heavy to press down the sandwich until browned (I use a medium size pot)
  9. Flip & repeat

Hoff Thoughts: Yes, a traditional Reuben calls for Rye Bread.  But, I hate Rye Bread, I say use what you like.  This is a super rich sandwich and should only come out for special occasions.  Confession, I have never eaten a real Reuben, the thought of corned beef never appealed to me.  However, I have been reassured by someone who has, that this sandwich blows away the competition!  The number of sandwiches really depends on the size of the bread.
