ILLUSTRATED KITCHEN BIBLE
8 oz (225 g) sauerkraut
12 oz (340 g) sliced corned beef
8 slices rye bread
4 oz (115 g) sliced Swiss cheese
1/2 cup store-bought Russian salad dressing
4 tbsp butter
Rinse the sauerkraut in a colander. Place a plate on top and let drain in the sink for 15 minutes.
Spread the bread slices with the dressing. Divide the corned beef, Swiss cheese, and sauerkraut over 4 slices. Top each with a bread slice, dressing side down.
Melt 1 tbsp of butter in a very large frying pan over medium heat. Add 2 of the sandwiches and top each with a small heatproof plate. Cook for about 2 minutes, or until the underside is golden brown.
Flip the sandwiches over, removing and replacing the plates. Add 1 tbsp of butter and cook another 2 minutes, or until the other side is golden brown. Transfer to a platter and tent with aluminium foil. Repeat with the remaining sandwiches and butter.
