Rachel Sandwich



There are slightly different interpretations of what a Rachel Sandwich should be, but all are variants of a Reuben Sandwich which is sauerkraut, corned beef, Rye Bread, Swiss cheese and Russian dressing.
    • One version is made by swapping the sauerkraut with coleslaw, but keeping the corned beef;
    • Another verison swaps the corned beef for another meat: some say turkey, some say pastrami -- but keeping the sauerkraut;
    • Some versions call for both turkey and corned beef;
    • Some versions swap the meat for turkey or pastrami, and swap the coleslaw for sauerkraut.

Some people say that Rachel and Reuben sandwiches are the same, but that scandalizes Reuben sandwich lovers, who see it as a licence for someone behind the counter to play with their order.
