Reuben Bowl – Hiland Dairy

Reuben Bowl

All the same classic ingredients as a traditional Reuben sandwich. I used deli corned beef because it makes life easy, but you can absolutely cook your own corn beef and add it to the bowl.

Bowl Ingredients

  • 3 Tablespoons vegetable oil (divided)
  • ½ pound deli corned beef slices, cut in pieces
  • ½ yellow onion, chopped
  • 1 Tablespoon minced garlic
  • 1 teaspoon caraway seeds
  • 1 package bag coleslaw mix
  • ¾ cup sauerkraut
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ¼ teaspoon pepper
  • 5-6 slices Swiss cheese

Rye Bread Croutons Ingredients

  • Rye Bread, cut into cubes
  • Olive oil
  • Salt

Thousand Island Dressing

  • ¾ cup mayo
  • ¼ cup Hiland Dairy Sour Cream
  • 3-4 Tablespoons ketchup
  • 2 Tablespoons sweet relish
  • 2 Tablespoons yellow onion, chopped small
  • 2 teaspoons white wine vinegar
  • ½ teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 teaspoon minced garlic
  • ¼ teaspoon paprika
  • ¼ teaspoon salt


  • Start by making the Rye Bread croutons and the homemade Thousand Island Dressing. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees and line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Cut the Rye Bread into 1-2 inch cubes and spread out on the baking sheet. Drizzle with olive oil and a large sprinkle of salt. Then mix together to get the bread cubes coated. Bake for 5-10 minutes or until crunchy.
  • Thousand Island Dressing: In a medium bowl, mix all the ingredients together: Hiland Dairy Sour Cream, Mayo, ketchup, sweet relish, yellow onion, white wine vinegar, Worcestershire sauce, minced garlic, paprika, and salt. Mix together until smooth.
  • Bowl: In a large skillet over medium high heat, add 2 Tablespoons vegetable oil. Once hot, add the corned beef and heat for 2-3 minutes to warm and get a little char on the meat. Remove from the pan and set aside.
  • In the same skillet, add the remaining 1 Tablespoon of vegetable oil then the chopped onions. Cook the onions for about 3 minutes until soft. Add the minced garlic and caraway seeds. Mix together and cook for another 2 minutes.
  • Reduce heat to medium then add the bag of coleslaw mix to the skillet and mix with the onion mixture. Cook the coleslaw for about 5 minutes until soft but still has a crunch.
  • Add the sauerkraut plus the corned beef back into the skillet. Add the salt and pepper and mix everything together.
  • Place the slices of Swiss cheese over the top of the cabbage mixture and then reduce heat to low. Cover the skillet and let the cheese melt for about 3 minutes.
  • Spoon Reuben mixture into a bowl, top with the rye bread croutons and lots of Thousand Island dressing. Enjoy!
