Reuben In A Bowl (Keto) has all the components of a traditional Reuben Sandwich without the high-carb bread. Even if you don’t eat KETO this dish is a satisfying low-carb option that you’ll love. It’s really simple to make! For a short cut use a store bought dressing or make the Thousand Island Dressing in the recipe.
This Reuben In A Bowl (Keto) has the ingredients of a Reuben sandwich without the rye bread. The thick slices of tender corned beef brisket will make your mouth water. The sauerkraut, Swiss cheese, and Thousand Island (or Russian) Dressing give it the sour tang taste. The addition of the shredded cabbage and carrot are the base of the bowl. But the toasted caraway seeds and cornichons are the secret ingredients that make all the difference!!! It really tastes like a traditional Reuben Sandwich.
Traditionally a Reuben Sandwich is served with a slather of Russian Dressing on each piece of bread but for this bowl I chose, it’s less spicy counterpart, Thousand Island Dressing. Russian Dressing is a deeper orange tinge because of the paprika and it’s usually spicy. Thousand Island Dressing is a lighter color and has citrus. Either dressing would be delicious drizzle on this recipe for Reuben In A Bowl (Keto).
