“Quick, easy, and suprisingly tasty. For slow, deliberate, meticulous, and older cooks like myself, double time to make. If my wife is in the kitchen supervising, the time is increased exponentially. Note: Julesong's "Whathaveyou sauce" (Reuben Sandwich Our Way) elevates this sandwich to a 6 star level. Try it!”
