Tips from the Betty Crocker Kitchens

  • tip 1
    History isn’t clear as to how the Reuben sandwich got its name—one version says it was named in 1914 for the owner of New York’s once-famous Reuben’s Delicatessen. Others say Reuben Kay, a wholesale grocer from Omaha, named the sandwich in 1955.
  • tip 2
    A Dutch oven is a deep, heavy pot with thick walls and a tight-fitting cover. It's excellent for slow-cooking dishes like this Reuben Soup.
  • tip 3
    The taste of caraway seed can be slightly aggressive, so feel free to leave it out when making this Reuben sandwich soup recipe if it’s not your favorite flavor.
