Reuben eggrolls

blind99blind99 Posts: 4,220
started with a corned beef flat. De-salted for 24 hours. Then rubbed with pastrami spice and rested 24 hours. Smoked, then wrapped up tight to soften up. 



The pastrami spice was a gift from a really kind gentleman who knew I liked curing and smoking. He passed away last week, so this smoke was for him!



The pastrami was awesome. Chopped up and combined with rinsed sauerkraut and Swiss cheese. Into a wrapper and deep fried, served with thousand island as a dip. 



Happy Saturday!

    Interesting use! 
    I had not even read this until now AFTER I had divided up the left over corned beef from last night for Reuben's and some breakfast corned beef hash. I really do like your idea! 
    Since someone LOL just brought up using left over corned beef does anyone have a kick butt recipe? All I ever did was use left over CB and some potatoes and while I like the results my wife always shies away and just has some toast!

    I've had these at McGuire's Pub in Ft. Walton Beach.  They are amazing!!  I'm sure yours take it to the next level.  I've rarely had a meal at a restaurant that cannot be made better at home!!

    @rrainman when i was looking for how to make these, there was a clip of them being made at a place called mcguire's.  not sure if it's the same one, but they were making the wrappers and the corned beef from scratch and i think the dressing too - impressive for a bar!

    @dmw that's a great idea, i definitely want to do that.

    @jacksdad yep, i used my good old wedding present fryer. i don't know what oil it was - it was a gallon of wal mart's finest "vegetable oil." used part for the fried chicken and the rest for these.  fried stuff is the most delicious.

    @rrp i love hash but can't say i make it a lot or have a recipe.  all i can offer is that i like a cast iron pan for making it browned and crispy.

     Philly cheese steak, BBQ of any style, or pizza toppings fried in egg roll wrappers are great apps. Heck, the sky is the limit. Perfect way to make an ethnic themed appetizer.

    Try sweet potatoes.  Peel and cube them up, quick cook in microwave then into a frying pan with diced onions until they start to crisp/caramelize.  Add the diced corned beef/pastrami, cook to crisp a bit then serve with a couple of runny eggs.  You can add anything to it, but I think sweet potatoes go really well with that salty meat.

    I had some hamburger and rice left over from cabbage rolls, so I used it with the extra egg roll wrappers. It was good with honey mustard sauce.
