A Rachel is similar to a Reuben, having coleslaw as the main addition to the pastrami or corned beef. I decided to go with the coleslaw for my sammich today. I used mustard because I like mustard, not sure if it’s a usual condiment. Mrs J wanted the Reuben:
I do know that thousand island is usual on the Reuben, along with sauerkraut. We’ve been serving it on the side as a dipping sauce because to put it directly on the sammich gets messy, quick.
