The ultimate sandwich hands down. Sour kraut, pickles, mustard, cheese, silverside........what's not to love. This is one of the classics and once you try it you will never look back!
8 slices of organic sourdough bread (I use Zeally Bay Organic Sour dough).
Butter for spreading
200 grams Gruyere cheese, thinly sliced
1 cup sauerkraut – white or red cabbage, well drained
300 grams pastrami or silverside
Butter one side of each slice of bread.
Spread the unbuttered sides generously with mustard.
Top the mustard side of four slices of the bread with half the cheese.
Add all of the sauerkraut then the pastrami then the remaining cheese.
Sandwich with the remaining bread, buttered side up.
Place into a good quality sandwich press and toast until golden and the cheese has melted. Alternatively fry each side in a pan until golden and transfer to a moderate oven to heat the filling and melt the cheese.
