Easy to make slow cooker corned beef is layered on these sliders. Topped with Swiss cheese and a homemade Russian Dressing that makes these the BEST tasting Reuben Sliders around!!
Did you realize that St. Patrick’s Day is right around the corner?! Literally. It’s on Thursday. Do you have something green picked out to wear already? I don’t even think I have anything green. Whomp whomp whomp. Fail. But what I do have is an amazing recipe for these slow cooker Reuben Sliders! With a homemade russian dressing that will knock your little green socks off!! Corned beef is one of those things that I hardly ever make. But it’s sooooo good and when I do make it I wonder why, why do I not do this more often?! This corned beef is super easy to make too, in the slow cooker. Let it get all nice and tender. Perfect for loading up to make these Reuben Sliders.
We’re going to load these sliders up just like the Cuban sliders. Remember those?? I know you do!!! One of the most popular recipes on this little site here. Everyone knows those sliders. And I have made them myself probably about 500 times. It’s about time I made another slider right?? Trust me, I’ve been trying. I’ve had several fails and near misses attempting to make another recipe to put up here for you. Now I know, typically a reuben would be on rye bread. Well…sliders for me just don’t work well on rye bread. But these little sandwiches are still winners on the hawaiian rolls.
So, so easy right?! The russian dressing on these is pretty much near perfection. My favorite part? It has diced up pickles in it. Any sauce that has diced up pickles is a winner in my book.
And I did add sauerkraut on these. Let me be honest. I didn’t think I would like it. I had it in my mind that I wouldn’t like sauerkraut. But I thought, you know what? People are going to expect it to be on there. So I’m going to put it on there. And you know what?? It was actually good! If you’re adverse to the sauerkraut by all means, leave it off. But maybe.. maybe you can try it, and maybe you just might like it. No? Yea, that speech doesn’t work on my kids either.
