Corned Beef Panini with Muenster Cheese and Wilted Cabbage

Article Image
Ellen Silverman

Yield: Makes 2 sandwiches

Here’s a quick and tasty way to get that beloved corned beef and cabbage combination (with melted Muenster as a surprise ingredient) in a toasty sandwich everyone will love.

Ingredients

  • 1 cup thinly sliced green cabbage
  • 1 Tbs. olive oil
  • 1/4 tsp. table salt
  • Freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 tsp. yellow mustard seeds
  • 2 Tbs. unsalted butter, softened
  • 4 1/2-inch-thick slices rye bread with caraway seeds
  • 1 Tbs. grainy mustard, more to taste
  • 12 thin slices (6 oz.) corned beef
  • 6 thin slices (3 oz.) Muenster cheese

Preparation

  • Combine the cabbage, 1/4 cup water, the olive oil, salt, pepper, and mustard seeds in a small saucepan and heat over medium-high heat until the water comes to a boil. Turn the heat to medium-low, cover, and steam, stirring occasionally, until the cabbage is very soft and completely wilted, 10 to 15 minutes. Use a slotted spoon to transfer the cabbage to a bowl, leaving any excess water in the pot, and set aside.
  • Heat a panini or sandwich press according to the manufacturer’s instructions.
  • Spread some butter on one side of each slice of bread. Put the bread, buttered sides down, on a cutting board. Spread mustard on two of the slices. Arrange the corned beef on top of the mustard. Spread an even layer of cabbage over the corned beef. Top with the cheese, then the remaining bread slices, buttered side up.
  • Put the sandwiches on the press, pull the top down, and cook until they are browned and crisp and the corned beef is warmed thorugh, 5 to 8 minutes, depending on how hot your machine is. Carefully remove from the press and serve immediately.

Serve with a Radish & Parsley Salad with Lemon.

    Absolutely delicious! The steamed cabbage makes the sandwich. The cabbage would make an excellent side dish for another meal! The combination of all the ingredients is spot on. I like the traditional reuben but enjoyed this even more. Thank you for sharing this recipe!

    Sorry to be so picky, but the typo substituting "boil" for "Bowl" makes the recipe very confusing just on the first reading.The sandwich does not sound like my cup of tea, but I never liked a classical Reuben either.It does provide a good opportunity to test the cabbage seasoning without investing in more than one sandwich at a time. If you love the cabbage and mustard seed combo, you could easily use it in other recipes.
