Reuben Meat Loaf

This is the recipe you want when your family becomes tired of the same old, same old recipe you always use. It captures all the flavours of the Reuben sandwich everyone loves.

  • 1 egg, slightly beaten
  • 1 tbsp. ketchup
  • 1 tbsp. thick Teriyaki sauce
  • 2 cups soft bread crumbs
  • pinch of salt
  • 2 lbs. ground beef
  • 1 can sauerkraut (8 0z) rinsed well and thoroughly drained
  • 4 – 5 oz. pastrami (deli cut) chopped
  • 1 cup  Swiss Cheese, grated
  • 1/3 cup sour cream
  • 1 tbsp. prepared mustard (yellow or grainy)

In a large bowl, mix together the ketchup, teriyaki sauce, egg, salt and bread crumbs. Crumble the ground beef into the crumbs and mix well.

In another bowl, mix together the sauerkraut, pastrami, sour cream and mustard.

Press one third (approx.) of the meat into a 9 x 5 inch loaf pan that has been prepared by using Pam spray.

Top with one half of the pastrami. Repeat the layers, finishing with the last of the meat.

In a preheated oven of 350 degrees, bake for one hour. Remove from the oven and let stand for 10 minutes before slicing.


Serve with perfectly mashed potatoes,  chilled salad and warm rolls. What a night! Damn, you did this….AGAIN!
