reubenI love a good Reuben Sandwich and I wanted to take it up a notch for an elevated experience. I did a little change by adding a pound and a half of ground chuck and made a burger Pattie. Don’t worry, it turned out Absolutely Money and I can’t wait to share the recipe with you, let’s get into it!

Course Main Course
Cuisine German


  • pounds Ground chuck
  • 1 pound Corned Beef
  • 1 cup Sauerkraut
  • 1 cup Swiss cheese
  • 1-2 tsp Fennel seeds
  • 1 tsp Kosher Salt
  • 1 tsp Black pepper
  • 1 tsp Garlic powder
  • 1 loaf Sourdough bread
  • 1 jar Your favorite thousand island
  • 1 jar Your favorite brown mustard


  • Start off by prepping your corn beef. I used deli corn beef and just cut it into mini cubes. Once cut, I made sure to have all of my ingredients prepped and ready. 
  • In a large mixing bowl add your ground chuck, corn beef, sauerkraut, Swiss cheese, fennel seeds, salt, pepper and garlic powder. Mix by hand until it’s mixed to your preference.
  • Form large 1/3-1/2 pound patties and place in the fridge for 30-45 mins.
  • Prep your grilling station by getting some active coals down and then place a flat top griddle over it. Add a tablespoon of avocado oil and 1-2 tablespoons of unsalted butter. Let it melt.
  • Place your patties down, it’s important to not overcrowd your griddle, maybe 2-3 patties at a time. Let them cook on a medium surface (350ish) for 6-8 mins per side. Make sure you have a great crust and then flip. Repeat and remove the burgers to a resting rack.
  • Add the sourdough bread to the griddle top and immediately sauce both buns with your brown mustard and add the patty and then top with a thousand island dressing. Let the buns toast and then assemble.
  • Place on the serving plates and enjoy with Family and Friends!
