Reuben sandwiches are a perfect snack for game day or anytime, really! The key to a great reuben is skipping the deli counter and cooking a corned beef brisket in a dutch oven with two cups of chicken broth for 2.5 hours. Plus, switching up the cheese and adding pickles give this an extra flavor boost!
