This Reuben Sauce is a spicy condiment of sauerkraut, onions, horseradish, and pickled mustard seeds for any sandwich, burger, or hot dog!



Reuben Sauce

1/2 cup onion (chopped fine)

1/2 cup sauerkraut

1 teaspoon caraway seeds

2 tablespoons olive oil

2 tablespoons mayonnaise

2 tablespoons ketchup

2 teaspoons pickle relish (dill)

dash of Worcestershire sauce

1/2 cup grated Swiss cheese

1 teaspoon prepared horseradish

1/2 teaspoon pickled mustard seeds

For Serving

sliced corned beef

Swiss cheese

pumpernickel and wheat toasts for serving


In a medium-sized skillet, combine the olive oil and caraway seeds.

Heat over medium high heat, cook the caraway seeds for 2 minutes until fragrant.

Add the sauerkraut and onion to the pan.

Cook until onions are tender and golden brown.  Appr 8 mins.

When cooked, remove to a mixing bowl.

Add in the remaining ingredients stir to completely combine.

You can serve this Reuben Sauce warm or cold.

I recommend serving it on small cocktail toasts with some sliced corned beef and Swiss cheese.
