There’s just something about the flavors of a Reuben that I loooovvveee. Soup is one of my favorite things to eat because it’s so comforting and reheats so well.
Speaking of comforting, I so much enjoyed this soup the other day after finding out I’ve gotta take Baby to a ophthalmologist specialist for her recurring eye ulcers.
I took this pic recently when she was having a good day with her eye. I’m so ready for her to get some relief! We’re going to be traveling 2 hours (one-way) to the eye specialist so you’ll probably be seeing a lot more slow cooker recipes on the blog soon.
Serve with toasted rye bread (or rye croutons). Be sure to check out my easy recipe for Reuben Dip, too… enjoy!Print
A hearty and comforting Reuben-inspired soup chock full of corned beef and sauerkraut.
- 1 tablespoon unsalted butter
- 2 cups chopped yellow onion (about one medium onion)
- 2 teaspoons freshly minced garlic
- 1 pound deli corned beef slices, sliced into about 1-inch pieces
- 1–1/2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
- 5 cups chicken broth
- 1 (14.5-ounce) can sauerkraut, very well drained
- 1/4 cup sour cream
- 2 tablespoons snipped fresh chives
- 1 cup shredded Swiss cheese, divided
- Melt butter over medium-high heat in a dutch oven or soup pot. Add onions and cook for 5 minutes, or until soft and translucent, stirring frequently.
- Add garlic and cook until fragrant, about 1 minute, stirring frequently.
- Stir in flour. Add the chicken broth, corned beef and sauerkraut and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to maintain a gentle simmer. Cover and simmer for 15 minutes.
