  • 1½ pounds cooked peeled beets (see Tip), very thinly sliced
  • 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
  • 2 teaspoons ground coriander
  • 2 teaspoons mustard seeds
  • ½ teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • ¼ teaspoon ground allspice
  • 3 tablespoons mayonnaise
  • 2 tablespoons ketchup
  • 1 tablespoon dill relish
  • 1 teaspoon hot sauce
  • 4 slices rye bread, toasted
  • ¾ cup sauerkraut, rinsed and squeezed dry
  • 4 ounces sliced Swiss cheese


  • Prep

  • Ready In

  1. Position rack in upper third of oven; preheat broiler to high.
  2. Toss beets with oil, coriander, mustard seeds, cinnamon and allspice in a large bowl to coat. Combine mayonnaise, ketchup, relish and hot sauce in a small bowl.
  3. Spread the sauce on one side of each slice of bread and place on a baking sheet. Top with the beets, sauerkraut and cheese.
  4. Broil the sandwiches until the cheese is melted and starting to brown, about 5 minutes. Serve immediately.
  • Tip: Precooked beets are a time-saver and come already peeled, meaning less mess. You can find them in vacuum-sealed packages in the refrigerated produce section.
  • To make ahead: Refrigerate beets and sauce (Step 2) separately for up to 3 days.

I've never had corned beef so I cannot compare the two but these were excellent. I thought it would be too sour with pickled beets and kraut but it was a flavorful, hearty sandwich. The spices on the beets are key.
