Guinness Reuben Brats or Hotdogs

Wednesday, March 17, 2021
Guinness Reuben Brats or Hotdogs (actually any kinds sausages are great), take on the flavors of the classic Reuben Corned Beef Sandwich and this is how to make the BEST REUBEN DOG EVER!!


The bun is filled with all the same ingredients except for the sausage and bread and commonly referred to as a Poor Mans Reuben Dog.


What I love about this meal is the wonderful same toppings that also compliment a regular hotdog, brats, or kielbasa and all kinds of sausages you like.


Plus these are available anytime and cook up quickly anytime for indoor/outdoor grilling and perfect for a St. Patrick's Day celebrations.


If you're searching for delicious recipesfor St. Patrick's Day to celebrate with, this is made in less than 30 minutes once you gather these simple ingredients.


These sausages are loaded up with sauerkraut. Swiss cheese, Thousand Island dressing all in a neat bun, or you can fold them into a large slice of rye bread for even a closer flavor to orignal style classic Reuben recipe.

If you're looking for easy quick delicious change to that classic sandwich, try this out, it's really delicious.

Dogs Dressed to the Nines



Seriously if you are a Reuben Sandwich lover, this version using any kinds of sausages is going to keep you wondering what took you so long to think of this yourself like we did when we first had one.


Many years ago these were on a favorite Southern restaurant and have been making them like this ever since all summer long on the grill.


They also were called Poor Mans Reuben Dogs because they're much more economical to make and for sure quicker than making a favorite Slow Cooker Corned Beef (which will always be our first choice of meats).








Guinness Reuben Brats or Hotdogs Ingredients To Get to Make These



  1. brats, kielbasa, hotdogs, Italian sweet or hot sausage or another sausage you prefer
  2. regular or bavarian style sauerkraut drained
  3. sliced swiss cheese
  4. thousand island dressing or homemade
  5. seeded or seedless rye bread
  6. Irish butter, spreadable whipped butter






Cooking Methods

  1. Grilling: you will need to boil(if you have a side burner, boil outside for 5 minutes, drain and proceed with grilling. Heat the grill up on medium-high heat, and grill the meat on both sides until grill marks remain around 3 minutes on each side
  2. Air Fry: Boil meat for 5 minutes of choice then, drain, place on air fryer basket.Air fry at 400 degrees until browned around 6 minutes
  3. Stovetop: In a large frying pan add enough beer to cover the meat boil for around 5 minutes, drain and add a little cooking oil or butter and saute until browned
  4. Slow Cooker: brown whatever meat you're using first. Pour the beer over the sausages you're using and set the cooker to high for 4 hours.  A half-hour before it's done add drained sauerkraut. Proceed with assembling your sandwich. 
  5. Instant Pot: Sear the meat first,  pour the beer into the pot with meat, set the instant pot to pressure cooker mode for 30 minutes.








Meat Suggestions

  • brats
  • kielbasa, 
  • beef summer sausages,
  • cheese-filled hotdogs or regular hotdogs
  • Italian sweet or hot sausages
  • Not a fan of any of the above, use deli-style corned beef or roast beef  instead
