I first tasted this soup at a Dutch mom-n-pop joint called Russ'. It was love at first spoonful. Compelled to make this soup, I dissected each bite searching for flavors and ingredients. Here is my recipe. Enjoy! P.S. It is easier to make than it seems by the ingredient list.

Directions

  1. Cook and stir onion, celery, red bell pepper, butter, garlic, tarragon, and caraway seeds in a stock pot over medium heat until vegetables are tender, 6 to 8 minutes.
  2. Slowly stir flour into vegetable mixture. Cook on low until flour is lightly browned, stirring constantly, about 10 minutes.
  3. Stir beef stock, half-and-half, corned beef, sauerkraut, seasoned salt, and black pepper into vegetable mixture. Reduce heat to low and simmer until soup is heated through and slightly thickened, about 30 minutes.
  4. Stir 2 cups Swiss cheese into soup until melted. Ladle soup into individual bowls and top with rye croutons and remaining Swiss cheese.

Great soup! I used carrots instead of the red bell pepper, reduced the butter, added more caraway seeds and used milk instead of half and half with great results.

This is soooo good! One of my favorite sandwiches is a reuben, so I knew I had to make this when I saw it. The recipe is perfect as-is. I did have to make my own rye croutons due to lack of availability in my grocery store, but they were easy--cube rye bread and toast in the overn for a few minutes. They are a must with this soup to give it the full reuben flavor, and you'll want to generously top your soup with them. Thanks for warming up a cold day with a yummy recipe!

I also subbed red pepper for carrots. I had 11 oz. of corned beef so adjusted ingredients accordingly. My hubby is lactose intolerant so I did 4 cups of beef broth and 2 cups half and half. Turned out delish! Could have even done 5 cups broth and one cup half and half and still would have been creamy.
