Tantalus Steamed Sandwich

Tantalus“Boss! Let me join Tantalus again! We can steal treasure together, just like old times!”

—Zidane Tribal, FFIX

If you have a farmers’ market in your neighborhood, check and see if there’s a vendor who sells sauerkraut — homemade is way better than the kind they sell at the supermarket.

  • 4 tablespoons (60 g.) prepared horseradish
  • 1 tablespoon (14 g.) mayonnaise
  • 1 tablespoon (17 g.) ketchup
  • 2 slices of rye bread
  • 2 oz. Swiss cheese
  • 4 oz. thinly-sliced corned beef or pastrami
  • 2 oz. sauerkraut
  • Gysahl pickles (optional)

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. In a bowl, whisk together horseradish, mayonnaise, and ketchup. Lightly toast the bread and place on a very large piece of aluminum foil. Spread about half the dressing on the two pieces of bread, saving the other half for later.

Top one of the slices with, in order: half of the cheese, then all of the meat, then the rest of the dressing, then sauerkraut, then the rest of the cheese, and then the other slice of bread.

Wrap in aluminum foil, place on a baking sheet, and cook for about 30 minutes. Unwrap and cover with a plate, then quickly flip so the foil is on top. Remove foil, cut sandwich in half, and serve immediately.

Makes 1 sandwich. Multiply as needed for the entire troupe and serve with Gysahl pickles.

  1. It’s funny – I detest rye bread (I think it tastes like a pine tree), but I looooooove Reubens. So good.

    Also, it’s great – I love all your FFIX recipes, not only because they’re FFIX-related, but also because they are delicious! 😀 hahaha
