Slow Cooker Reuben Dip Recipe

My very favorite sandwich gets turned into a warm, creamy, and cheesy dip in this Crock Pot Reuben Dip recipe. It’s the perfect appetizer for game day or any party. Since it is cooked in a crock pot you can just leave it in the crock pot to stay warm. So convenient.

Ingredients Needed

Only a few ingredients are needed to make this delectable Reuben Dip: a block of cream cheese, some mayonnaise, shredded swiss cheese, chopped corned beef, sauerkraut, Thousand Island dressing, and a splash of Worcestershire sauce.

Honestly, I think my favorite part of a Reuben sandwich is the Thousand Island or Russian Dressing. I love the sweetness with the tang of the sauerkraut.

If I see a Reuben on a menu with mustard instead, it’s a total deal breaker.

My next favorite thing about a Reuben is the gooey Swiss cheese and there’s plenty of it in this Reuben Dip recipe. Combined with cream cheese and mayonnaise, it makes this dip supremely rich.

Slow Cooker Reuben Dip Recipe Tips:

You can use deli-sliced corned beef or leftover homemade corned beef.

Pastrami can be used in place of corned beef.

Be sure to squeeze the sauerkraut well to get rid of the excess liquid.

How To Bake In An Oven

If you don’t want to make this dip in a slow cooker, place it in a baking dish and bake at 350 degrees F for 20 to 25 minutes ot until hot throughout.

How To Store

Leftovers will keep for about 4 days in an airtight container in the refrigerator. Leftovers taste great on a baked potato!

    Conflicting information on cooking time. One says 2 hrs 30 min, another says 4 hrs 30 min. Although this has been asked previously, I don’t see an answer. Help!

      Sorry about that! It is 2 1/2 hours. Or however long it takes for the cheese to get really warm and melted.

          I just want to say try it and it was grate. Made up two batches for the ladies at bingo they loved it.

  2. How much sauerkraut? It says one can, but no specific amount. I generally buy it in a big jar or a baggie from the deli.

      Sorry about that! I usually use a 14.25-ounce can but sometimes I don’t put all of it in. It’s really up to personal preference how much sauerkraut you want to add.
