One of my new favorite things: cooking up a big Corned Beef in the Instant Pot, and then turning it into tacos! (Yes, I said tacos!!) Or more specifically, Reuben sandwiches on a tortilla. It’s not my original idea, credit for that goes to my BF Trilo. He discovered corned beef tacos and quesadillas years ago through local food trucks, and has been a fan ever since. He thought the rest of the classic Reuben sandwich components would make for a great taco. Once we tried to make it at home, Reuben Corned Beef tacos have become a regular meal at our place.
So of course, the first time we made it, there was a nagging question that my BF Trilo and I kept asking ourselves: “yes, but can we do RYE tortillas?” (spoiler: the answer was yes!)
As an Italian, I don’t have much experience making tortillas, so they turned out less than gorgeous, but they were still tasty. However, if you don’t want to take the time to make your own tortillas, small “street-size” flour tortillas work just as well.
For toppings I went for traditional Reuben Sandwich condiments: sauerkraut, shredded gruyère cheese, and Russian dressing. I topped it with a bit of red cabbage, thinly sliced, to give it some crunch.
Reuben corned beef tacos are my new favorite meal!
