Sounds STRANGE, but it truly was delish! I will share my version of the recipe that I made. I take recipes as starting places. The original recipe called for Corned beef only. I like fresh sliced meat from the deli. And, yes I am slightly a snob and prefer Boars Head, because they don’t put as much junk in their meat. I way prefer any freshly sliced deli meat over canned–as the recipe called for. The book if you are interested in checking it out is Keto Diet Make Ahead Freezer Meals & Snacks. Click Here to buy.
Cheesy Rueben Soup
1 Onion medium–think slivery slices
3 tablespoons butter or Ghee–which I used with a touch of butter to finish
2 stalks celery, diced
1/2 lb corned beef chopped
4 cups beef broth, or 1 32 oz box of beef stock
1 cup sauerkraut (Silver Floss Krisp Kraut)
1 teaspoon caraway seeds, seeds
1 tsp sea salt
3/4 teaspoon black pepper
1 cups Swiss cheese (did swiss blend), grated
2 cups heavy cream
Sauté sliced onions in Ghee until soft, and starting to become translucent.
Cook, averred on high for 4 hours, or on low for 6 to 8 hours. Add Swiss cheese or other white cheeses and cream and for another hour.
