Out of Control Rubin

We love a great Reuben and we really love exploring our Oregon rivers along with the communities around them. So our sandwich recipe has a delicious local twist, with Choi’s White Napa Kimchi, Seoul Kimchi Sweet and Spicy Hot Sauce, La Mariposa Chubut cheese and Portland Ketchup, all on toasty grilled MoC Marble Rye Bread. Yum!
