Reuben Egg Roll Bowl Recipe
This Reuben is quite possibly one of my favorite sandwiches of all time. However, there is nothing low carb or keto about rye bread.

This Keto Reuben Egg Roll Bowl recipe is a delicious way to enjoy corned beef, great for leftovers, and an even better keto meal prep recipe.
Reuben Egg Roll Bowl Ingredients
Corned Beef and Coleslaw: To make six servings of this Reuben egg roll bow recipe, you will need 1 lb of sliced corned beef and 1 lb of shredded coleslaw mix from your favorite butcher or local grocery store.
Dairy: Add 1 cup Swiss cheese and two tablespoons of butter to the egg roll bowl mix to continue building on those Reuben flavors we all know and love.
Pro-Tip: If you are looking to make this bowl dairy free, you can use dairy-free swiss cheese and a dairy-free butter substitute.
Flavor and Garnish: 1 tablespoon caraway seeds one tablespoon scallions
Homemade Russian Dressing Ingredients
If you’re a fan of Thousand Island dressing, you will love this Russian dressing just as much … if not more!
Both Thousand Island and Russian dressing have the same base, but Russian dressing kicks it up a notch by having a slight kick.
To make Russian dressing, you will need ½ cup of mayonnaise, ¼ cup of Alternasweets spicy ketchup, 4 oz of a small dill pickle, 1 tbsp of sauerkraut,1 tsp of Worcestershire sauce, and1 tsp Apple cider vinegar.
Now, although I personally think you will regret it because this homemade dressing is so good. I do have a time-saving tip for you.
If you are in a pinch or looking to save time, you can cut a corner by using store-bought thousand island dressing instead.

Reuben Egg Roll Bowl Tips
- These egg roll bowls are best enjoyed right away but leftovers are just as delicious!
- This recipe is easy to double or triple as needed if you are serving a crowd or bringing this to a potluck dinner or party.
- Some people might enjoy more dressing so serve up your bowls with a drizzle of dressing and the option to add more.
- If not everyone in the house is keto, serve up your bowls with a side of lightly toasted rye bread so they can have the option of turning it into a classic Reuben sandwich.
What is the difference between a Reuben and a Rachel?
If you want to get technical, a Reuben topped with coleslaw instead of sauerkraut is known as a Rachel. Most people think that switching out the corned beef for turkey is a Rachel, but I beg to differ.
Anyway, you enjoy your Reuben or Rachel or Ross for that matter (Friends joke) is fine by me!
Is a Reuben sandwich made with Corned Beef or Pastrami?
If you are looking to make a classic or traditional Reuben sandwich, you need corned beef.
The classic Reuben is made with corned beef, sauerkraut, and Russian or thousand island dressing and served on marble or regular rye bread.
What is healthier Corned Beef or Pastrami?
Truthfully, they are about the same.
Both corned beef and pastrami have similar nutritional elements and makeup regarding protein and fat content.
However, where they differ is in sodium content. Corned beef tends to be higher in sodium than pastrami based on how it is prepared.
So, if sodium or salt intake matters in your diet I’d recommend substituting corned beef with pastrami and preparing the recipe the same way.
Storing Leftover Reuben Egg Roll Bowls
I hope you find this keto creation as satisfying as I did. For those days when you just want something warm and comforting, this dish can’t be beaten.
Personally, I like making this recipe to enjoy and then pack up in these glass reusable meal prep containers for easy grab-and-go meals throughout the week.
It has that indulgent flavors that make you think you’re cheating on keto. Don’t worry, and I swear this can be a healthy part of any low carb regimen.
