Keto Reuben Sliders | Keto Corned Beef Hash

This recipe idea comes from many memories of living in Southern California and a little bar/restuarant I frequented and even worked at for a while. It was called McDini’s Baja.

Irish/Mexican pubs were quite the rage in those days so there were a lot of places that were doing mash-ups of Irish and Mexican food. The Reuben tacos were always my favorite and, when my daughter got older they were hers as well.

So a lot of memories are wrapped up in these tasty tacos!

It is also a fabulous way to use up your leftover corned beef if you are tired of just reheating.

I know if your family is anything like mine and hate leftovers, recipes like this are a godsend!

Now, getting my now husband on board with these tacos was not as easy. He never went to McDini’s with us. He had zero fond memories of the food they served, and for sure thought the idea of a corned beef taco was super weird.

But, once he actually had one in his face he had to rethink that whole situation.

I swear, I will never understand why this man doubts me!

So if you have a family member like him, that just thinks this idea is too wacky bet them that I am right and then sit back and watch their faces as they give these tacos a try.

Six overhead photos of the process of making Keto Reuben Tacos.


In a small bowl, combine the mayo, hot sauce, horseradish, onion powder, and Tamari. 
Set aside.

Heat olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat and cook the onion a few minutes, until it begins to soften and turn translucent.


Add the chopped corned beef to the skillet.
Cook, stirring occasionally until it’s heated through and starting to brown.
Remove from the heat and fill each tortilla with some of the corned beef, topped with sauerkraut, drizzle with the dressing, and sprinkle with chopped cilantro.

Can I use regular tortillas to make these Reuben tacos?
Unfortunately there are a ton of carbs in regular flour or corn tortillas. If you don’t want to make the homemade keto tortillas I linked to (they have 1.5 net carbs per tortilla) there are a few storebought versions you can try. I have to admit they don’t taste as good, in my opinion, but they are great if you are short on time. You can find them here. Make sure to change your net carbs if you are tracking them.
Can I use storebought corned beef?
One of the things I do is grab extra corned beef roasts at the store when they go on sale after St Patricks Day. Since I make my corned beef in the Instant Pot it is super easy to make a few (minus the veggies), chop or shred them, then freeze in 1 pound packages to save for the times I am craving corned beef hash, Reuben sliders, Reuben tacos, etc. But, I have been known to grab a pound or two of corned beef from the deli in a pinch!
How can I store leftover Keto Reuben Tacos?
That can be a problem. Storing the whole taco can lead to mushy tortillas so I would suggest you store each element individually in air tight containers in the fridge.

Last thoughts about Keto Reuben Tacos

If you are still somewhat on the fence about this recipe, thinking, “Bobbi, you must really have a screw loose if you are talking about making tacos out of corned beef”, please trust me. 
I swear I would not lead you down a dark path! I always shoot for the delicous path, I promise!
Also, just to throw a teensy bit of health advice into the mix, fermented food, aka sauerkraut, is super good for your digestive system. It provides probiotics and vitamin K2, which are known for their health benefits, and many other nutrients. Eating sauerkraut may help you strengthen your immune system, improve your digestion, reduce your risk of certain diseases, and even lose weight.
So make these tacos for your health! 
You’re welcome ❤
