Let’s explore this classic American sandwich.

What is Pastrami?

Pastrami is a meat that’s been cured, smoked, and finished with an intense flavor profile. It comes from smoked beef brisket or lamb that has been brined in salt, garlic, and spices such as coriander or mustard seed. The end result is a juicy and flavorful meat that goes great in sandwiches!

The Perfect Combination

A hot pastrami sandwich is the perfect combination of crunchy bread and juicy pastrami. It’s usually served on rye bread with mustard and pickles on the side, although some people like to add other condiments like mayonnaise. The cheese is optional, but highly recommended! A classic hot pastrami sandwich can be made in minutes using just a few simple ingredients – making it an easy lunchtime favorite for busy folks everywhere.

How To Make A Hot Pastrami Sandwich

The key to any good hot pastrami sandwich is quality ingredients. Start with your favorite thick rye bread or French roll, spread on some yellow mustard (or spicy brown if you prefer!), top it with generous amounts of thinly sliced hot pastrami (from your favorite deli), then finish off with some pickles for an extra kick! Now you have a classic American hot pastrami sandwich that will satisfy your cravings all year round!
