G-Man's Deli.........













Hi Everybody...
Here's hoping you had a Kick Ass Week-End!
I've been meaning to attempt to make some homemade Pastrami.
Upon researching the subject, it appeared that the marinade or brine for both Corned Beef and Pastrami was very similar. So why not use a store bought Corned Beef? I waited until they went on sale for St. Patty's Day, and I bought a couple of briskets for 1.99 a pound. The primary difference between the two deli-treats is that Pastrami is smoked, and it does not use pickling spices. The spices that was used for this recipe' rested upon the use of Smoked Paprika, fresh cracked Black Pepper, and Coriander.
1. Take the brisket and trim most of the fat.
2. Sprinkle VERY generously the Smoked Paprika and the other spices.
3. Wrap with FIVE layers of aluminum foil!
4. Bake in oven for 5 hours at 240 degrees.
5. Let cool at room temp.
6. Put in fridge for at least 12 hours.
VOILA!!!!!!!!

I also decided to try a turkey breast in the same manner.
It Worked GREAT, and it was surprisingly moist!!
I'm having a few fellas over today for a late lunch , and I thought that Pastrami or Turkey on Rye, would be mighty tasty. I also made a creamy Pasta, Red Pepper, and Cheese salad, along with a sweet and sour Red Cabbage, Beet, and Red Onion slaw!
Needless to say, I don't need to cook or buy lunch until at least Wednesday.

Corned beef, pastrami, on fresh rye, with Swiss, deli mustard - you have fired up my taste buds and my memory.

As a kid we would leave our Presbyterian church after Sunday service and go to the local kosher deli for some of their wonderful deli treats.

Thanks for the memories.
