I was at my local WW yesterday and was at the Deli and seen the corned beef and pastrami was 7.98 a pound. I was wondering at what type of meat do they use for deli meat? It was 3 or 4 inches thick ( maybe more) The display package looked to be around 15 pounds and was cryo vac. At them prices buying the whole thing is kinda expensive ..
So for home made Pastrami whats the best type and cut to make it out of?? I tried a pre-packaged corned beef and was not impressed with the final product, left a lot to be desired. And was quite a a bit different then Deli sliced meat.
I like starting with the "better" ingredients so I can have a better finished product. So let me know whats the best meat to do Pastrami with in your opinion......
