One of the ingredients I need to make pastrami is tender quick, and of course, I can't find it in my town. I am not going to order it from the internet, because I only need about 2 tablespoons. I came across some jerky cure that I have laying around. The ingredients on it are Salt, and Sodium Nitrite (.62%.) Would I be able to use this in place of the tender quick? If so, does anybody know if I could just swap them straight across, or would I have use more or less of the cure? The cure packets are for 1 lb of meat, and I have 2 of them. Any help is greatly appreciated, I am new to this stuff.
