Re: Bristket Slicing TipsHi All -
Slice and ate my pastrami tonight EXCELENT! I was a god example of grain changing direction too. I kow we were dicussing this easrlier somewhere so Buzzard this ones for you (and any one who doesn't understand why we watch meat grain when we slice.
The begining slices were standing up perfectly for a tender juicey bite.
Near in the center of the brisket half meat the grain clearly starts going across the slices (good for floss but bad for sandwiches). A few sliced later and it's really turned into straight grain cuts. I had to start slicing his from the side.
Hope this helps sure was yummy! Second best pastrami I ever ate! The first being in the Kosher section of NYC!
