Real Pastrami Another HUGE Score W/Qview

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 

Well, my new found Butcher friend had these marked down from $2.99 to $.99. WOW, and they are brisket flats, not beef rounds.

The marinade. Vidalia Onion marinade, Webers black Peppercorn rub, and a dash of syrup for good measure. I did the fry pan salt test and it past without soaking.

This is the marinade.

All coated and in the fridge till tomorrow night.

Thanks for watching.

If you've never done Pastrami, you owe it to yourself and your family!


I take the Peppercorn Melange and put it in a ziploc and beat the snot out of the peppercorns with a rolling pin.

That course pepper then gets rubbed onto the corned beef victim, then I smoke it.

The peppercorns seem to carmelize into a transcendent, gastronomic nirvana. I am not a professional cook like you are, so I don't know all the chemical and alchemy stuff, but with great help like pros and champs like you, I muddle through and discover some great stuff - like this wonderful Pastrami.

Pastrami on! all my Kosher friends! It is like buttah - talk amongst yourselves.

PS - You aren't supposed to eat this stuff - it isn't "healthy". Notice all the fit, gentile guys croak at 45? The old Jewish guys (who eat Pastrami everyday in Ruebens) live to be 94. Pass the Pastrami.
