This recipe is for 3 lbs of meat. If you make a larger batch just adjust to your taste.

1 1/4 Tbs mortons TQ Or 1/2 tsp cure #1

1/2 Tbs salt per lb of meat. 1 1/2 Tbs for this batch, you can adjust if you use the TQ

2 Tbs SPC....Soy Protein Concentrate.

1/2 cup water

1 Tbs light or dark brown sugar

1 1/2 Tbs ground black pepper

1 Tbs coriander seed

1 Tbs ground coriander

1 Tbs garlic powder

17-19mm colagen casings

Got the pastrami sticks done and on a 2 hour bloom. Will cut later and do a couple day fridge rest so the flavor can marry.

I wonder...   how do you think they would turn out if you didn't stuff them...   used a jerky gun and smoked them flat on racks instead of hanging...  

just wondering?
