Pastrami - my eyes saw pastrami! I'm going to have to try this. I usually
pickle my own corned beef (or buffalo when we can get it) but I'm okay with
buying a store one and "fixing" it.
When we were in New York last summer we purchased a whole pastrami and froze
it and packed it back to Colorado - it's still there waiting for us to get
enough people who will truly enjoy it together!
