Default What do I do with a pastrami?

Angela found this piece of meat in with the ham and turkey that stays it is
pastrami. She wanted it. It is about an inch high and in length maybe the
size of my hand. I assume it is already cooked. Can I just heat it and cut
it in slices? The only pastrami I am familiar with is sliced for
sandwiches. I did try to search but only came up with recipes for making
it. Seems this stuff is already made.

Thanks!

I buy pastrami from time to time. I use it for anything - sandwiches, as the
protein in salads. It is a nice addition to a party platter, as is or rolled
around asparagus spears or a pickle. Also nice rolled around sun dried
tomatoes and fetta. You could make it into fritters with gluten free flour.
Nice with tomato sauce (ketchup) that way. Because it came in a piece you
could heat it slowly in the micro and have it with vegetables and a pepper
sauce.

I don't really know anything about pepper sauce or fritters. Must be
something that's not common here. The only fritters I know about are sweet.
Like apple or corn. But Angela does like ketchup.

Use the same batter as for sweet fritters but cut up pieces of meat and put
in the batter as opposed to coating individual pieces. Then cook in a pan
like you are cooking a pancake. So any basic fritter recipe would do minus
the sugar if any.

Any sauce or gravy over pastrami would be nice. A nice mustard sauce
perhaps. With garlic mash...

There are two kinds of pastrami I know of. One is sort of like corned
beef, where you have to cook it really long to get it tender. The other
is already cooked and ready to eat. Just slice it. I think if you study
the package it came in carefully, they should tell you which kind it is.

Yikes! That sounds vile. I have never made fritters. I believe the batter
contains egg and maybe dairy so not something I would make. I just can't
imagine meat fried in a batter.

I generally don't use any sauces with our food. I guess that's just the way
I was brought up. My mom never made any sauces. I was watching a show on
TV the other day and they were talking about sauces. Went on and on about
all the sauces you could use with chicken. My mom pretty much only used
salt, pepper and maybe parsley. I do have other seasonings but just never
got into sauces. Except perhaps for spaghetti sauce. We generally don't
eat gravy either.

This appears to be cooked. In fact when she picked it up, I thought it was
ham. Are you supposed to heat it to eat it? She wants it for dinner
tonight.

Do they give you any sort of heating instructions on the package? I think
it can be served cold, but I personally prefer it warmed up myself and
served with mustard.

Hot or cold. Often used in sandsiches, like corned beef, with mustard, o
it can be used in dishes that call for ham of smoked pork meat by kosher
cookd, s it is a beef product, so can be made kosher. It is a traditional
deli meat and is used that way, ususlally.

Yeah. That's the way I'm familiar with.

Probably not. My mom made fried chicken for a few years when I was really
young but she just put flour on it. I'm not really old enough to remember.
I do remember her making fried okra and I liked that. The only fried
chicken I remember eating after that was KFC and really I tried to avoid the
chicken. I would eat the potatoes and biscuits but I never liked fried
chicken.

I don't think so. I don't really like most sauces. If I get something in a
restaurant with a sauce, I usually scrape it all off. Not that I would
order anything like that these days. Never know what might be in the sauce.

I found out it is turkey pastrami. Probably won't be very good. I tend to
avoid stuff made of turkey that is pretending to be other meats, but she was
so excited about it that I bought it. She has come off of a week of eating
little more than chicken broth with chicken and rice, due to a sore throat
that the Dr. said was probably a virus.

And then yesterday she was in the hospital with more urinary problems. It's
worse this time and the PA doesn't believe the diagnosis of impacted feces
causing the problem. So she has to see a specialist. She is stressing out
over that so right now I will just buy her whatever she wants.
