Turkey Pastrami

Debbi Ezer

Pastrami is a notoriously controversial issue. In other words, if you buy it in the supermarket - it is delicious, but who knows what's inside? So here is a great recipe for homemade pastrami, which is very easy to make and delicious to serve either hot or cold, particularly recommended for serving as an appetizer at a meaty buffet. Turkey pastrami is a particularly healthy homemade dish - because you know exactly what's inside – and of course much more delicious in general. Preparing pastrami is a process that takes about one day to get the best results. But at the end of the recipe, I will provide you with a trick to shorten the process.
