A Fabulous Grilled Pastrami Sandwich Sandwich To Try Now

Here it is: the mother of all sandwiches, the pastrami sandwich! This sandwich was so much fun to make. If you’re interested in making a project of it, you can follow the directions below for making your own pastrami. It’s an undertaking, but it’s absolutely worth it if you’re up for the challenge. If not, you can make a fabulous sandwich with store bought pastrami.

As you may know if you’ve been following on my sandwich journey, I love using home cooked meat for my sandwiches. This pastrami was my biggest undertaking yet! We started with a whole brisket from Porter Road, and it is a beautiful piece of meat. Then, I followed Neal’s Pastrami Recipe to turn it into incredible pastrami lunch meat.

If you’re not making your own, pick up some store bought pastrami. You’ll also need rye bread, swiss cheese coleslaw, Marinated Onions, pickles, and yellow mustard. On one piece of rye bread, spread some yellow mustard, add two pieces of cheese, top with coleslaw and pickles. On the other piece of bread, add two pieces of cheese, the pastrami, and marinated onions. Close the sandwich and you are ready to start griddling.

In a nonstick pan, add the butter and light olive oil. I find that this fat combo gives the absolute best crunchy result. Once it is hot, add in the sandwich and cook until golden brown on each side, about four minutes. Remove from the heat, cut it in half and enjoy with your favorite chips!
