    January 14 - National Hot Pastrami Sandwich Day


    Pastrami has been an American favorite gourmet recipes since it was first served in New York delis in 1887.


    Like corned beef, pastrami was originally created as a way to preserve meat before modern refrigeration. For pastrami, the raw meat is brined, partly dried, seasoned with various herbs and spices, then smoked and steamed.


    In the United States, although beef plates are the traditional cut of meat for making pastrami, it is now common to see pastrami made from beef brisket, beef round, and turkey.


    Pastrami is a popular delicatessen meat usually made from beef in Turkey and also traditionally in Romania from pork and mutton.


    Pastrami is the classic deli meat that most people love; especially in a sandwich. Some people enjoy a hot pastrami sandwich for lunch or for dinner.


    Make sure you have a hot pastrami sandwich to celebrate National Hot Pastrami Day! Enjoy
