National Hot Pastrami Sandwich Day

In case you did not know, today is National Hot Pastrami  Sandwich Day. What I found out is pastrami  meat was created as a way to preserve meat prior to modern refrigeration. The beef is brined, dried, seasoned.smoked and then steamed. It was first served in New York Deli's in the 1880's.  I would guess first served at Katz Deli but I did not google that to find out.

I had no idea the meat went through that many processes to it's final product. Gotta admit I love it though!

There is your meaningless tidbit for the day, now go out and eat pastrami! Happy weekend :)

That's all
