Pastrami Recipe

Posted by Karen Richards on

The beef we use is from the West Country and is cured in a highly flavoured brine and then air-dried before being cold-smoked over beech wood chips.

We make sure it's then gently and slowly cooked which makes it beautifully tasty for all types of uses.

Here's our recipe for a Reuben Sandwich which is a classic American grilled sandwich using a sliced cheese, sauerkraut and Russian dressing.

Russian dressing is a spicier version of a Thousand Island style dressing.

Interestingly, it can be associated with kosher-style delicatessens, but in fact the sandwich isn't kosher as it uses both meat and cheese together.

The perfect comfort food for cooler autumn days.We are delighted to have won a Taste of the West Gold Award 2020 for our Dorset Pastrami. It's a great accolade to the quality behind our English charcuterie products, not to mention the taste!
