A very popular delicatessen meat, pastrami is usually made from beef however sometimes is made from pork, mutton or turkey. The pastrami was originally created as a way to preserve meat before modern refrigeration. To make pastrami the raw meat is placed in brine, then partially dried, seasoned with various herbs and spices, smoked and steamed.
In North America, pastrami is typically sliced and served hot on rye bread, a classic New York deli sandwich (pastrami on rye), sometimes accompanied by coleslaw and Russian dressing. Pastrami and coleslaw are also combined in a Rachel sandwich, a variation of the popular Reuben sandwich that traditionally uses corned beef and sauerkraut.
