  • Pastrami Melt Salad

    Last week hubby and I took a bike ride to a cafe, and I ate exactly what I was craving, which was a pastrami melt sandwich on rye. (My first bread in months.) It was delicious, and I got the idea to recreate all the crucial flavors without the bread, so here's what I did:

    In a shallow baking dish, I layered pastrami, swiss cheese, thin-sliced red onion, yellow mustard, mayonaisse and a sprinkle of caraway seeds. (Rye flour really has no special flavor; it's the caraway seeds that give it the distinctive taste.) I repeated this in three layers. While this was all melting together in the oven, I shredded up a bunch of spinach. Then I slid the pastrami layers out of the dish on top of the spinach.

    This got a big thumbs up from hubby (and me). Use whatever proportions you like.

    I yearn for food porn. This does sounds amazing. Pictures would help.
    I do something similar for making a cuban. <drool>

                YES that pastrami mix sounds superawesome. I luv rye bread too, just b/c of those funky seeds. What a good idea.

                HAve you ever had those seeds in an Indian restaurant? they put a little dish of them w/ sugar. Tastes good, for a treat. I've seen those candy coated ones too but they look like they would taste like tic tacs. bleh.

                      I did a post on it for my blog. This was before I really went Primal, I'd have to work on how to make this more 100% than not.

                      The cuban is basically ham, roasted pork, (sometimes salami) swiss cheese, pickles, mayo and mustard. I guess you'd just source out the best options for those and put them on top of your favorite lettuce.
