Pastrami Reuben

This is the new best sandwich in Seattle. (And you still can’t have one.) It is my standard favorite grilled pastrami Reuben with chopped liver, swiss, homemade Russian dressing, and sauerkraut on buttered Jewish rye, but this time I used pastrami made out of shortrib.

I have written many times before about how much I love short rib, so when I found large boneless slabs of the super marbled cut, I bought about 12 pounds and started the curing process.

What came out after smoking was amazing! The short rib has much finer marbling than any other cut I have used before, leading to a very tender, moist, and lucious pastrami without the large hunks of fat that are usually trimmed off of my other batches.

Another benefit—it is cheaper than the beef plate and brisket I have used in the past. Win!

    SO GOOD! I agree, I like it better than the pastrami you were making with the beef plate. We put some on our grilled cheese today. (Burrata, tomato, basil, parm crust, Essential Columbia bread, pepper, 18 yr. old balsamic)
