A pastrami sandwich from Katz’s Delicatessen

Pastrami on rye is a classic sandwich made famous in the Jewish kosher delicatessens of New York City. It was first created in 1888 by Sussman Volk, who served it at his deli on Delancey Street in New York City.

Sussman Volk immigrated from Lithuania in the late 1800s. He opened a small butcher shop on New York’s Lower East Side. He befriended another immigrant, this one from Romania, who he allowed to store meat in his large icebox. In exchange for his kindness, the friend gave the recipe for pastrami to Volk, who began to serve it to his customers. It proved so popular that in 1888, Volk opened a delicatessen at 88 Delancey Street, one of the first delis in New York City, where he served the meat on rye bread.

It became a favorite at other delis, served on rye bread and topped with spicy brown mustard. Delis in New York City, like Katz’s Delicatessen, have become known for their Pastrami on rye sandwiches. In her description of the book on Katz’s, Florence Fabricant, the noted food critic for the New York Times, described the volume “as overstuffed as Katz’s pastrami on rye.”

The pastrami on rye sandwich has come to be a symbol of the classic New York Jewish deli, being featured in delis around the world attempting to recreate the ambience of the original New York delis, in cities such as Los Angeles, Buenos Aires, Boca Raton, Florida, and San Diego, California. The classic, which some consider to be New York’s signature sandwich, consists simply of sliced pastrami, placed on rye bread, and topped with spicy brown mustard. It is usually accompanied by a Kosher dill pickle on the side.

Variations
Corned beef and pastrami on rye may be prepared using rye bread, pastrami, corned beef, cole slaw, and Russian dressing. Preparation involves placing both meats on a slice of rye bread and topping it with coleslaw. Russian dressing may be added to the top slice of bread.

Pastrami, lettuce, and tomato (PLT) may be prepared using two slices of toasted sourdough bread, mayonnaise, pastrami, lettuce, tomato slices. Preparation involves placing the pastrami on a toasted slice of sourdough bread and topping it with the lettuce and tomato slices. Mayonnaise may be spread on the second slice of sourdough, and placed on top of the sandwich.

Today’s Menu: Sweet Italian Turkey Sausage w/ Baked Fries

 

For Breakfast this morning I had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Cool morning out there this morning , 39 degrees with a cool wind. We had a high of 67 degrees and sunny, very windy out though. Not a thing going on today. Mom feels a lot better today. For me I was a slug all day! Did some work on the computer and then caught up with shows I had recorded. For Dinner tonight it’s Sweet Italian Turkey Sausage w/ Baked Fries.

 

I used one of my favorites, the healthy and delicious Jennie O Lean Sweet Italian Turkey Sausages. I bought a package of them at Meijer the other day. I prepared a few of them for our Dinner tonight. I pan fried them, using Pam w/ Olive Oil Cooking Spray and no oil needed. Heated the pan on medium and cooked a total of about 14 minutes, turning the Sausages occasionally. They fry up plump and brown, as always Jennie – O Products always have that fresh taste to them. The Sausages have 160 calories and 0 carbs per Sausage. I served them on Aunt Millie’s Live Carb Smart Hot Dog Buns and topped with French’s Spicy Brown Mustard. Love these!

 

I also baked some Ore Ida Crinkle Cut Fries. Served them with a side of Hunt’s Ketchup for dipping. For Dessert/Snack later a 100 Calorie Mini Bag of Snyder’s Pretzels with Diet Dr. Pepper to drink.

Eggs and Flour…..

To keep eggs from popping when frying, mix a tablespoon of flour in the hot grease and break the eggs into this. You will also find that the flour gives the eggs a better flavor.

Fried Walleye Fillet w/ Roasted Asparagus and Baked Potato

Today’s: Menu: Fried Walleye Fillet w/ Roasted Asparagus, Baked Potato, and Baked Garlic Bread Loaf

 

For Breakfast this morning I had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. 78 degrees and rain on and off all day. A good day to stay in and that’s what I did. After my Tea I did a load of laundry. Then off to lay down for a while. My Sinuses are running wild with this change in the weather and I’ve had a bad headache since late last night. Nothing I can do except wait it out, it will pass. For Dinner tonight I prepared Fried Walleye Fillet w/ Roasted Asparagus and Baked Potato.

 

I purchased the Walleye at Meijer and it in the freezer. I placed it in the fridge overnight to thaw. To prepare it I first rinsed the fillets in cold water and patted them dry with paper towel. Then to prepare them I seasoned them with McCormick Grinder Sea Salt and Black Pepper Medley. Put the fillets in a Hefty Plastic Bag and added some Progresso Italian Style Bread Crumbs, sealed the bag and shook till the fillet was well coated. I then fried them in Extra Light Olive Oil on medium heat, about 4 minutes per side till golden brown! I love Walleye, as I do most Fish. Walleye is so meaty and has such a fresh flavor!

 

For one side dish I prepared Roasted Asparagus for one side. To prepare the Asparagus I just needed Extra Virgin Olive Oil, Cloves Roasted Asparagus Garlic (minced), Sea Salt, Freshly grated Black Pepper, Lemon Juice, and Shredded Parmesan Cheese. Rinse clean the asparagus. Break the tough ends off of the asparagus and discard. Lay the asparagus spears out in a single layer in a baking dish or a foil-covered roasting pan. Drizzle olive oil over the spears, roll the asparagus back and forth until they are all covered with a thin layer of olive oil. Sprinkle with minced garlic, salt, and pepper. Rub over the asparagus so that they are evenly seasoned. Place pan in oven and cook for approximately 8-10 minutes, depending on how thick your asparagus spears are, until tender when pierced with a fork. Drizzle with a little fresh lemon juice and shredded Parm Cheese before serving.

 

For another side I prepared a Baked Potato. Seasoned that with the McCormick Grinder Sea Salt and Peppercorn Medley, and topped with I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter. Then I also baked a loaf of La Baguetterie Roasted Garlic Oval Bread. Perfect Bread with any Dish! Then for Dessert/Snack later a bowl of Skinny Pop – Pop Corn and a Diet Peach Snapple.
