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.

Spicy Turkey Kabobs with Tangy Yogurt Sauce
This is a Gluten Free Recipe.

This recipe is under 300 calories per serving, and these no-gluten turkey kabobs are baked with garlic, mint and coriander. It’s a mouth-watering Middle Eastern dinner on a stick!

INGREDIENTS
KABOBS
1 (16-ounce) package JENNIE-O® Lean Ground Turkey
½ cup finely chopped yellow onion
1 tablespoon finely chopped garlic
1 tablespoon finely chopped fresh mint
2 teaspoons ground cumin
1 teaspoon ground coriander
½ teaspoon ground mustard
½ teaspoon salt, if desired
½ teaspoon black pepper

SAUCE
¾ cup plain low-fat yogurt
¼ cup Dijon mustard
2 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro
1 teaspoon chopped garlic
½ teaspoon lemon juice
½ teaspoon ground cumin
fresh cilantro, mint or parsley, for garnish

DIRECTIONS
1) For kabobs: Heat oven to 400°F. In large mixing bowl combine turkey, onion, 1 tablespoon garlic, mint, 2 teaspoons cumin, coriander, mustard, salt and black pepper. There will be about 2½ cups of mixture. Form mixture into balls, directly onto the skewers. Meatballs should be approximately 1½-inches across with the skewer running through the middle. Leave about ½-inch between each meatball. Place skewers on non-stick baking sheet. Skewers should be evenly spaced and not touching. Bake 10 to 12 minutes or until meatballs are well-done, 165°F as measured by a meat thermometer. Turn meatballs once halfway through cooking.
2) Prepare sauce while the kabobs are baking. In bowl of food processor or blender combine yogurt, mustard, cilantro, 1 teaspoon garlic, lemon juice and ½ teaspoon ground cumin. Blend until smooth. Sauce should be the consistency of thick cream.
3) To serve: Place 1 (12-inch) skewer on each plate. Drizzle with 1 tablespoon sauce and garnish with cilantro, mint or parsley.
* Always cook to an internal temperature of 165°F.

Dinner Tonight: Johnsonville Brat w/ Crinkle Fries

Wanted something easy to fix and filling. I made a Johnsonville Brat, first one in a long time! I usually have Turkey Brats but they were out of them at the store earlier so I decided to go with the Johnsonville Pork Brats. Just pan fried until brown, about 5 minutes, then added water the pan and boiled for 12 minutes. A really great tasting Brat! Served it on a Healthy Life Whole Grain Bun and topped with French’s Spicy Brown Mustard. Had Ore Ida Crinkle Fries as a side. For dessert later a Yoplait Delight 100 Calorie Chocolate Eclair Parfait.
