Every now and then I find myself craving something that might not be the most 'diet friendly'. Today, with the largest craving for a hot mile-high pastrami on rye with Swiss cheese and caramelized onions, I picked up Foster Farms Turkey Pastrami. Foster Farms poultry is always 100% natural with no added hormones or steroids, no artificial flavors, coloring, chemical preservatives or any other synthetic ingredient.
Unlike regular beef, this turkey pastrami neither shrinks nor becomes extremely pliable when heated. The taste is absolutely marvelous, and far superior to most pre-packaged and pre-sliced pastramis. It's spicy, salty, and even a tad smoky. The texture, however, will not fool anyone who's ever had pastrami into thinking that this is made out of beef. It has the fine grain that only dark poultry meat contains. Still, it made an amazing sandwich, if not a precise replica, and was far better heated than most lean and thinly sliced luncheon pastramis that I've sampled before.
