Pastrami is made from the flavorful cut of beef known as the brisket. Located on the lower chest of a cow, this is a heavily used and well-muscled area, containing a lot of connective tissue. While this is no cut for high heat quick cooking methods, the brisket is transformed into one of the tastiest cuts if prepared in the low, slow method, and that’s exactly what pastrami does. Brined prior to cooking our Wagyu pastrami is rubbed with a delightful combination of salt and spices before being submerged to infuse it with flavor and add extra moisture. Once brined, this already tasty meat is then smoked over hardwood, adding to the deep complex flavor profile and helping develop even more complexity and nuance.
Every step of this process from the raising of the cattle, according to the specific and exacting demands of the Japanese Wagyu process, to the brining and smoking of this magnificent meat, work together to create some of the most delicious beef you’ll ever try. Incredibly marbled, tender, and juicy, start enjoying your go-to pastrami on rye like never before!
