Pumpernickel and Pastrami
a delicious marriage,
a slightly different preparation and presentation
We used flat iron pastrami in this dish although traditional pastrami will probably produce tastier results for next time. It was a good idea that didn't live up to expectations. Trials take time. Originals are such for a reason. As for pumpernickel pasta, it fills both roles, traditional and trial. Pumpernickel pasta as a base for a non-traditional reuben? Delicious.
