    “Emeril’s Favorite Pastrami Sandwich”


    We couldn’t resist including this recipe from Chef Emeril Lagasse. It’s his favorite “Manwich,” with the pastrami simmered in beer and grainy mustard.


    • 6 oz pastrami (we recommend Nations Best® First Cut, of course!)
    • 2 Tbsp whole-grain mustard
    • 4 oz beer
    • 3 slices onion, rings intact
    • 1 Tbsp oil
    • Salt & freshly-ground pepper, to taste
    • 2 slices rye bread or thick crusty brown bread


    1. Preheat a grill. Season onions with salt and pepper and brush with oil.
    2. In a small saucepan, combine beer and mustard and bring to a boil. Add pastrami and simmer for 3 minutes.
    3. Grill onions on both sides and toast bread on a cooler part of the grill. When all ingredients are heated, prepare sandwich.
