Before the sandwich, I wanted to provide some info on the beef rib I've been posting about. The roast in the header shot and the steak from yesterdays post came from two different whole rib roasts (5 total) that I bought on sale from Krogers at $6.99/lb before Thanksgiving and $5.99/lb before Christmas. They were all choice grade from Iowa Beef Packers (IBP) and were the best I've ever cooked and maybe ever eaten. Their meat also gets bragged about on the BBQ forums and I will definitely seek it out from now on - almost makes me want to live in Iowa.
Now for the sandwich. I had just a few slices of homemade pastrami in the fridge along with some of the good marble rye, Swiss cheese, and homemade mustard from New Years day. So says I, what can I turn these into? Back in our skiing days, Bev, decided to try a grilled pastrami sandwich for breakfast and it quickly became the go to meal prior to a fun day on the slopes.
It’s just bread-cheese-meat-cheese-mustard-bread, bread buttered and grilled in a skillet with a lid, to help melt the cheese.
We only exchange Christmas gifts with a couple of folks and this year recieved the perfect gift for us. We seem to always need multiple warming devices, especially for lake parties and our friends Kathy and Ashley solved our problem with this gift. It's a Bella Cucina Triple Slow Cooker, with three 2 1/2 quart cookers. We had two of the three in service for our New Years party.
