RE: Carnegie Deli pastrami . . . from CostCo
I recently bought a package of the new lean Carnegie pastrami. To me it is not as flavorful as the original product, but still much better than anything else given that I'm also in a deli-deprived area. It wasn't dry, just lacked a bit of flavor.
I suspect Costco altered it to meet the taste of most folks, since it is now offered as a prepared sandwich.
