RE: Who lives in Chicago near Vienna Beef?
LUVpastrami, I live a few miles from the plant but we can get the Pastrami at our local Food Store. I haven't tried it but it doesn't look that great to me. I just bought the Carnige(sp) Deli brand Pastrami at Costco and it was outstanding. I know there are COSTCOS in DFW area. Try It!( I steamed it rather than boiled /microwaved per package instructions)
I feel your pain, born & raised in Chicago, lived in Southlake Tx for ten years just came home in September.
