While shopping at Publix yesterday I noticed they are carrying Pastrami and Corned Beef from Carnegie Deli. They are 6-8oz packages or may be 12oz (I'll have to check again) They are unsliced and sell for what seems to be a reasonable price of $6.99. They are in the refrigerated meat section along with the hams etc. Has anyone tried these? I was tempted but would like to hear from someone that's tried them.
I tried the pastrami and it was pretty good. Also bought the pot roast and corned beef but haven't tried yet. I thought they'd be a good alternate to take out when running late and having no time to cook.
They used to have the Pastrami at Costco in bigger packages and I liked it, but they switched to a different vendor and that was not so good.
I'd say worth a shot, just don't anticipate you are getting an exact duplicate of fresh, NY deli pastrami. It isn't that, but it is decent.
