The famous New York delis serve warm pastrami â€“ a combination of lean and fatty â€“ on seeded rye with mustard. In Los Angeles, the most best known classic delis add Cole slaw and Swiss. Weâ€™ll happily chow down on either one!
- Cider vinegar
- coleslaw mix
- seeded rye bread
- spicy brown mustard
- Swiss cheese
- thinly sliced pastrami
- Combine the coleslaw mix, mayonnaise, vinegar, sugar and salt in a bowl
- Place 1 slice of bread onto each of 4 plates. Spread one side of each of the remaining 4 slices with 2 teaspoons of the mustard.
- Heat pastrami in an open skillet over medium heat just until hot, being careful not to overcook it.
- Top each of the bread slices on the plates with 1/4 of the hot pastrami then top each with 2 slices of cheese and 1/4 of the coleslaw. Set the remaining bread slices, mustard side down, on top of each sandwich. Cut each sandwich in half crosswise and serve immediately.
