I’m a big fan of deli meats, but not such a big fan of deli roll. I’ve always preferred a more individual, tastier version of a deli roll, to make for easier plating, and (some) portion control. When I’m really feeling adventurous, I like to make these delicious, sticky pastrami twists, that have just a hint of sweetness to them. Disclosure: this post contains commissioned links.
These Sticky Pastrami Twists are easy to make, and addictive; you have been warned. It’s hard to stop eating them.
I used super basic ingredients that I already have at home, like duck sauce, mustard and honey. I’m not the biggest fan of using duck sauce when I cook in general, and 1 jar lasts a really long time in my fridge, but it’s definitely a good thing to use on these yummy twists.
The reason I put pastrami in these twists is because it’s the form of cold cuts I like most. However, this will work well with most other deli meats, if not better. Sliced pastrami is thin and delicate, and it can be difficult to work with in this manner. Beef fry (facon) or corned beef does work better with these twists, but I still choose pastrami because I know my family enjoys it.
If you want to make this sticky pastrami twists even sweeter and stickier, instead of using egg wash on the pastry, take 1 Tablespoon of duck sauce and use that as your coating. It adds great flavor and color!
