Ultimate Pastrami Sandwiches Recipe

Publisher Photo
This peerless pastrami sandwich was adapted from a menu favorite at Primanti Bros. Restaurant in Pittsburgh. Our Test Kitchen took the basic ingredients—grilled cold cuts, cheese, fried potatoes and tomatoes—and created a tasty replica, including our version of their secret coleslaw topping.—Country Woman Test Kitchen, Greendale, Wisconsin
