  • Pastrami is typically BEEF, though you can get turkey pastrami and that is really yummy also, just milder. No, nothing at all like ham. Have you tried Corned Beef before? It's very similar. Infact they are just about the same thing, except I believe Pastrami goes though a bit more of a process and it's always peppered.

    Pastrami is pretty much my all time favorite lunch meat. So yummy with mustard!(so it's kinda like ham that way) Give it a try, but I'd make sure and try it fresh from a deli first. If you like that you can start trying packaged brands.
