It’s hard to believe summer is nearly a fait accompli, and soon we’ll be counting the days until winter break. Getting meals on the table in short order can be a challenge, so this week #SundaySupper has culled an assortment of quick and easy meals to get you off on the right foot. Tammi over at Momma’s Meals and Gwen from Simply Healthy Family are hosting this week’s event, and my contribution to the table is a platter of these super tasty hot pastrami sliders.

Rah rah ree, kick ‘em in the knee! Rah rah rass, kick ‘em in the other knee! On a cold summer’s day in SF, after a long practice, we must look like the sorriest bunch of cheerleaders anyone has ever seen!

Now that we’re in the spirit … Did you know pastrami found its way to us via Romania, where it was a popular wind-dried meat? (Oxford Companion to Food 1999.)  The process has evolved over the years, and now it’s typically brined in a spiced mixture, then smoked or steamed. Thanks to the modern deli, though, all that hard work is already done for us!

The idea for these hot pastrami sliders started when my buddy Nicole over at Daily Dish Recipes whipped up some Saucy Roast Beef and Swiss Sliders.  After I made these, the wheels began to turn… the possibilities seemed endless! I then noticed a ham and cheese version all over the place. Soon I could think of nothing but these hot pastrami sliders.

Note, I used King’s Hawaiian Savory Butter rolls; however, feel free to experiment with other rolls–I picked these because they’re just the right size, and conveniently, one package makes one recipe. Prepare the sandwiches right in your baking pan, slather the buttery sauce on top, sprinkle with a generous amount of caraway seeds, and your hot pastrami sliders will be ready in a New York minute. Just serve them with some Russian dressing for dipping and a heaping pile of these refrigerator pickles.

There’s not much too this. Assemble the sandwiches on a baking pan, slather the buttery sauce on top, then sprinkle with caraway seeds.

About 20 minutes later, you’ll have cheesy, pastrami perfection.

Recipe type: Sandwich
Cuisine: American
Serves: 6
Ingredients
  • 1 pkg (12 count) King's Hawaiian Savory Butter Rolls
  • 12 slices pastrami
  • 6 slices smoked provolone or baby Swiss cheese, cut in half
Sauce
  • ¼ cup butter, melted
  • 2 tsp Dijon mustard
  • 2 tsp onion powder
  • 1 tsp Worcestershire sauce
  • 1-2 tbsp caraway seeds
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 350F.
  2. Cut rolls in half, and arrange the bottoms on a baking dish. Fold the pastrami slices to fit the roll, and place on the bottom of each roll. Top that with a half slice of cheese, folded over, then replace the top to each roll.
  3. Whisk together the sauce ingredients in a small bowl, then brush over each slider until all the sauce is gone. Generously sprinkle the tops with the caraway seeds.
  4. Cover tightly with foil, and bake for about 15 minutes (or until the cheese is melted). Remove foil, then return to the oven for another 5 minutes or until the rolls start to crisp.

If I could lick the screen and taste this, I would. I am not ashamed. LOL I love pastrami and your sliders are perfect. I found that Schar has a great gluten free bread that allows me to once again enjoy a sandwich of this caliber. YUM
