Thin, flat pieces of lean beef, taken from the plate, brisket, or round, which are rubbed with seasoning, dry cured, smoked, and cooked to give it a firmer texture with a seasoned flavor. Cuts that may be used to make pastrami include the brisket, the beef plate adjacent to the brisket, the bottom round, the eye of the round, and the top round. The seasonings may include garlic, ground peppercorns, cinnamon, red pepper, allspice, cloves, and coriander seeds.
