A New york deli classic. Some of these sandwiches can be HUGE and are really a marvel (and easily shared).

Great sandwich! I made this on rye bread that I toasted before assembling the sandwich. The pastrami was very tender from simmering in the broth, so the meat just melted in the mouth. I drained the pastrami before putting on the bread so that the sandwich would not be soggy.
