I just rub with freshly ground black pepper.

When I make pastrami, I just use black pepper.

Check out the recipe section of thirdeyes site. I have not tried it but it looks really good

It's not bad... :mrgreen: There is not a before picture on that page, so here is what it looks like.

Here is the rub recipe I use. I think the main flavors most will agree on are pepper, corriander and garlic, so you could get by with just those.

RUB:

(this recipe makes enough rub to season several corned briskets, any leftover can be stored in a zipper baggie in the freezer for several months)

4 tablespoons freshly ground black pepper (more if you like it peppery)
1 teaspoon ground coriander
1 teaspoon granulated garlic powder
1 teaspoon onion powder
2 teaspoons Canadian/Montreal Steak seasoning
1/2 teaspoon thyme, dried
1 teaspoon paprika
Combine all ingredients and mix thoroughly.

Isn't smoked corned beef really just pastrami?

Yes. Or you could say that pastrami is just smoked corned beef. :mrgreen:

My favorite pastrami rub is 2/3 Plowboys Bovine Bold mixed with 1/3 course ground black pepper.

MOS95B 09-16-2010 04:00 PM

I just use coarse ground black pepper

If you want to be 100% technically accurate, corned beef and pastrami are different cuts. However, the two cuts live right next to each other on the cow, so I doubt there's enough of a difference to matter. I forget where I learned that.

HOWEVER, I smoke corned beef and call it pastrami. Food police have yet to bust me for it...
