Pastrami is made from highly seasoned beef. The meat is trimmed of fat and the surface then rubbed with salt and a combination of seasonings such as garlic, ground cinnamon, black pepper, paprika, cloves, coriander seeds and allspice. The meat is dry-cured, smoked and cooked. A Turkish version, pastirma, is also made from beef. This type is dried.
