Pastrami wrapped Dates

Another amazing recipe by the Kosher Guru

Salty and sweet, such an odd combination but for some reason, it just works. I guess all cravings get satisfied at the same time and the flavor combination just causes your mouth and taste buds to just smile. For the holidays I made these little cuties and the combination of the sweet dates and the salty smokey Meal Mart pastrami just work together. They are so easy it’s almost impossible to mess up and you look like the biggest culinary genius when you present these at the table. No one needs to know it’s only 2 ingredients and like 5 min of prep. Pastrami is just an amazing product you can do so much with it, such as make these pastrami wrapped dates. Like it says in the name, just wrap pastrami around a pitted date bake in an oven until the pastrami is crispy and the fat has rendered from the pastrami, and bam you have an impressive starter. If you want to make it shiny you can brush with some silan but totally an optional added step. This is a great activity for the kids to help you with and perfect for Succot or those on a paleo diet!! Enjoy

Ingredients

  • Medjool dates pitted
  • Package of Meal Mart pre-sliced pastrami (Costco sells a supersize one if you need to make a lot)
  • Silan (optional)

Directions

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  • Wrap a slice of pastrami around a pitted date (if the pastrami is super thick you can half it lengthwise).
  • Place on cookie sheet seam side down.
  • Keep wrapping until you run out of dates or pastrami.
  • Bake for about 15-25 minutes until fat has rendered and pastrami is crispy.
  • To add some sheen you can brush with some silan

Enjoy!!!
