Pastrami and Provolone Sandwiches


When I’m at the deli, I normally go for the same cuts of meat every time. When I went the other day, I decided to switch it up and get pastrami. A nice warm sandwich for lunch is so good! When the pastrami is baked, it has a nice crispy edge to it and just melts together with the cheese.

Pastrami and Provolone Sandwiches

Prep time: 5 minutes | Cook time 8 minutes | Total time: 13-15 minutes


  • 1 loaf of Italian bread
  • 2 tbs butter
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp Italian seasoning
  • 8 slices of pastrami
  • 4 slices of provolone cheese


  • Preheat the oven to 375 degrees.
  • In a microwave safe bowl, melt the butter.
  • Stir the garlic powder and Italian seasoning in the butter.
  • Using a bread knife, slice the Italian loaf into individual slices to make sandwiches. I like them to be 1/2 inch thick or a little smaller. I made four sandwiches so I had 8 slices of bread.
  • Using a kitchen brush, brush the butter on both sides of each piece of bread.
  • Lay the individual slices of bread on a baking sheet.
  • Lay two slices of pastrami on four slices of bread– so four slices will have pastrami on them and the other four slices of bread will not.
  • Put the baking sheet into the oven and bake at 375 for 5 minutes.
  • Take the baking sheet out of the oven and lay one piece of provolone cheese on each of the remaining slices of bread that did not have pastrami on it.
  • Put the sheet back into the oven for 3 minutes–just enough time to melt the cheese.
  • Take the baking sheet out of the oven and assemble the sandwiches.
  • Enjoy!

XO, Rachel
