Deli meats

LotusRapper | Nov 28, 2013 11:24 AM

I prolly dozed off while sitting in on Deli Meats 101 at school ;-)

I regularly buy deli pastrami/corned beef, hams, roast beef etc from the supermarket. Recent directive from Mrs. LR suggests I stop buying them for health reasons.

My Q is ..... are the roast beefs, pastrami/corned beef that come in big slabs not "processed" (mushed up meats then extruded into artificial squares, rounds and ovals) but made using the original cuts as-is ? Sorry if this seems like a really silly elementary question.
