How Do I Prepare 5 Lb Pastrami in Cryovac?

therealdoctorlew | Mar 26, 201908:17 PM     10

Advice requested. I have received a whole 5 lb Aaron's Kosher Beef Deckle Pastrami in cryovac. No directions. I looked as much as I could on Google, with few results. I think it is supposed to be cooked, 2 1/2 hours in simmering water, probably still in the cryovac (sort of sous vide). Since it is far too much for a one time consumption, I then plan to freeze up pieces of about a pound each after having our fill of the fresh pastrami.

Is this a correct plan. I don't want a disaster.
