How to Make Deli-style Lunchmeat
This method compacts the meat as it cools down and makes it more dense for optimal slicing... just like you get in the deli! And it's healthier, since there are no added fillers, nitrates, etc. that deli meats can have. It's your cooking and you know what's in it.
- good sized solid piece of meat of choice (turkey, ham, corned beef, etc.)
- cheese cloth (or you can use rolled gauze)
- rubber bands (not the real thin ones)
