Special Sauce: Corned beef vs. pastrami at The Hero Joint in Patchogue


sponsored content |

What’s the difference between pastrami and corned beef?

Both are briskets with a rich history among Jewish and Irish immigrants around the turn of the century in New York City and elsewhere in the U.S., but that’s where the similarities end.

These delicious styles of meat or prepped and then cooked quite differently, as John Murray of The Hero Joint in Patchogue explains here on Special Sauce.

One more note: Curing and cooking brisket takes a long, long time — no matter how you slice it.

The Hero Joint is located at 74 B East Main Street. Its front door faces the parking lot between the Patchogue-Medford Library an Village Cigar Headquarters.

The Hero Joint is also accessible through Kilwins Chocolates and Ice Cream, which is located on East Main, across from Patchogue Theatre for Performing Arts.
