Everyone loves bacon and although I have never tasted it, all the photos showing it baked, cooked and grilled look incredible. After seeing a delicious looking photo of bacon wrapped asparagus, I decided I wanted my bacon too. Since it’s Kosher in the Kitch here and bacon is probably the biggest nono in the book for us Kosher folks, I swapped it out for some good ol tasty pastrami! (if you are looking for a meatless option, just use fake bacon or a soy product instead)
1 bunch of asparagus (about 16 sticks)
1 cup of bbq sauce
1/2 pound pastrami
Preheat oven to 400′. Wash and rinse off asparagus. Break off the ends of the asparagus. Brush both ends of pastrami with bbq sauce then wrap each asparagus with a slice of bbq pastrami. Place asparagus on lightly greased baking sheet, and brush each asparagus once more with additional bbq sauce then cook in oven for 10-12 minutes.
