Speaking of Sunset: Look at that. Is that not mouth watering? It is a Grilled Pastrami, Swiss, and Sweet Onion Marmalade on Rye from Sunset’s Sandwiches 26 ways.
I’ve never thought of using a recipe for a sandwich, but if it makes the sandwich come out like that, I’m listening. Here is the recipe:
Grilled Pastrami, Swiss, and Sweet Onion Marmalade on Rye
1 Tbs butter
1 Tbs vegetable oil
2 medium red onions, thinly sliced
1 garlic clove, minced
1/2 c sugar
1/2 tsp salt
1tsp black pepper
1/2 c red-wine vinegar
1/2 cup red wine
- 4 slices extra-sour rye or caraway rye bread
2 Tbs softened unsalted butter
4 thin slices pastrami
4 oz Swiss cheese
2 Tbs whole-grain mustard
1. Make marmalade: Melt butter with oil in a large frying pan over medium-high heat. Add onions, garlic, sugar, salt, and pepper, stirring well to combine. Reduce heat to medium and cook, stirring occasionally, until onions have softened and browned, about 20 minutes. Add vinegar and wine. Cook, uncovered, stirring occasionally, until most of the liquid has been absorbed and onions are soft and sticky, about 10 minutes. Let marmalade cool slightly.
2. Make sandwiches: Evenly spread one side of each bread slice with 1/2 tbsp. butter. Spread unbuttered side of 2 slices with 1 1/2 tbsp. marmalade each, then top with pastrami and cheese. Spread mustard on unbuttered side of remaining 2 bread slices and place each, buttered side up, on pastrami- and cheese-topped slices.
3. Heat a large nonstick frying pan over medium heat. Add sandwiches and cook, turning once, until golden brown on both sides and cheese is melted, about 5 minutes total.
Make ahead: Marmalade keeps up to 2 weeks, covered and chilled.
