    How long will pastrami last?

    HI - just made the home made Pastrami out of the homemade corned beef per the recipe (cured in the pink salt) and wonder how long the leftovers will last if I vacuum seal them and put in the fridge? thanks much!

    I have left it in the fridge a few days, but I usually vacuum seal separate bags with enough for a sandwich in each bag and freeze within a few days.

    Personally I don't think it's likely to go bad, although at some point it will get moldy. It usually doesn't last long in my house, so I've never had to find out.

      I have had it last eight hours, if no one else knows about it!

        That was kinda my thoughts. LOL

        How long will it last? Hours, perhaps a day or two depending on quantity.
        How long will it last before it goes off? See above.

        My thoughts 2.

      Since it is cured, I would be tempted to treat it like home made bacon.... then again, you soak it in water to desalinate, removing some of the sodium nitrate, so, I am ..... not sure?

      If you were to treat it like home cured bacon, I would use within a week, or freeze.

        Keeps for a week (standard leftover rule), only lasts a day so I’ve never tested that.

          Thanks all - so even vacuum sealed no more than a week? sounds short, or?

              I'm not a food safety expert. As jfmorris says, usually you desalinate, so while it is cured, it's not like you are preserving it long term. But in a fridge vacuum sealed, and still somewhat cured, I would be tempted to go longer than a week. That's me, I like to live on the edge.
