Pastrami Burger is a type of burger popularized by a fast food restaurant chain based in Salt Lake City called Crown Burgers. The food chain calls it “Crown Burger” and it is their signature dish, it is basically a cheeseburger served with layers of hot pastrami. This burger might have been introduced when the chain started during the late 70’s. It then proved to be popular and it became a common sight in most restaurants in Salt Lake City, Carl’s Jr. even released their own version called “Pastrami Burger”.
Though I haven’t tried it personally I read a lot about this burger which eventually urged me to make some at home but I have to trim down on the amount of pastrami as the original one have overloads of meat on it.
