Pastrami.

EtymologyEdit

From Yiddish פּאַסטראַמע(pastrame), from Romanian pastrama. That word is probably from Turkish pastırma, a variation of bastırma(dried meat), from root *bas-, to press; the other possible origin of the Romanian word is the Greek παστώνω(pastóno, I salt), from Ancient Greek παστός(pastós, sprinkled with salt, salted). The English spelling ending in -mi is probably from the influence of salami.
