Pastirma, bastirma, a kind of Turkish cured meat, is a delicacy with a wonderful flavour. It roots from “bastirma” which means “being pressed” in Turkish as pressure is a crucial step in the preparation of it. Pastirma is covered and cured in a thick spicy paste called “cemen”, which is prepared with cumin, fenugreek seeds, garlic and hot paprika.
Pastirma is sliced thinly and often eaten as a breakfast, fried with eggs, as a topping on Turkish flatbread or diced to be added to white bean stew.
