What is the best tasting sliced meat from a deli ?

Asked by Aster (20002points) October 28th, 2020

i have gotten two kinds of ham and neither were very good. Bologna beats them out of the ballpark. Is there anything as good as bologna? I know it’s horrible for your health.

It’s a matter of personal taste. My favorite is thin sliced roast beef served with swiss on rye.

I like olive loaf! You get your veggies with your meat. Two food groups!
Liverwurst is good too.

It all boils down to personal preference.

I like buffalo chicken sliced on a number 3 thickness.

zenvelo's avatar

Yes, personal preference. For instance, I would love @elbanditoroso‘s roast beef and Swiss , but only on a real whole grain whet bread with lettuce….

Liverwurst, Veal loaf and Olive loaf in that order.

Actually, the best tasting deli meat is one that doesn’t make you sick

Corned beef on rye, once or twice a year (that is my yearly beef consumption). With pickles and with celery tonic, which is getting hard to find.

I prefer deli meat ends. When available.

“Is there anything as good as bologna?”

Literally anything is better. Well, maybe not Spam. I dunno. Kind of a toss up there as to which is worse.

@LostInParadise I’ll share your sandwich but only with Dr Brown’s Black Cherry soda.

Boars Head low salt ham
Boars Head Virginia Bakes Ham
Publix Roast Beef
National Deli Pastrami
National Deli Corned Beef

If you don’t have those brands I can’t vouch for anything except maybe hard salami, which is usually good every brand.

Hebrew National Salami sold near the hot dogs is really good too.

@janbb , Have you ever had Dr. Brown’s Celery Tonic? Nothing like it.

janbb's avatar

@LostInParadise I’d be willing to try it.

It’s hard to beat turkey.
I like a Subway foot-long turkey with everything, including peppers, but not the hot peppers, then smother it with sour cream. (drool, drool)
I feel a sudden urge to go to Subway…

Some nice spicy salami.
Or some Prosciutto, Black Forest Ham and Serrano ham.

In the US: Spicy Lebanon bologna
In Europe: see @ragingloli‘s answer

^^^^^^ PP I think we used to have that in New Jersey. I havent heard it mentioned in over sixty years !! Roast beef sounds great. I will buy that on Sunday! Thanks!

LuckyGuy's avatar

@Tropical_Willie None of our meat preferences are particularly healthy but that is not the point. I think we need to make some sandwiches!
I’ll see if I can find some veal loaf. and give it a try.

If the sandwich is going to be hot then I favor pastrami or corned beef.

Husband is roast beef guy.
I’m more of a thin-sliced smoked chicken, but I dont really love cold cuts. Usually I have genoa salami and crackers instead. Preferably with local goat cheese-yum!
Bologna IS really bad for you.

KNOWITALL's avatar

@LuckyGuy Depending on your food ethics you may want to pass on veal. I grew up on a farm, veal makes me sad.

ragingloli's avatar

Children do have the best meat.

@Aster Lebanon bologna is typically found in Pennsylvania, although we’ve been able to obtain it in Va. and Tn.

Tropical_Willie's avatar

Lebanon bologna Kutztown, Pa many years ago, yummy.

RedDeerGuy1's avatar

I like chewing on prosciutto as a long term snack. I like Pizza Hut’s peperoni.

dabbler's avatar

I agree with @YARNLADY, pastrami !
I’ve been vegetarian for about three decades but I remember the flavor of pastrami.
