This is a flavorful, easy, moist main dish to serve either during the week or even on Shabbat. It's great warm, at room temperature, or even cold. If you cannot find beef frye to wrap the loaf, try pastrami. Serve this with potato salad and broccoli salad for a great summer meal.


Heat oven to 350°F.

In a large mixing bowl, gently knead together all ingredients except for beef frye. Mix until very smooth. Transfer to a 13"x9" baking dish, and mound into a long oval loaf. Spread the beef frye strips evenly over the loaf, tucking into the bottom to secure.
