A perfect party or Shabbat appetizer: it can be served hot or room temperature and takes two minutes to make! If you’re in it for the meat, add lots more to really have a taste of both in each bite! You can also substitute for kosher bacon.

Prepare the Bundles
There are no exact measurements for this recipe, so adjust to your taste preferences!
Preheat the oven to 400°F.
Separate the asparagus into 3 or 4 spears per bundle.
Placed on a baking sheet and drizzle olive oil and season to taste with salt, freshly cracked pepper and lots of freshly minced garlic.
On a separate plate brush both sides of the pastrami strips with BBQ sauce and maple syrup.
Wrap one or two strips of pastrami around each asparagus bundle, securing with a toothpick.
Bake the bundles for 10–12 minutes. Allow to cool a little, then remove toothpicks.
To clean green asparagus from insects, the tips as well as the triangular side leaves should be cut off and discarded. Alternatively, use frozen, thawed asparagus with a reliable hechsher.
