    Pastrami Rub:
  • 2 Tbsp. McCormick® smoked paprika
  • ¼ cup ground black pepper
  • 1 tsp. garlic powder
  • 1 tsp. ground coriander
  • ½ tsp. ground ginger
  • ¼ cup kosher salt
  • 2 Tbsp. Giant Eagle brown sugar

  • 1-2 butternut squashes
  • 2 egg whites
  • 1 cup Giant Eagle sour cream
  • ½ cup Maille® mustard whole-grain, old-style Dijon
  • 1 head red cabbage
  • ⅓ cup sugar
  • ½ cup cider vinegar
  • 2 Tbsp. McCormick® poppy seeds
  • 1 Tbsp. salt
  • 1 Fuji apple


Combine all the ingredients for the rub in a small bowl. Peel the butternut squash and slice into ½-inch thick 3 to 4-inch long pieces to make squash steaks.

Preheat oven to 425°F. In a wide shallow bowl, whisk egg whites with 1 teaspoon of water, just to combine. Dip the squash slices in the egg white, then sprinkle liberally with the spice mixture all the way around. Place on a wire rack over a sheet pan. If you do not have a wire rack, place directly on a sheet pan.

Place in the oven and roast until tender, about 20 minutes.

While the squash is cooking, in a small bowl, combine sour cream, mustard and a pinch of salt. Shred the red cabbage and place in a medium bowl. Combine the sugar and cider vinegar in a small saucepan with the poppy seeds and 1 tablespoon of salt. Bring to a boil, then pour over the red cabbage. Let marinate for about 15 minutes, tossing once in a while. Just before serving, julienne the apple and toss with the red cabbage.

Serve the roasted squash with the mustard sauce and apple slaw.
