Thereof, how much meat is in a Katz pastrami sandwich?

At Katz's they put about 1 pound of meat on each sandwich, and the Carnegie Deli uses even more. That's just too much for me devour without unhinging my jaw. 1/2 to 3/4 pound per sandwich is more than enough for home use.

Similarly, what's on a Katz pastrami sandwich? The sandwich is really quite simple with just 4 components:

Is Katz Deli pastrami beef?

Salted meat is denser and slices cleaner than unsalted meat, and the pink curing salt Katz's uses brings a familiar cured twang to the beef. Katz's corned beef (which doesn't get smoked) is cured for a full four weeks, but the pastrami cures for less time—two to four weeks depending on the batch.
