This over the top gooey Cuban sandwich is going to make your panini press your new favorite appliance…
Remember that crispy roast pork I made awhile ago? And that pork panini with rapini and and spicy sauce? Well I’m finally sharing my last sandwich recipe I made with that delicious hunk of meat. This tasty sandwich is simply a classic Cuban. In the past I posted a sandwich called sloppy cubanos but this time I made a full on classic Cuban sandwich.
There is not a lot to a Cuban sandwich but the flavor it creates when cooked together is nothing short of amazing. It’s a tasty mix of roasted pork, ham, pickles, Swiss cheese and yellow mustard. So simple and so delicious.
If only I could have fresh pork sitting in my fridge every single day.
Yield: 2 sandwiches
Prep Time: 10
Cook Time: 25
Total Time: 35
4 medium-large slices crusty bread (I used peasant bread)
2 tablespoons yellow mustard
8 thin slices Swiss cheese
8 thick slices crispy roasted pork (more or less depending on slice size or desired sandwich thickness)
8 thin slices smoked ham
4 large pickle slices
2 tablespoons unsalted butter
Pre-heat a panini press to medium heat.
Spread 1 tablespoon yellow mustard on one side of each slice of bread.
Add two slices of Swiss cheese to 2 pieces of bread. Top each sandwich with as much or as little roast pork and 3 slices ham. Top each sandwich with 2 more slices of Swiss cheese.
Top with bread and thinly coat the outside of each sandwich with butter.
Add to a pre-heated panini press. Cook for about 15 minutes until the sandwich is hot and cheese is melted.
