cuban sandwich (round 2 for the cuban pork from sunday supper)
let me start by saying WOW.. where has this little sucker been all my life.. i know i have always said a sandwich doesn't constitute dinner.. but this wasn't just any sandwich it was yummy, it was crunchy, salty, sweet, cheesy.. everything you want in a sandwich.. believe you me this will be making an appearance in our house again.. if i have to make the roast pork just to make these sandwiches then so be it..
prep time: 10 minutes
cooking time: 10 minutes
· 4 deli rolls
· prepared yellow mustard
· 1/2 pound baked ham, thinly sliced
· 1/2 pound roast pork, thinly sliced (I used the left over pork from dinner sunday night)
· 8 thin dill pickle slices
· 1/2 pound Swiss cheese, thinly sliced
spread a thin layer of mustard on top and bottom halves of bread..arrange ham, pork, pickle slices, and swiss cheese evenly over the bread. place sandwich in a hot teflon pan either spray pam down or drizzle olive oil then position a heavy iron skillet (or brick) on top of the sandwich, flatten the sandwich to about 1/4 of its original size. grill the sandwich for 2 to 3 minutes on each side. now if you have a panini press or something similar obviously it would be easier to use that but I don’t..
