No, this is not the authentic Miami Cuban sandwich, but it is a fairly reasonable substitute for those of us who don't have quick access to real McCoy. Deli sliced meats make this a fast and filling sandwich.
- 1 loaf Cuban bread (if not available, use a French or Italian loaf from the deli)
- 59.14 ml yellow mustard
- 78.07 ml mayonnaise
- 2 large dill pickles, thinly sliced lengthwise
- 226.79 g swiss cheese, thinly sliced
- 340.19 g ham, thinly sliced
- 226.79 g pork roast, thinly sliced
- 149.68 g genoa salami, thinly sliced
- 29.58 ml butter, softened
- Preheat sandwich press.
- Cut bread in half lengthwise.
- Spread inside top and bottom with mustard and mayonnaise.
- On bottom half, layer pickle slices,Swiss cheese, ham, pork and salami.
- Cover with top half of bread.
- Cut the loaf into 4 equal sandwich portions.
- Lightly butter top and bottom of each sandwich and press on the grill until the bread is crusty and the cheese is melted.
- Slice in half diagonally and serve.
- *** Note - if you don't have a panini press or a sandwich grill type appliance, just use 2 heavy skillets - 1 to cook in and the other on top of the sandwiches to press them down. I would suggest covering the bottom of the pressing-skillet with aluminum foil.
never had a cubin with salami in it before, it made a nice change.
We had these both for lunch and supper they were so good. Quick, easy and a great combo of flavors. I pressed them down with a plate and a heavy weight on top...loved the pannini effect !!!
Fast and filling - you are right!! Made this for a quick dinner - and really enjoyed it!! :yummy: Used prosciutto instead of ham and some light salami. Also used Dijon mustard instead of yellow mustard (I like a little kick!!). Grilled it in our G. Foreman grill. Thanks Susie!! :)
