    LAURIE's Note:

    From a griling web site these are awesome! I love the fact that they are done on the grilland that a pork loin is something I aways have in the freezer. Cuban sandwiches feature a distinctive combination of marinated pork, ham, Swiss cheese, and dill pickles. Slice them in halves or quarters and arrange on a platter for great party fare. Char the buns on both sides for a "Media Noche" (midnight) version of this Cuban classic. We dont care for the charred buns but to each his own......prep time includes marinating time.
