This is an authentic recipe from Puerto Sagua, a family-owned Cuban diner in Miami.
- 1 tablespoon unsalted butter, softened (plus more for the pan)
- 1 (12 inch) cuban baguette or 1 (12 inch) soft hoagie rolls
- 1 tablespoon yellow mustard
- 2 1⁄2 slices ham or 3 ounces sliced ham
- 2 slices roast pork or 2 slices pressed pork or 2 -3 ounces pressed pork
- 2 1⁄2 slices swiss cheese or 2 ounces swiss cheese
- 3 dill pickle slices
- Place a large skillet over medium heat. Add a small amount of butter.
- Slice the baguette in half lengthwise. Spread 1 T. butter evenly on one half of the bread and the mustard on the other. Layer the ham, roast pork, cheese and pickles on the bottom half; close with the top.
- Place the sandwich in the skillet and press down with your hands, a spatula or another skillet; cook for about 30 seconds, flip and cook on the other side until golden and the cheese is melted. Slice in half.
This is so good. I used #349384 for the pork and then pressed the sandwich between the griddle and foil lined bricks. So good. Thank you for sharing with us.
Delicious! I used four small gluten free baguette rolls and organic ham and pork, not quite sure if it was what the recipe called for, but it made a really delicious dinner accompanied by some coleslaw. Thanks for sharing!<br/>Made for ZWT 9 / Caribbean for The Apron String Travelers
I love Cuban sandwiches, but until now, had never tried making one at home. So good, and really easy to make once you have the roast pork on hand. I made my own roast pork using Cuban Roast Pork in the crockpot. With a little bit of planning for the roast pork, now I can enjoy Cuban sandwiches just about any time I like, yay!
