Victor's Cuban Sandwich

READY IN: 20mins

This got the Reader's Digest vote ("America's 100 Best", May 2006) for the best stuffed sandwich. The recipe suggests 1/6 lb of cheese but it appears that the Zaar computer doesn't recognize that so it's listed below as 1/4 lb.

To my mind this is the classic Cubano sandwich. I used left over roasted pork shoulder. I used two slices of cheese for each side of the bread.
