- Yesterday’s Pork Roast sliced thin as you can by hand
- sliced deli ham (pre-packaged is fine)
- Swiss Cheese
- Sandwich Pickles
- Cuban Bread
- Mayo (optional)
- Lettuce (optional)
- Tomato (optional)
Slice open loaf of Cuban bread so sandwich can be made inside.
If your local store doesn’t carry Cuban Bread you could substitute French or Italian Bread.
A traditional Cuban only has mustard on the bread. I like mine with Mayo and Mustard.
Spread your choice on the bread.
Now build your sandwich.
Place the Pork, Ham, & Swiss Cheese on the inside.
Again a traditional Cuban doesn’t have lettuce and tomato, but at my house they do!
So, if you would like to add them now is the time!
Put the top on and there you have a Cold Cuban.
If you would like yours pressed, or hot (the only way my hubby likes his).
You will need a sandwich press or a hot skillet with something heavy to put on top of the sandwich, like another skillet, or a brick covered with aluminum foil.
Place some butter in the hot skillet.
Place sandwich in.
Spread butter on the top of the sandwich so it doesn’t stick to the second skillet or brick.
Let it heat until sandwich is pressed and cheese melts as desired.
