If you’ve ever had a traditional Cuban sandwich you know that they are so very basic, yet so very delicious. Having bought them when out in cafe’s on many occasions I decided to see if I could create my own and came up with what I feel is the perfect combination. While it does require a bit of planning ahead, it is well worth the work to create this Classic Cuban Sandwich for your family. It’s also a great way to use up leftover pork roast from a family meal on Sunday.
Classic Cuban Sandwich Recipe
- 2 Cups Pulled Pork (leftover slow cooked or purchased already cooked)
- 6 Thick Slices Dietz & Watson Honey Ham
- Honey Dijon Mustard (recipe below)
- 6 Sliced Sandwich Pickles
- 3 Slices Dietz & Watson Swiss Cheese
- 1 Large Loaf Crusty Bread
- Butter For Grill/Sandwich Press
Honey Dijon Mustard:
- 2 Tablespoon Dijon Mustard
- 2 Teaspoon Honey
- 2 Teaspoon Mayonnaise
In a small bowl mix together ingredients for Honey Dijon Mustard
Slice crusty bread in half and spread mustard on both sides
Place pulled pork, then ham, then cheese, then pickles topping with second half of crusty bread.
If you have a sandwich press use it to create a nice flattened and heated through sandwich. If not, melt butter in large skillet and use another clean skillet or pan to “flatten” sandwich while it cooks, turning once at 3-4 minutes. Cook sandwich for a total of 6-8 minutes.
This classic Cuban sandwich is perfect for having with a nice side of potato chips, potato salad or even your favorite macaroni salad. While a classic seems to have just a hint of yellow mustard, we found the addition of a honey mustard made it more appealing for the kids in the house. You can use simple yellow or Dijon mustard if you prefer.
