For any Cuban sandwich lovers. Here is my attempt at them. I found a recipe for Cuban bread and went with that.

Not a thing of beauty.! But man do they smell good!

Sliced and ready for the meats and things.

Got the ham and pork warming up.

IMG_0317.jpg

Gave the bread a good slather of dejohn mustard. Added swiss cheese, and the ham and pork, pickles. And put in a heated panini press.

Out of the press and resting for a minute or 2.

Money shot! This was delicious. My next go around I'll add a touch more mustard.

That’s one great looking and hearty Cuban sandwich!

It’s 4am. I’m in my skivvies. I’m tip-toeing to the kitchen so I don’t wake up the wife... I’m looking to fix up a sandwich like that. Maybe even a second one using that bread and jcam222 jcam222 pastrami.

Yes sir!! I love a good Cuban sandwich. Developed an affinity for them quite a while back when I used to hang out at the neighborhood Hooters...for the wings of course :emoji_wink: They make a decent rendition of a Cuban sandwich but yours blows theirs completely out of the water. Excellent job buddy!!

Like most, I love a good Cuban sandwich. Yours looks excellent. That bread steals the show. The minor difference, I use spicy mustard instead of dijon. Great work, Steve.

WOW Steve that looks fantastic brother!

I lived in Miami/Ft Lauderdale and am ashamed I do not remember ever having one, but once I can eat real food again I will be giving it a try.

BIG LIKE!

That looks incredible. I'd finish about five of them! Lived in south Florida for a while and was my favorite meal there.
