Cuban Sandwich

Although named for the island nation off the Florida coast, the Cuban sandwich, or Cubano, finds its U.S. home in Tampa, where the first Cuban immigrants arrived in the 1800s. The sandwich consists of a thick stack of ham, roast pork, cheese, pickles and sometimes salami tucked inside a roll, and served pressed and hot. The proper roll is a subject of passionate debate. In Florida, it's usually fresh Cuban bread made with lard, but a crusty French or Italian roll works fine, too.

great sandwich for leftovers
January 13, 2011
I made a pork tenderloin for dinner just to have leftovers for this sandwich. A good cuban recipe is hard to find - this was really good. Its a little more authentic with regular yellow mustard. I used a chipotle marinated pork tenderloin for more flavor.

Great for a quick meal
September 11, 2010
This was a delicious sandwich and a great way to use some leftover roasted pork loin. Made with the Kaiser roll it was a perfect size for a quick satisfying dinner. I served it with a simple salad on the side. It took about 5 or 6 minutes at 385 degrees in the panini press. I used hamburger dill chips as the pickles and they were good in this sandwich. These are common ingredients used is a delightful combination.
