sammijean06: Original photo and recipe are on my blog: https://thelovelylife.org/2018/07/16/cuban-sandwich/
* Cuban loaf, sliced in half
* Cuban pulled pork
* thinly sliced deli ham
* yellow mustard
* pickle, thinly sliced
* Swiss cheese, sliced
* butter, melted
Heat skillet over medium heat (unless you’re using a panini press). Spread yellow mustard on cut sides of loaf, then on one half add a slice of Swiss cheese. Layer the ham, pork, pickle slices and another slice of cheese on top. Place the second half of the loaf on top, and butter both top and bottom of the outside of the sandwich.
Place sandwich in the skillet, then weigh it down with a heavy skillet or pot. You need something heavy enough to compress the sandwich. Cook for about 3-5 minutes on each side, or until the loaf is dark golden brown and crispy, and the cheese has melted.
Let the sandwich stand for one minute before cutting in half. Serve immediately.
(The recipe for pulled pork and bread are on the blog).

So much work for a single sandwich, but it looks incredible.

Throwaway1303033042: Butter instead of lard in the bread?
Itshowyoueatit: I went to orient Beach in Sint Maarten, I was starving. Didn’t help that much that a yummy girl made me a sub, so cheese, pata negra, Italian bomba. Does not better than that.
GTDigger: No salami, not a true Cuban. Everything else checks out
Wolfcolaholic: Look dreadful
Mustard gets a smear it isn’t cream cheese….probably the only thing you taste tbh
