Cuban Hot Pressed Pork Sandwich
1 loaf Cuban Bread (substitute: Italian or French)
yellow mustard, to taste
4 slices ham
4 slices roast pork
4 slices swiss cheese
pickles, thinly sliced, to taste
Slice a loaf of Cuban bread almost completely in half lengthwise, and spread mustard along the bottom.
Add the ham, pork, cheese and pickles to the sliced loaf.
Place the sandwich in a large frying pan over medium heat.
On another burner heat up a large, heavy-bottomed pot.
Press the sandwich between the two hot pans until toasty (cheese melts)
Notes: I thought these were pretty tasty. We used French bread because that is what we could find. Based on the photos at the source I think Cuban bread may have resulted in thinner sandwiches. Although it wouldn't be as authentic, it seems like you could also use a George Foreman style grill to press the sandwich.
