Cuban Sandwich

Recipe for Cuban Sandwich

Recipe: Cuban Sandwich


  • 4 to 8 thick slices of roasted pork loin
  • 8 thin slices Virginia ham
  • 4 slices Swiss cheese
  • 4 sandwich-sliced pickles
  • 1 loaf French bread
  • mustard
  • butter or margarine


  1. Preheat grill (we use a George Foreman), panini grill or gridle. Coat with cooking spray.
  2. Slice French bread into about 5-inch to 6-inch sandwich-sized slices (we usually get about 5 to 6 sandwiches from one loaf). Take one slice of bread and slice horizontally, so that you have crust on the top and bottom.
  3. Lightly butter the inside of each slice, then lightly dot/smear with mustard.
  4. Then layer — pork roast slices, Swiss cheese, ham slices and pickle. Top with bread slice and press down gently.
  5. Place sandwiches, one or two at a time, on grill. If using a Foreman/panini grill, carefully place top of grill over sandwich and press down gently. If using a gridle or pan, place a lid or pan over top of sandwich and press down (if using this method, you will need to flip the sandwich over after a few minutes in order to grill both sides).
  6. Grill for 5 to 7 minutes, or until the bread is golden and crispy and the cheese has melted.
  7. Plate and cut each sandwich on the diagonal. Enjoy!
  8. Note: I like to warm the roast and ham before putting the sandwiches together.

Number of servings (yield): 4
