Pulled pork Cuban sandwiches are a fantastic way to use up leftover pulled pork. This is my take on these classic South Florida sandwich. This recipe is perfect for a quick weeknight dinner for just one or a whole family.
One 6 inch French roll
⅓cupSwiss cheesefreshly grated
⅓cupBBQ pulled pork
2piecesdeli honey ham
¼cupbread and butter pickles
Place a medium cast iron pan in the oven and preheat the oven to 400 F.
Cut open a french roll, but do not cut all the way though. Make sure the two pieces are connected by a hinge.
Place the roll on a large piece of tin foil.
On the bottom portion of the roll, add cheese, pulled pork and top with ham.
Tightly wrap the sandwich closed with the tin foil and note which side is the bottom of the sandwich.
Place the wrapped sandwich in the preheated cast iron pan. Ensure the bottom of the sandwich is in contact with the pan. Cover the sandwich with a tin foil wrapped brick or cast iron press.
Bake for 15 minutes.
Carefully take out the pan and sandwich from the oven. Remove the brick and carefully unwrap the sandwich from the foil.
Open the sandwich and add pickles and yellow mustard.
Cut in half and enjoy.
If you don’t have a brick or cast iron press, you can use another cast iron pan or a panini press to achieve the desired texture.
