Chef John's Cuban Sandwich
To make an exceptional sandwich, you need a special sauce, so for a Cubano, mix mayo with yellow mustard and a shake of cayenne. Cut your Cuban bread and spread generously with special sauce, top with a couple slices of Swiss cheese and a few slices of smoked ham. Pile on your choice of shredded pork, pulled pork or carnitas, along with hand-cut slices of dill pickle and a couple more slices of Swiss. Toast in a pan with a heavy press, or use a panini press. A delicious sandwich, with tangy sauce and pickles balancing the richness of the cheese and meats inside an exquisitely crisp Cuban bread! Get the recipe for Chef John's Cuban Sandwich.
