Cuban Sandwiches

The Cuban Sandwich

Cuban sandwiches are traditionally served on Cuban bread called Pan Cubano which is known for it's crusty exterior and chewy interior.  You can make your own Pan Cubano, which I have done for my sandwiches.  The closest to authentic recipe for Pan Cubano can be found at  These sandwiches can also be served on bolillos or french rolls.


thinly sliced deli ham
thinly sliced roasted pork tenderloin
pan cubano or french rolls can be used
pickles (I prefer to use Claussin)
swiss cheese

To make the sandwiches; spread a thin layer of mustard on each piece of bread, layer with slices of roasted pork, ham, pickles and cheese.  If serving the sandwiches warm, you can use a sandwich press or cook them in a pan and pressing them down with a heavy pan.  Cook on each side until crisp and golden.
