Authentic Cuban Sandwich Ybor City-Style

Cuban bread, mustard, dill pickles, ham, pork and Swiss cheese create this iconic sandwich.

Ingredients

  • 1 loaf Cuban bread
  • yellow mustard
  • 1 pound Swiss cheese sliced thinly
  • 1 pound sweet deli ham
  • 1 pound roasted Cuban mojo pork pulled or sliced
  • whole dill pickles thinly sliced lengthwise
  • butter

Instructions

  • Split open the Cuban bread lengthwise.
  • Spread yellow mustard all over the cut side of both pieces of bread.
  • Divide the Swiss cheese slices among the two bread pieces.
  • On one side, layer ham, pork and pickles in that order.
  • Slap remaining loaf on top of the meat and pickles.
  • Heat a griddle to medium-high. Add approximately two tablespoons butter.
  • Place the sandwich top-side down on the melted butter. Weight it down with anything you can find. I covered a large cooking sheet in aluminum foil and placed my heaviest cast iron skillet on top. No need for fancy sandwiches presses. Just make your own!
  • As soon as the bread is toasted and the cheese on the bottom has melted, flip the sandwich over and repeat the process.
  • When done, cut the sandwich into four sections and serve warm.
