In this video, Betty demonstrates how to make a Cuban Sandwich. This video was inspired by Jaredino's Cubano, which Rick ordered at Wallace Station Restaurant in Versailles, Kentucky, on our trip there last fall.

Garlic clove 2 , mince
For creamy mustard
Mayonnaise 1/2 Cup (8 tbs)
Yellow mustard 1 1/2 Teaspoon (1

Bread loaf 1 , sliced into about 5/8
Roasted pork 1 Cup (16 tbs) , pulled, or cut into small chunks (more or less as needed)
Swiss cheese slices 6 (more or less as needed)
Thin ham slices 10 (deli
Pickle slices 30 Gram (any kind as needed)



For Garlic Butter:

1. In a small pan, melt butter and saute minced garlic in it. Remove from heat and set the pan aside.

For Creamy Mustard:

2. Mix yellow mustard with mayonnaise to form a creamy mustard spread.


3. Spread desired amount of garlic butter on the outer sides of two slices of bread.

4. Spread creamy mustard on the two inner sides of the buttered bread slices.

5. On the plate, place the two bread slices, buttered side down.

6. On the upper side of one bread slice, place roast pork to cover, about 4 thin slices of ham, about 3 slices of Swiss cheese, and sweet pickle slices. Place the other prepared bread slice on top. Repeat this procedure to put together as many sandwiches as desired.

7. In a hot Panini press, place sandwich (or sandwiches) and grill until the bread is toasted and cheese is melting. You may choose to use a skillet on the stove and place a heavy skillet on top of the sandwich to weigh it down and turn once half-way through.


8. Serve immediately with a dill pickle spear and barbecued potato chips!


You can adjust the amount of cheese, ham, and pork as needed.
