Faux Cuban Pork Sandwich

June 28, 2008

So to avoid making the Cuban style pork (read: I am sometimes lazy), but to make it taste like a Cuban Pork Sandwich, I’ve taken a few liberties.

Organic Roast Pork Loin
Cornichons, diced
Sweet onion, diced
Deli-style seed-included mustard
Cilantro (fresh)
Sharp white cheddar
Bread of your choosing cut in 1/2 inch slices

Sautee in olive oil the diced cornichons and onions, along with salt and pepper. Once soft and hot, add mustard to make it a wet concoction. Do yourself a favor and don’t taste this on its own.

Assemble like so: Bread, cheese, cilantro, pork, cornichon & onion mixture, bread. Throw it in the panini machine. If you don’t have one, wrap it in foil, put your oven at 350, and put it in there with an oven-safe skillet over it to push it down.

I served it with pan-fried plantains.
