Leftover Ham Recipe 2: Cuban Sandwich

1 loaf of Cuban bread
1 lb pork, (I cooked a small tenderloin for an hr. with a BBQ rub on 350)
1 lb. of thinly sliced ham
1/2 lb. Swiss cheese

1. I cut the Cuban bread in half then sliced it lengthwise. I then put three slices of cheese on each side. Then I added the meat (as much or as little as you want). Topped it with pickles mustard. I closed the sandwich and used my sandwich press. If you do not have a sandwich press use a cast iron frying pan.


  1. Oh, I just made a similar Cuban sandwich (here) and it was so amazing! Yours looks just as good!

  2. Thank you for your idea...didn't know what to do with all the leftover ham.

  3. Do you want to make it even more yummy? For this recipe I prefer Iberico ham, you might find it also as jamon iberico. I know it is expensive but the trick is to buy the foreleg called shoulder or paleta rather than the ham (backleg). Paleta or shoulder is much cheaper and for sandwiches, pittas, rolls and “hand food” a wonderful alternative.
    I buy my iberico ham at Buyjamon.com

    BuyJamon.com the market place for iberico ham.


Thank you so much for letting me know how you feel about my dishes.
