Cuban Pork Sandwiches have a zesty blend of flavors that your palate will just love. An easy to make recipe using the Pressure Cooker or Crock Pot and finish off in the Oven. Don’t be fooled, Cuban Pork Sandwiches are an easy dinner with a little prep work.
I often think that recipes are complicated because of multiple ingredients or too many ingredients. This sandwich definitely fell into that category. It just seemed like too much work. Boy was I wrong!
I can’t believe how easy this sandwich is to throw together and it’s so much better than a plain pulled port sandwich. WOW, the flavors burst in your mouth and you will go back for a second I promise.
How to make Cuban Pork Sandwich
Start by using the base ingredient of Shredded Pork. Again, remember that if you haven’t prepped your Pork in advance, don’t worry. Throw it into a crock pot and get it going. The ingredients are pretty simple and trust me, using a Dijon mustard does make a difference.
You can also get your pork roast cooking in your Pressure Cooker. Add 1 cup of water or Beef Broth to the bottom and place your 1 1/2 lb Pork Roast on a trivet. Add Crushed Garlic on top with 1/2 tsp Pepper. Close the lid at set to Pressure Cook for 90 minutes with a 30 minute natural release. Your Pork Roast will easily shred with forks.
Making your Sandwich
I prefer to toast the bread first. So I add a little butter to each piece and throw into the oven under the broiler for a few minutes. Then I squeeze some Dijon Mustard on the bread.
Now, I am NOT a mustard fan at all. I was skeptical when I first tried this recipe but I decided to jump in and go for it! Whoa! The blend of flavors became a little party in my mouth. It was so delicious and full of flavor I loved it!
In my house the Cuban Pork Sandwich has some variation for each family member. So go ahead and customize your sandwiches and make sure everyone gets the flavors they like.
Once the sandwiches are made and cheese is on top, I will throw them back in the under to broil and melt the cheese. It warms everything up so nicely and is the perfect finishing touch for this Cuban Pork Sandwich.
