Cuban Sando

What’s that? You also thought Cuban Sandos sounded like exactly the start-of-the-week treat you needed??

Traditionally, these tasty sandwiches are often pressed “a la plancha” (on a griddle) to push all of the fab flavors together. If you have a panini press, that might be a great final touch. But if not, just press down on your sando with a spatula to replicate the effect! Let those flavors meld together before the first bite 🙂 Alright Fam, time to assemble your sando! 

What’s in your bag:

  • Ciabatta 
  • Roast pork & bacon
  • Swiss cheese, dill pickles, caramelized onion mustard, and roasted garlic aioli 
  • Red cabbage slaw 
  • Chipotle spiced steak fries

What you’ll need from home:

  • Aluminum foil-lined sheet tray + extra foil
  • Bowl

Total prep time: 15 minutes

The Pork, Ciabatta & Fries

  1. Preheat your oven to 375F.
  2. Drizzle a sheet tray with olive oil and lay the pork & bacon on one side. Fries go on the other. Leave room for your ciabatta! Heat in the oven for 10 minutes.
  3. While in the oven, slice your ciabatta in half lengthwise.
  4. Remove the sheet tray carefully from the oven and add on your ciabatta, cut side up.  
  5. Pop the sheet tray back in the oven for 5 more minutes or until warmed to your liking!

The Slaw

  1. Mix your slaw and roasted garlic aioli up in a bowl. Give it a little taste, and season with S&P to your liking!

The Rest 

  1. Time to assemble your sando! Take your slices of warmed bread and spread your caramelized onion mustard on each half.
  2. Layer the bottom side with the pork & bacon and then the pickles. Arrange your cheese slices on the other side.  
  3. Carefully, toss that first sheet of foil you used, and then line your tray with a new one. 
  4. Place your sando halves open-faced on the freshly lined tray, then pop it back in your 375F oven quickly so the cheese gets all meltyyyy.

Remove your sando halves from the oven, stack ‘em, and give it a good press. Plate with fries and slaw, and devour it all! 

That’s it! #Dinnersolved, dinner served.
