Traditional Cuban Sandwich With Yuca Fries

1 Serving
Total Time 20 minutes


  • 1 loaf Cuban bread
  • ½ oz. yellow mustard
  • 4 slices dill pickles
  • 4 oz. slices boiled ham or Virginia ham
  • 4 oz. slices roast pork
  • 2 oz. slice imported Swiss cheese
  • 1 oz. butter


  • Cut Cuban bread to desired size, common size is 7 inches.
  • Next, slice open the bread down the middle. On the topside of the bread spread mustard, evenly across.
  • Then place 4 pickles on top of the mustard.
  • You then place 1 slice of Swiss cheese on top of the pickles.
  • Slice ham to desired thickness, recommended size is 1½ ounces per slice, the thinner the better. Now fold each slice of ham in half and place evenly on bottom of bread.
  • On top of the ham, place slices of roast pork, 1½ ounces per slice. You then join both halves of the sandwich. You are now ready to grill your Cuban sandwich.


  • Spread butter on top of the bread evenly. Using a sandwich press, close the grill, smashing the sandwich. Leave sandwich in the grill until top of bread turns to a golden brown, and top is crisp. Approximate time is 4 to 6 minutes.
  • After the sandwich is crispy and the cheese has melted, remove the sandwich carefully and slice it diagonally, from corner to corner.
