Awhile back I threw a pork roast and some veggies into the slow cooker for about 8 hours, which made a great meal. Even though that was true, I did end up with some of the pork roast left over. So, next came the age old question. What to do with the remnants? There really was nothing left to do but go Cuban. Building a Cuban sandwich was the perfect idea. The Cuban is made with three slices of roast pork, three slices of Swiss cheese, and three slices of ham. After those ingredients are placed on bread of your choosing, typically Cuban but in this case Italian, you put on a layer of dill pickle chips and a light coat of mustard. The best part comes next. I brushed a little olive oil on the bread and grilled it just long enough to melt the cheese a little and put some nice grill marks on the bread. Delicious!
