Recipe Tips

- Make this sandwich up to a day ahead of time; wrap in aluminum foil and refrigerate, until ready to grill.

- This sandwich is also known as a Cubano or a smaller version is called a Midnight Sandwich. It was originally made with roast pork that comes from a specially prepared fresh ham which has been marinated in garlic and spices then grilled slowly before slicing. Because these sandwiches are usually toasted in a special sandwich press, this sandwich translates well to the grill.
