1 tbsp Butter
3 cups Chicken Stock
4 Ciabatta Bread or Torta Rolls, halved
1/4 cup Dijon Mustard
4 Dill Pickle, Slice
1 lb Ham or Prosciutto
1/4 cup Mayonnaise
Pit Boss Pulled Pork Rub
3 1/2 lbs Pork Shoulder
8 oz Swiss Cheese, Sliced
1 tbsp Vegetable Oil
1 White Onion, Sliced
These melt-in-your-mouth Cuban Pork Sandwiches are an elevated version of the traditional ham and cheese. Layered with tender smoked pork shoulder, thin slices of ham, Swiss cheese, a zesty mustard sauce and tangy dill pickles, the sandwich is pressed on the griddle until gooey and crisp.
Pork Shoulder is smoked low and slow on the Pit Boss KC Combo pellet side until it is probe tender and the meat slides off the bone. Then the pulled pork is combined with ham, cheese, and pickles which are then cooked on the cast iron griddle side along with toasted bread. Finally everything comes together in a delicious, meaty, and cheese Cuban Pork Sandwich.
This savory, bacon like aromas from Hickory Hardwood Pellets make this a no brainer for this pork-filled recipe.
Note: This recipe uses Pit Boss Pulled Pork Rub.
Don’t have time to make pulled pork, swap with smoked pork tenderloin and slice it up.
