The Cuban sandwich is a South Florida classic and it is one of my favorites. It is a hot pressed sandwich of Cuban bread, sliced ham, spicy roasted pork, mustard, and sliced dill pickles. There are several variations to it depending whether you are from the Tampa area or further South.
This is my BBQ spin on the Cuban, using pulled pork for the "roast pork" and a mustard based BBQ sauce in place of the mustard. I present to you....the BBQueban.
Slice the bread lengthwise. Lightly butter the inside of the bread and grill/toast until crisp.
Top the bottom with the ham, pork, mustard sauce, pickle, cheese and the top piece of bread. Cut in half at an angle.
Cook in a panini press for 5-8 minutes. If you don't have a press, you can put the sandwich between a hot griddle and a preheated cast iron (or heavy pot) on top.
If you can't find the Blues Hog or other commerical mustard based BBQ sauce, there are several on BigOven that you can make for yourself.
