These were common in FL, not so common here in NC. So true to form, I did my best to re-create the Midnight Sandwich/Cuban. This is the result...it's kind of a process, but worth the time!

Ingredients

  • 6
    hoagie rolls
  • 1 lb
    pork tenderloin
  • 18 slice
    deli ham (black forest ham works well)
  • 9 slice
    dill pickle

How to Make Pressed Cuban Sandwich

Step-by-Step

  1. Roast the tenderloin, as directed. (usually 20 min per pound @ 375*), let it rest 10-15 minutes. Slice fairly thin, against the grain.
  2. Split Hoagies and spread mayonnaise on the inside of both rolls. Put mustard on the inside of top roll.
  3. Now assemble the swiss cheese on the bottom, then a layer of roasted pork, 3 slices of ham (folded to fit), 1 1/2 slices pickle, and then the top of hoagie.
  4. Heat skillet to medium, or use a George Foreman (works very well). Spread outside of sandwich with butter or margarine, then grill until golden brown. If using a skillet, press sandwich with a spatula, then flip and press again.
