Shirley's version of a Cuban Sammie

Shirley Makekau


I cooked a pork roast in my crockpot and had leftovers so I decided to make a cuban sandwich with the pork. I only thought to take a picture of that sammie AFTER I had taken a big bite. Now this was a treat for me using this bread as I have been trying to watch my carbs as I am diabetic but I gave in and did enjoy so much and if you try it I hope you feel the same way as I did.. ummm umm good!

How to Make Shirley's version of a Cuban Sammie


  1. I get my submarine sandwich rolls from Walmart over by the deli area. First step is to split the roll with a bread knife.
  2. On one side of the bread add the sliced or shredded pork. Then add the pickles I used two. On the other side of the bread slauther on the mustard and then close the sammie.
  3. Heat up the griddle pan and then spread butter on one side of the bread and then when the griddle is ready place the sandwich on it and let it brown for a few minutes and while it is browning butter the top bread and when the bottom is ready turn over and do the same for the other side.
  4. Remove from pan and place on a plate and slice in half.. I gave my hubby some chips as a side. So simple and so good!
