Cuban sandwiches normally have ham but I tried using chorizo and green pepper instead, then grilled it using a brick the way a lot of Cubans do. Was very good and adjusted the recipe due to burning the first time I made this. Please see note below.

How to Make Cuban sandwich like no other


  1. Spread butter on one half of the bread roll and a thin layer of mustard on the other. Place 1 layer pork, 1 layer chorizo, a layer of green bell pepper, 1 layer cheese, and, finally, pickles on the buttered bread and top with the mustard-spread bread.
  2. Press down on sandwich to flatten and then wrap in aluminum foil.
  3. Heat your grill to high and close the lid. Wait at least 15 minutes before lowering the heat to medium and continuing.
  4. Place the wrapped, flattened sandwich on the grill and top with a brick. Close the lid and grill for 4 – 5 minutes per side.
  5. Remove the sandwich from the grill and cut at an angle into small sandwich wedges (triangles). Place on a large platter and serve while still hot.
  6. **Note as you can see in the photo my grill was on med-high and burned my sandwich. I have adjusted the recipe down to medium which work better on fallowing tries. Please remember all grills heat differently so you may need to also adjust a bit.
