Cuban Pulled Pork Sandwich

Maybe it is the cold, or just that I really need to move back to the Florida Keys, but I have missed the food from that area.

The only part of Florida that I like is the Keys, probably because it doesn’t feel anything like the rest of the state.

I am not sure if this is made in Cuba, since I have not been to the country of Cuba. I have been to the island, but that is not the same thing at all.

This is a simple sandwich recipe, if you want more traditional bread, which is a sweetish roll, somewhat like Hawaiian rolls, try this recipe. I like this with French bread, made into rolls.

Pulled Pork Sandwich

1 1/2 cup orange juice - fresh squeezed
1 cup lime juice - fresh squeezed
18 garlic cloves, minced
3 tbsp spiced rum - optional
3 tbsp ground coriander
2 tsp salt
1 tbsp white pepper
1 tbsp pepper
2 tsp cayenne pepper
1 tbsp ground cumin
4-5 lbs boneless pork shoulder, quartered
  • Mix all of the liquids and spices in a bowl and pour into a slow cooker.
  • Place the pork pieces, cover and cook on low for 8-9 hours, until the meat falls apart
  • Using two forks, shred the pork and add it back in the liquid for about 30 minutes
  • In a ligfhtly oiled frying pan, transfer the drained meat and cook on medium until small spots of the meat is crispy
Pulled pork
1 lb swiss cheese
1 lb sliced deli ham - thin
Dill pickles
Brown or yellow mustard
Sandwich rolls
  • Hopefully, you know how to put a sandwich together

This can be served hot or cold, with the bread toasted, or not. It is good both ways.

It does make a big difference if the juice is fresh or not, but whatever you have is good.
