If made right, this is my favorite ... major "go to" Cuban comfort food ever. I can't get enough of these because the flavor is so outrageously good. With this sandwich, the flavor profile just dances in your mouth. Not a boring sandwich here ... I can eat one any minute of the day and then still want another one! I recommend you make it or eat it with authentic Cuban bread!
This is the best recipe I have ever tried for Cuban bread. I lived in Key West, FL for a time and could get bread fresh in the bakery. When I moved back to SD it was NO WHERE!!!! I had to make my own. I found this recipe on the King Arthur website and have used it ever since.
