Cuban style sandwich with a chipotle, mayonnaise, mustard sauce
My apologies to the Cuban sandwich purists out there...I know there are many of you thinking, "why can't she just leave a good thing alone?! Chipotle Tabasco? Mayonnaise and mustard?! Gasp!"
It's you purists that are the reason I titled this "Cuban style" sandwich as oppose to claiming it to be 100% the real thing.
But still...look at all this deliciousness...
I did read up on the Cuban Sandwich and there are some pretty strong opinions as to what makes one authentic. Some say no yellow mustard at all...instead the slow-roasted, seasoned pork on the buttered and pressed bread should be all the accompaniment you need. Others say mustard is surely the way to go. Some say add salami.
I don't know? I just say roast the pork yourself (recipe attached... )
....use the best meats, cheese and bread you can find...use a good amount of thinly sliced delicious pickles...put love into it of course ...and in this case...add a chipotle, mayonnaise, mustard sauce because I promise it's delicious! :)
