I am not an expert nor even know much about Cuban sandwiches at all, so my comment is really just a question. A since closed restaurant, Little Havana, which operated on the street next to mine made what they claimed was a Cuban sandwich and it was awesome. Instead of sliced ham, they used ground ham croquettes. (sp?) The cround ham was shaped to the bread, which was oblong, or like a hogie bun. I know they heated the ham and I don't know if the ham was just heated ground ham or if they had a binding element, but it was super good. The mustard was not Dijon mustard. I don't think it was plain yellow mustard either. In fact it tasted a little like Creole mustard, or mayby yellow mustard and creole mixed. The sandwich was some good but yet, I cannot recall all the ingredients in it. The recipe presented here doesn't sound much like the one I enjoyed. I can't envision it's tasting as good as the one I had. Bon Apetite'.

Sorry but REAL Cuban sandwich does get made on any bread but true Pan Cubano a.k.a. Cuban Bread...! The pork used is marinated in Mojo Criollo, the ham is Espana Jamon & it must have only YELLOW mustard not Dijon mustard...!

I understand that the above recipe is not fully authenticate. Most recipes for Chinese food or pizza recipes are not the same as they would be prepared in China or Italy, either. Most people can not get Pan Cubano, so a hoagie is the closest bread choice that most people can get in their stores. If someone at Mr. Food is reading this, instead of plain ham, using cured deli ham, which would still be convenient to most people using the Mr. Food recipes.

@kozzak1: I'm with you. I also make my own Cuban bread. Its real easy. If I get lazy, Ive found that most Publix bakeries carry Cuban bread, and its pretty decent. But hey, look at the bright side at least they didnt use M-A-Y-O! Sorry but, anyone who puts mayo on their Cubano Mixto needs to go to Confession.
