Cuban Sandwich

French bread
1 pound sweet ham sliced (I use Boar's Head)
1 pound roasted Cuban pork sliced (see recipe below)
1/2 pound Swiss cheese, sliced
Sliced dill pickles
Mayonnaise (NEVER)

 To make four generous sandwiches: Make each sandwich with the ingredients in this order: pickles, roasted pork, ham, and cheese. Be generous!

Place the sandwich on a lightly greased sandwich press. (You really want to smash the sandwich, compressing the bread to about 1/3 its original size!) Grill the sandwiches for two to three minutes on each side, until the cheese is melted and the bread is golden. Slice the sandwich in half diagonally and serve.

Roast Pork for Cuban Sandwiches
1 lb. boneless center pork loin roast
3 cloves garlic
1 tsp. salt
1 tablespoon dried oregano
1 cup sour orange juice (If you can't get sour oranges in your area, try 2 parts orange to one part lemon and 1 part lime)
1/2 cup olive oil
