The flavors you love about a Cuban sandwich... made skinnier! Perfect for lunch.
There was no way I was making Pernil without making Cuban sandwiches. For those of you who never heard of a Cuban sandwich, you might think this is a strange combo. A classic Cuban sandwich is made with roast pork (pernil), ham, Swiss, pickles, and mustard, butter and garlic on Cuban bread, heated and melted on a panini press. It's probably a day's worth of points. My reduced fat version has all the flavors of a Cuban without the added fat.
If you are not a pork eater, you might enjoy my Turkey Cuban sandwich.
