Koen’s Cubano Sandwich

Koen and I love watching movies about food, so it’s no surprise we like the movie Chef. It’s by no means a perfect film, but it will certainly make you crave a Cubano Sandwich. When we decided to rewatch it this weekend, of course we needed the correct food pairing. We love any excuse to eat a Cubano!

What is a Cubano sandwich? It’s a delicious sandwich made with ham, roasted pork, Swiss cheese, pickles and mustard. I’m so lucky to have a husband like Koen who spent all day baking the bread and preparing the ingredients! The roasted pork was especially delicious – it was slow cooked in the sous vide and then marinated in a homemade mojo sauce. Perfection!
