I asked for some one afternoon (to make Cubans) and the fella thought I asked for pancetta. I asked him if he sliced the right thing (after he had to go hunt up a new package). He was nice about the mistake and it was kinda funny when he realized it.

I think I missed something. So what is it that makes it a Cuban Sandwich? Is it the kind of bread, the mustard sauce, the way the roast pork is cooked, it's a pressed sandwich, or some combination of these or other things?

All of those listed sound great and just like pricessfiona60, imagining them has made me hungry as well!!

In the same manner as veal prepared a certain way with certain ingredients is called veal saltim boca, a sandwich prepared in a certain way with certain ingredients is called a Cuban.

BTW, I dont think they call this a Cuban Sandwich in Cuba. One Cuban restaurant we go to regularly calls it a Media Noche - a Midnighter. Maybe because it's a good meal when you've been drinking and dancing all night.

Hi..!!
A Cuban sandwiches, sometimes called a cubano, is a Latin variation on a grilled ham and cheese sandwich. This undeniably delicious sandwich is grilled and made with ham, pork, Swiss cheese, pickles, mustard and Cuban bread.

Sounds like a good excuse to make a pork roast to me!

The one common denominator I see is pickle.

Generally make mine with thinly sliced roast pork, swiss cheese, thinly sliced dill pickle, farmhouse mustard, and airy/fine-crumb grinder (sub) rolls. Generally I omit the ham. The farmhouse mustard is just a New England twist, and features whole grain mustard seeds with a bit of horseradish. I do the press in a skillet with a heavy foil-wrapped object.
