Best sandwich ever. No seriously. BEST SANDWICH EVER! I could eat this every day! It was soooooo good! The pork cooks in the crock-pot for 8 hours and is delicious on its own. I could eat the meat with nothing else. But you add ham, pickles, honey mustard, cheese, bread and press it all together??? Heaven on a plate. Make this NOW!
If you want to go all the way, make THIS CUBAN BREAD for the sandwich. YUM!
Oh, and if you have leftover meat (because it makes a lot!), make tacos! I reheated the pork with a bit of lime juice, added cilantro, tomatoes, and sour cream.... another amazing dinner.
So now that gives you two reasons to make this. Go... go now! :)
Recipe from Cassie Craves
For the pernil:
1 2-pound pork shoulder or butt
4 cloves garlic, finely minced
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
1 teaspoon oregano or marjoram
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 tablespoon white vinegar
2 teaspoons salt
For the sandwiches:
Sliced Swiss cheese
Rolls (hoagie rolls or something oblong work best)
1. For the pernil: Combine garlic, pepper, oregano or marjoram, olive oil, vinegar and salt. Rub pork with garlic mixture and refrigerate overnight. Cook in a Crock pot on low for 8 hours.
2. To assemble the sandwiches, mix together equal parts mayonnaise and honey mustard. Spread sauce on both sides of a roll. Layer cheese, ham, pickles, pernil, and another slice of cheese on the bottom of a roll; top with other half of roll.
3. Press sandwiches in a panini press or skillet until bread is crispy and cheese is melted.
