Yes! this is when leftovers are the best! I made a delicious Slow Cooker Mojo Pork a couple of days ago and being a family of four, that is a lot of pork to consume in one sitting. I used an almost 4 lb pork butt and rendered enough for at least 12 people. Imagine how much I have left!
Because I always repurpose my leftovers, what more classic could I get than to use the Cuban seasoned pork to make a Cuban sandwich. So here I am today, sharing my recipe with you. This recipe is simple and brings a whole other dimension to this pork.
There is actually such a thing as Cuban bread and many recipes on Pinterest for it but I prefer my sandwiches with sourdough so I decided to use it for this recipe as well. Let’s dive in!
