Turn leftover pork roast into yummy sandwiches that are sure to satisfy the biggest appetites.

Turn leftover pork roast into delicious, hunger-satisfying man sandwiches that are sure to please the biggest appetite. If you’re feeding a crowd, simply use the entire roast for the sandwiches, layer the meat on 4 baguettes and cut into 16 sandwiches.

PREP: 10 minutes
COOK: 15 minutes per sandwich

  • 1 baguette
  • 1 Cuban-Style Pork Roast, plus pork and pan drippings
  • Mustard
  • Mayonnaise
  • 8 slices ham
  • 8 slices Swiss cheese
  • 4 pepperoncini peppers
  1. Slice baguette crosswise into 4 even pieces. Slice each piece open in half lengthwise. Spoon some pan drippings over the bread. Spread half of each piece with mustard and the other half with mayonnaise. Layer on a few pieces of shredded pork, 2 to 3 slices of ham, and 2 slices of Swiss cheese. Slice peppers thinly and add to each sandwich. Close each sandwich. Wrap sandwiches in foil.
  2. Heat a heavy skillet (preferably cast iron) over medium heat and place 1 to 2 sandwiches in the pan. Place another heavy pan on top and press to flatten the sandwiches. Cook for 10 to 15 minutes, until toasted and heated through. Repeat with remaining sandwiches and serve warm.
  3. Alternatively, you can use a Panini press to toast sandwiches.
