A Very Tasty Ultimate Cuban Sandwich DIY

Spread the love

I have actually tried this recipe and it is fantastic!  This DIY ultimate Cuban sandwich is a meat lovers paradise.  The bread and butter pickles make this sandwich divine.  A great main course for your Super Bowl party (Go Broncos!).  The only thing I did differently was to use my slow cooker rather than a pressure cooker.  Thanks to Tyler Florence and Food Network for this recipe.
