Here’s a slider recipe using grilled pork… make it for your fun summer parties! >> Cubano Sliders
I’ve had a Cubano sandwich a few times in my life. It’s a Cuban sandwich filled with roasted pork, ham, Swiss cheese and mustard. You’ll find them in abundance in Florida- and you’ll spot copycat versions all over the US. But there really is nothing better than a truly genuine classic Cubano… made by someone who knows what they’re doing! I decided to surprise my husband this year and make his favorite sandwich in slider form: Cubano Sliders. I’m not Cuban, and I’ve never lived in Florida, but these little sandwiches are my best copycat.
The pork used for the recipe is from Smithfield’s line of already-marinated pork. I used the Peppercorn and Garlic Pork Tenderloin for my sliders- it’s 100% fresh pork slow marinated in peppercorns and garlic. I love that it comes pre-marinated… it saves me time in the kitchen when I’m crazy busy assembling dinner! You’ll be able to locate Smithfield’s already-marinated pork tenderloin, loin filet and pork sirloin at your market.
