I love it when the universe comes together. I made a pork loin wrapped in bacon for a Sunday dinner project. It was wonderful! We had a ton of leftovers and I pondered what to do with them.
I follow Chef Roy Choi and Director Jon Favreau on Instagram and saw that they were promoting a new film. The movie Chef features a food truck called El Jefe that makes Cuban Sandwiches. To promote the movie, Choi was having restaurant pop-ups featuring Cuban Sandwiches. I had a bit of food envy. I wanted a sandwich and they are in L.A. The solution, make my own. The Sandwich used my leftover pork, ham, Swiss Cheese, dill pickle and yellow mustard. I had Bolillo rolls and basted them with butter to give them a crunchy rich flavor.
This weekend we plan on seeing the movie. Maybe I will smuggle in a Cuban Sandwich.
