Cuban’s To Go. This is the best place around to get a fresh made Cuban Sandwich- bar none.
Unfortunately, I no longer hang out around Lee Rd. any more and when I am in the area, the place is usually closed. BUMMMMMMER When the mood strikes we now resort to Publix sub sandwiches.
I hate the fact that they put mayonnaise on the Cuban. This is not right. And when I request a Cuban at the counter, they always point me to the pre-made ones in the cooler. NOOOO, I want a fresh one without mayo.
Anyhow, last night Nick wanted a Cuban for dinner. So, we hiked to Publix deli and bought the ingredients needed to make the best Cuban this side of town! Mayo free!
I linked this to the Food Network featuring the recipe from Cuban’s To Go. I did not use this, but here’s my version…
Make a sandwich using the whole loaf of bread. Smash the sandwich as much as you can- goal is to get it 1/3 as thick.
Spread the crust with butter and grill. Cut at a long angle, serve with hot sauce.
I decided to add more Cuban flair to this meal and attempted to make Yucca fries and plantain. Hum, great idea gone bad. I would have to research some recipes to get it to taste like Herber’s Cuban Cafe… That place is another story- love, love, love it!
