I lived in Florida for a while and loved the pork I ate there, so I went about making it for myself. The flavorful meat makes amazing Cuban sandwiches, but you can also use it in traditional pulled pork sandwiches or tacos. —Lacie Griffin, Austin, Texas

Ingredients

  • 1 cup orange juice
  • 1/2 cup lime juice
  • 12 garlic cloves, minced
  • 2 tablespoons spiced rum, optional
  • 2 tablespoons ground coriander
  • 2 teaspoons salt
  • 2 teaspoons white pepper
  • 2 teaspoons pepper
  • 1 teaspoon cayenne pepper

  • Yellow mustard, optional
  • 16 dill pickle slices
  • 1-1/2 pounds thinly sliced deli ham
  • 1-1/2 pounds Swiss cheese, sliced

Directions

In a 6- or 7-qt. slow cooker, combine first nine ingredients. Add pork; cook, covered, on low until tender, 8-10 hours. Remove roast; shred with two forks. In a large skillet, heat oil over medium-high heat. Cook meat in batches until lightly browned and crisp in spots.
Cut each loaf of bread in half lengthwise. If desired, spread mustard over cut sides of bread. Layer bottom halves of bread with pickles, pork, ham and cheese. Replace tops. Cut each loaf into eight slices. Yield: 16 servings.

Test Kitchen tips
  • You can use regular bread and toast your Cuban sandwiches as you would a grilled cheese.
  • To make a Cuban wrap, place meat and toppings in flour tortillas.
