Our classic Cubano sandwich recipe, made famous in the Tampa Florida neighborhood of Ybor City, features mojo-marinated roast pork tenderloin with deli-sliced ham, Genoa salami and Swiss cheese, thin-sliced pickles and mustard- all layered on soft buttery Cuban rolls grill pressed flat and crispy. We griddled our sandwiches topped with a heavy grill press for the perfect balance of golden crispy crust and rich juicy filling. Any heavy weight such as a cast iron skillet or even a heavy brick wrapped in foil works just as well.
When our chefs told us they wanted to make Halal Snack Packs, little did we know it would be a full meal occasion! The HSP, as it is known by afficiandos, apparently started in Australia and took off through digital conversations as people began sharing their HSP photos online. Find out more in our story about their origins, or simply make your own version. Just be sure to snap a photo and let us know how it turns out @FoodChannel.
