Is it worth the effort to roast your own pork for these sandwiches? Absolutely. This Cuban-style roast, called lechon, is the real deal. Try serving these as finger sandwiches by slicing each sandwich into thirds.
If you can’t find boneless pork butt, buy bone-in and have your butcher cut out the bone. Be sure to account for the weight of the bone when calculating the 4 lb. of meat you need here. A 5-1/2-lb. bone-in pork butt should do it.
From Tampa where the Cuban Sandwich was invented. You can omit all the jalapenos if you want. Use real Cuban Bread or follow a recipe (usually calls for lard), needs about 30 cloves of garlic sliced and embedded into the fat park of pork butt and soaks overnight in the mojo. Lot of onions when you roast it keeps it off the bottom of the pan. After done, remove pork and pour in mojo and mix with onions and heat back up, this makes a fantastic dipping sauce, a Cuban Dip if you will. Enjoy.
