4 tablespoons butter

1 pound seasoned roasted pork loin*, sliced thinly

1 pound smoked ham sliced thin

1/2 pound sliced Swiss cheese

Sliced dill pickles

Yellow mustard


* Season the pork loin with salt, pepper, and if desired, a mojo (a mixture of sour orange juice, garlic, and spices) .


  1. Preheat the griddle. Slice the bread loaves in half. Smear the butter on the cut sides of the bread. Add a dash of mustard and mayonnaise. Build each sandwich with the roasted pork, ham, cheese, and pickles. Place the sandwich on the hot griddle, cover with a sheet of aluminum foil, and place heavy iron skillet or sandwich press to flatten. Grill the sandwich for a few minutes on each side.
