CHEF JOHN'S CUBAN BREAD

I didn't think I liked Cuban sandwiches until I had one on real Cuban bread--what a difference! This bread uses lard and a double-hit of yeast plus a fermented starter. All this adds extra flavor and lift.

Time 12h15m

Yield 12

Number Of Ingredients 11

½ teaspoon active dry yeast
½ cup warm water
½ cup flour
1 package active dry yeast
2 teaspoons white sugar
¾ cup warm water
3 tablespoons lard
2 teaspoons fine salt
3 cups all-purpose flour, or as needed - divided
1 tablespoon cornmeal
Water to spray tops of loaves

Steps:

  • Combine 1/2 cup warm water, 1/2 teaspoon yeast, and 1/2 cup flour in a bowl or measuring cup. Whisk the starter until well blended. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate overnight.
  • Place 1 package active dry yeast and 2 teaspoons sugar in a mixing bowl. Pour in 3/4 cup warm water. Let rest 15 minutes to ensure yeast is alive (bubbles will form on surface). Add lard and salt to bowl; add 1 cup of the flour. Mix until all ingredients are incorporated and dough forms a sticky ball. Add the starter (reserving 1/4 cup if you want to keep the starter going, if desired. Otherwise add it all.). Sprinkle most of the rest of the flour on the dough, reserving 1/2 cup to be used if needed when kneading.
  • Turn dough out onto a lightly floured work surface and knead until dough comes together in a firm ball, adding additional flour only as needed. Dough should be soft and supple with just a bit of tackiness on the surface.
  • Place dough in a bowl and coat surface with a little vegetable oil. Cover bowl with a damp kitchen towel and place in a warm spot to rise. Let rise until at least doubled in size, about 2 hours.
  • Line two rimmed baking sheets with parchment paper and sprinkle with a little cornmeal.
  • Transfer dough onto lightly floured surface. Lightly press the dough into a rectangle with your lightly floured hands. Divide dough in half and press and shape each half into a long 1/2-inch thick rectangle about 12 inches long. Roll up tightly starting at the long end to form a skinny loaf. Flatten a bit. Transfer each loaf to a prepared baking sheet and dust with a bit of flour. Cover with a light, dry towel and let rise until doubled in size, 1 1/2 to 2 hours.
  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C). Cut a 1/4-inch deep slit down the top of the loaves with a sharp knife or razor. Mist loaves lightly with water.
  • Place pans in pre-heated oven, one pan on lower rack, one on higher rack. After 10 minutes, switch pan positions. Continue to bake until loaves are golden brown, 10 to 15 minutes longer. Transfer loaves to cooling rack and let cool to room temperature before slicing.

CHEF JOHN'S CUBAN SANDWICH



Chef John's Cuban Sandwich image

Here's how I build a Cuban, or Cubano, sandwich. I like to use pulled pork. Carnitas would work too. These ingredients and amounts are open to your own personal preferences, but here's the general idea.

Provided by Chef John

Categories     World Cuisine Recipes     Latin American     Caribbean

Time 21m

Yield 2

Number Of Ingredients 9

¼ cup mayonnaise
¼ cup mustard
1 pinch cayenne pepper
1 (8 ounce) loaf Cuban bread
8 slices Swiss cheese
6 thin slices smoked fully-cooked ham
1 ½ cups cooked pulled pork, heated
1 large dill pickle, sliced thinly lengthwise
2 tablespoons butter, or as needed

Steps:

  • Mix mayonnaise, mustard, and cayenne together in a bowl to make the sauce.
  • Trim off ends of bread. Cut loaf in half and evenly split bread to make tops and bottoms of 2 sandwiches. Spread each half on both sides generously with the mayo/mustard sauce.
  • Divide sandwich ingredients between the two bottom halves in this order: 2 slices Swiss cheese, 3 slices ham, hot cooked pork, pickle slices, and 2 more slices of Swiss cheese. Place tops on sandwiches.
  • Melt butter in a heavy skillet over medium heat. Place sandwiches in skillet and press down with a heavy weight (such as another skillet or foil-wrapped bricks). Toast sandwiches until bread is crisp and filling is heated through, 3 or 4 minutes per side.

  • Heat a cast-iron griddle over medium-high heat. Butter inside the bread, lay it facedown on the pan, and toast until golden brown. Set aside.
  • In the same pan, add a bit of melted butter along with the ham and pork slices. Cook them for a couple of minutes, turning them occasionally—you just need to heat them through and brown them a bit.
  • To build the sandwich, start layering from the bottom up. Add the griddled pork and ham, Swiss cheese, and pickles. Lastly, slather the mustard from edge to edge on top bun. Close the sandwich and generously brush melted butter on top of bread. Add the sandwich to the buttered heated griddle again, pressing down on it with a spatula. Cook until golden brown and the cheese is melting. Flip and cook for another couple of minutes, pressing it down again with a spatula.
