I’m doing more cooking than writing these days. I’m still breaking in the new kitchen and having a lot of fun doing it. That’s eating (Ha, ha. See what I did there) into my writing time, so I’ve got a backlog of posts to make.
While I get caught up, here’s a little something I whipped up yesterday.
It’s a homemade Cuban Sandwich which is pretty much as homemade as you can get.
I made the ham (substitute a meatier cut for pork belly). I made the roast pork. I made the pickles. I blended the mustard. I made the Cuban bread (I used my homemade sourdough starter instead of the polish this recipe calls for). I even rendered the lard that went into the Cuban bread.
The only thing I didn’t make from scratch was the Swiss cheese.
So when I say I whipped it up yesterday, I actually mean it’s been three weeks from the start of the project (curing the ham) to the finished product.
