One of my most favorite sandwiches is the classic Cuban sandwich. A classic Cuban sandwich is typically made with roast pork, ham, Swiss, pickles, and mustard on Cuban bread, then heated and melted on a panini press. Is a great simple sandwich that is perfect to make into a quesadilla. In this recipe below I took the simple flavors in a quick and easy Cuban quesadilla. The quickly cooked pork, dill pickles and melted swiss cheese is defiantly a good representative of the classic sandwich.
In a bowl, combine the sliced pork, salt, cumin, garlic, black pepper and lime zest. Mix until the pork is covered with the spices. Let marinate for 5 minutes.
Over medium-high heat, add 2 tablespoons of oil and cook the pork until fully cooked and tender, about 5 minutes. Remove from heat and transfer to a clean plate.
On a clean surface, lay out 4 of the tortillas out. Spread 1 tablespoon of dijon over each tortilla. Top each with a ¼ cup of swiss cheese, cooked pork and about a ¼ cup of pickles. Top with the remaining tortillas.
Heat a skillet over medium heat. Add 2 tablespoons of oil until about to smoke. Add one of the quesadillas, cook both sides until golden brown and the cheese is melted inside. Remove from the pan and repeat with the remaining oil and quesadillas. Cut each quesadilla into quarters and serve with additional dijon mustard and pickles.
