4 Sandwiches

Time Needed:
Prep time: 10 Minutes
Cook time: 20 Minutes


  • 1 Southside fully smoked Pork Steak, sliced into thin strips
  • 4 bolillo rolls
  • 1/3 lb. thinly sliced smoked ham
  • 1/3 lb. thinly sliced Swiss cheese
  • 1 cup sliced pickles
  • mayonnaise
  • yellow mustard

Preheat oven or grill (indirect setup) to 400F

To assemble the sandwiches: Slice the rolls in half horizontally. Brush the cut surfaces of the rolls with mayonnaise on one side and mustard on the other.

Layer the sandwiches as follows: Sliced pork steak, ham, pickle, and then Swiss cheese.

Wrap each sandwich individually with foil.

Place the foil wrapped sandwiches on a baking sheet and then top with another baking sheet, slightly flattening the sandwiches in between. Weigh down the top baking sheet with a brick or other heavy oven-safe pan. You’re basically creating an oven-ready sandwich press.

Bake in the oven or on the grill for 5-6 minutes per side, until bread is lightly crisp and the cheese is melting. Remove from heat, unwrap, and serve warm.

Recommended Tools:
2 baking sheets
brick or heavy oven-safe pan
