A traditional Cuban mojo sauce, or marinade, is made with citrus and garlic. This delicious pork loin is marinated, cooked in a slow cooker, then shredded and made into sandwiches.

Ingredients

Step 1

Combine melted fruit bars, pork, cilantro, garlic, cloves, oregano and bouillon in a large, resealable plastic bag. Seal and press with fingers to incorporate flavors. Refrigerate for 1 hour.

Step 2

Place bag contents into a slow cooker. Add chicken broth. Cook for 2 ½ hours on high.

Step 3

Remove pork from slow cooker and shred. Soak in some of the leftover juices to keep pork moist.

Step 4

Spread 1 tablespoon mustard on bottom half of bread. Layer with 3 tablespoons shredded pork, 2 slices of ham, 1 slice of cheese and 2 pickle strips. Top with top half of bread. Repeat with remaining ingredients.

Step 5

Heat a large skillet over medium heat. Place sandwiches in skillet and press with a cast iron skillet for 3 minutes. Slice and serve.

Tip:

If telera bread is not available, use French bread or bolillos.
