Veal Cubano Sandwich

Prep Time:
15 mins.
Cook Time:
15 mins.


  • 4 small veal cutlets (about 2 oz. each), pounded to 1/4" to 1/8" thickness
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons adobo seasoning
  • 4 hero rolls (about 5-6”long), split
  • 2 tablespoons plus 2 teaspoons yellow mustard
  • 4 slices thinly sliced honey baked ham
  • 12 dill pickle chips (about 2 ½ oz.)
  • 4 slices thinly sliced Swiss cheese


  1. Sprinkle each side of veal with some adobo seasoning. Prepare a charcoal or gas grill or use grill pan on top of stove over medium heat. Grill veal cutlets 2 to 4 minutes, turning once. Remove cutlets to platter.
  2. Spread bottom and top of each roll with 1 teaspoon mustard. On the bottom half of each roll layer sliced ham, veal cutlets, 3 pickle slices and Swiss cheese. Cover each bottom with roll top.
  3. Wrap each sandwich in foil. Place sandwiches on grill or on grill pan. Place a panini press or heavy skillet on top of sandwiches to weigh/press them down. Grill sandwiches 8 to 10 minutes until cheese melts and bread is toasted. 
  4. Carefully unwrap each sandwich and cut in half; place on plate.
