This sandwiches may seem like they are a lot of work but they really aren't. You just have to suffer through smelling there goodness as they cook and you starve to eat them. Growing up part of my life in Florida I had many Cuban Sandwiches. These are not quite as good but they are close. One of these times when we are back in Florida I am going to have to pay close attention to how they make theirs. I seem to be missing a seasoning they use. Until then we will have to settle with my almost perfect Cuban Sandwiches.

1 3/4-2 lbs of pork shoulder (at room temp)
6 cloves garlic
kosher salt (to taste)
fresh crack pepper (to taste)

Basting Sauce
1 1/4 cup white grapefruit juice
1 cup fresh orange juice
1/3 cup fresh lemon juice
2 tbsp fresh lime juice
zest of on orange
zest of one lemon
zest of one lime

Crock Pot Sauce
1 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
3 cloves garlic (minced)
1/4 cup sweet white onion (diced)
1/2 tsp Chile Powder
1/2 tsp cumin
2/3 cup ketchup
3 tbsp white grapefruit juice
3 tbsp lemon juice
1 tbsp lime juice
1 tbsp soy sauce
1 tbsp teriyaki sauce
2 tbsp 1 tsp red wine vinegar
1/2 tsp fresh crack pepper
1/4 tsp oregano
1/4 tsp liquid smoke (mesquite)
1 cup water

Sandwich Spread
1 clove garlic
1 small green bell pepper (diced)
1 Small red chili pepper (diced)
1 vine tomato (diced)
1 slice deli bacon (crisped and diced)

Sandwich makings
Mini dill pickles (sliced)
Swiss cheese or your choice of cheese slices
mayonnaise (if desired)
mustard (if desired)
multi grain sourdough bread slices or hoagie rolls

Preheat the oven to 425 degrees.

In a medium mixing bowl whisk together all basting sauce ingredients.

In a small mixing bowl mush together salt, pepper and garlic until a smooth past has been formed.

Using a small sharp knife slice small slits over the pork. Now rub the garlic paste into the slices.

Place pork in a baking dish and cook for 20 min. Reduce the heat to 375 degrees and baste the roast ever 10 minutes for 30 minutes.

Combine all Crock pot sauce ingredients into crock pot.

Remove roast from oven and baste with remaining basting sauce. Allow 10 minutes to cool and then slice the meat into 1/4-1/2 inch pieces and add to a Crock pot. Pour in sauce and cook for 3-4 hours on low heat setting. Remove meat from crock pot and slice into small strips (will most likely fall to pieces.)

Mix together all sandwich spread ingredients in a small bowl

Put together sandwiches with your desired ingredients and enjoy!
