Cuban Mojo Pulled Pork

  • 4 lbs pork shoulder/pork butt
  • Juice of 2 oranges
  • Juice of 1 1/2 limes
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 teaspoons ground cumin
  • 2 teaspoons dried oregano
  • 1/4 teaspoon red pepper flakes
  • 2 bay leaves
  • 3/4 tablespoon Kosher salt
  • 1 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil


  • 6 Cuban rolls, sliced open (you can also use telera or bolillo rolls, or Italian bread)
  • 24 slices Swiss cheese
  • 18 slices honey ham
  • 12 slices pickles
  • Mustard
  • 4 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 1/2 teaspoons garlic powder
  • 24 slices Genoa salami (optional)


  • Poke the pork shoulder all over with a knife. Cut the pork shoulder into large chunks and place in a large slow cooker.
  • Add all the Mojo marinade ingredients to the slow cooker and mix well to combine. Cook on LOW for about 6-7 hours until tender.
  • When ready, shred the meat using a fork.
  • In the microwave oven, melt butter and garlic powder, and brush the bread all over with it.
  • Assemble the sandwich: For each sandwich, spread mustard on the bottom half, layer on 2 slices cheese cheese, 3 slices of honey ham, 4 slices salami (if using), pulled pork, 2 pickle slices, and 2 more slices Swiss cheese. Spread the inside of the top bread half with mustard and top the sandwich. Place sandwich on a hot panini press until golden brown.
  • Serve with your favorite side. I served these sandwiches with chips.
