Ingredients

How to make it

  • Preheat oven to 450F.
  • Mash the garlic, salt, pepper, and cumin together to form a paste. Rub the paste on the pork tenderloin and place in a small roasting pan.
  • Roast at 450F for 20 to 25 minutes, or until it reaches an internal temperature of 155F.
  • Remove from oven and let rest 10 to 15 minutes.
  • Cut the pork into thin slices.
  • Layer the pork, pickled onions and peppers, and cheese between slices of bread.
  • Heat half the olive oil in a cast iron skillet over medium heat until the surface shimmers.
  • Add two sandwiches and cover pan with foil.
  • Weigh down the foil-covered sandwiches with a heavy skillet and one or two heavy cans, or a brick covered with aluminum foil.
  • Cook until the sandwiches are brown on the bottom (3 to 5 minutes), remove the weights, turn the sandwiches over, and cook until brown on the other side.
  • Repeat with the remaining oil and the other two sandwiches.
  • Cut sandwiches in half and serve immediately with french fries or potato chips.
