Cuban Panini with Quick Pickles

Cuban Panini with Quick Pickles

Cuban Panini with Quick Pickles for the true panini connoisseurs.

My husband’s all time favorite food is a good sandwich. Especially paninis. He will eat almost any kind of panini. And seeing that it was his birthday this week, I wanted to make him a special panini and I came across this recipe in the Shortcut Cooking magazine so I knew I had to try it.

I mean just the name of this panini sounds delicious. And the sandwich is fabulous too. Have you ever had pork marinated in orange juice and lemon and lemon juice? It’s totally divine! I’ve never had citrus flavored pork and I probably would have thought it weird before, but trust me, it works. It’s so good.
