Cubano Steam Bun

Ingredients

  • 1 lb pork tenderloin

  • 1 Tbsp smoked paprika

  • 1 Tbsp cumin

  • 1 Tbsp chili powder

  • 2 mantou steam buns

  • ½ lb honey ham, sliced

  • ⅓ lb Gruyère, sliced

  • Thick pickle slices

  • Celery seed

  • For the cilantro-lime mustard:

  • 1 cup mustard

  • ½ cup cilantro, chopped

  • ¼ cup fresh lime juice

Let's get Cooking...

  1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Combine paprika, cumin, and chili powder. Coat pork tenderloin generously with the spice mixture. In a hot cast-iron skillet, sear pork on all sides. Transfer entire pan to oven and cook for about 20 minutes. Let rest before slicing.

  2. Steam buns in a bamboo steamer for about 5 minutes.

  3. In a small bowl, combine all ingredients for the cilantro-lime mustard.

  4. In a skillet lightly coated with oil, add two slices of ham. Top each with a slice of Gruyère, another slice of ham, another piece of cheese, and another piece of ham. Spread cilantro-lime mayo over the top, then cover the pan and allow cheese to melt, about 3-5 minutes.

  5. Place the meat and cheese stack in a warm bun, then top with sliced pork, mustard, more cheese and pickles.

  6. Torch the outside to give the bun a crunchy, crust-like finish.
