Carnitas Cubano and Logo Reveal!

13 May
Carnitas Cubano

Carnitas Cubano

With an over-glut of carnitas on hand from recipe testing, I settled on whipping up some Cubano sammies, carnitas-style! No recipe really needed for this. Slather both sides of of two slices of bread with butter (I used Seattle Sourdough) and skillet grill one side of each. Spread mustard on grilled side, then layer carnitas or any other cooked pork, sliced ham, dill pickle slices, and Swiss cheese. Add the other grilled side face down on top, then press and grill until browned, using either a panini-style press or another heavy skillet on top. Oh my, decadent and finger-licking good!


Here is the logo for my new taco food cart!

I’m still deciding on colors and what-not, but my temporary white sign really pops on the cart. One more inspection and permit to go, then I’m in business!

    Aha. So both sides are grilled. That must be the trick. Sounds delish and decadent. Thanks for the tip!

    The logo is cute, Kathryn. I think it’s right for a food truck. Maybe you can even get a flag with the logo to fly from the truck when it’s parked.
    You had me at Cubano. By the time you finished I was drooling! I sure wish I could go down the street to your truck and buy some. πŸ˜€ Mega hugs.

    The sandwich sounds amazing – toasted on both sides? That’s a cool twist! I love the logo. I can’t wait to see what colors, if any, you decide on. I love the perky little flag and the distressing. I think it’s really a plus that you’re personalizing with Austin because that brings something pretty special to the party!

      Have you thought about a distressed blue jean look for the Austin and red white and blue for the flag?

      Thanks so much Mollie! I went with bright lime green for the background. I got matching t-shirts and baseball caps to wear in the cart. I’m going with the “funky” Austin theme. Plus people can see me a mile away, HA!
