Pair a Washington state red wine with this meaty wonder
Savvy match: Malbec is meant for meat. This meaty Cuban roast pork sandwich is a perfect match for the savory, spicy, sweet Malbec. While many people associate Malbec with Argentina, it also happens to be another notable Washington state red wine that pairs well with food.
Like many in Seattle, my first exposure to Cuban roast pork sandwiches was Paseo. I have since tasted many people’s Cubanos. Like in life, some were better than others, but every one I tried had something to offer. Below I have my recipe for a Cubano, a culmination of the many I have tried and tasted. Mine is neither authentic nor original — I am just looking to have a good sandwich, and isn’t that what life is all about?
