Okay, okay, okay. Raise your hand if you’ve watched the movie Chef? Now, raise your hand if you had a vicious craving for a Cubano as soon as the end credits started rolling? Yep, that’s what I thought.

We were no different. As soon as we finished the movie, Cody and I both grabbed our phones and started googling for restaurants that served these bomb-looking sandwiches.

We found a few, tried them all over the course of a few weeks and let me tell you, we weren’t disappointed.

Of course, our new-found love for Cubano sandwiches isn’t very realistic health-wise – so we needed to Chirpy-fy it ASAP. What we ended up coming up with is this completely wonderful Low-Carb Keto Bunless Cubano aka Cuban Stuffed Pork.

Aaaahhh, I’m drooling about the deliciousness just typing it out.

How to make Keto Low-Carb Cubano:

What makes this healthy Keto Cubano recipe so incredibly yummy is, of course, the marinated pork. It’s ALL in the Cubano marinade. Ahhh…that magnificent, magnificent marinade though…

We did a lot of research and tried a bunch of different Cubanos in the process until we had the perfect concoction.

Once your pork is deliciously marinaded, you add all the other typical goodies like:

  1. mustard,
  2. pickles,
  3. sliced ham,
  4. ooey-gooey melted Swiss cheese,

Ingredients

Instructions

  • Blend all the ingredients for the marinade together and pour into a large ziplock bag. Add the pork and marinade overnight in the fridge.
  • Pre-heat oven to 350ºF/180ºC
  • Remove pork from marinade and spread mustard on the inside. Add ham, pickles, Swiss cheese and fold over. Secure with toothpicks.
  • Sear the stuffed pork in a medium/hot pan for approximately 2 minutes per side.
  • Transfer to a baking dish and slide into the oven for about 25-35 minutes.
Note: We like to boil the remaining marinade for a minute or two and add a dash of mustard to use as a dipping sauce for the pork.

  1. I made these last night and they were E-X-C-E-L-L-E-N-T!!! Even my fussy eater loved them, in fact she told me they are one of the best things I’ve made and to add them to our rotation!
    I used Serrano ham and in half of them I used Daiya Swiss Cheese (because I’m allergic to dairy) unfortunately I had to prepare the mojo without mint but it was still delicious.

      1. Hi Shay,
        I am very anxious to try this recipe. However, I can’t until I have the macronutrients listed.
        I would like to add my endorsement to have these values soon.
        Thank you,
        Tonya

        1. Hi Tonya! I’ve added a nutrition label, but please keep in mind that this is an approximation. It’s hard to judge just how much of the marinade you actually eat vs what gets thrown away. In this case, it’s better to overestimate than underestimate. Hope it helps.
