Cubanos were one of our top 3 sandwiches long before we saw Chef, so even we were surprised when the movie made them look better than any we’d seen. The problem was, the movie never lays out a recipe, so even though we know approximately what goes on them, we’d just be guessing when it came to marinades, spices, pickle styles, or really anything that isn’t a slice of ham or roasted pork. Luckily, Binging with Babish understands our plight and took it upon himself to rectify it. In this video, he lays out an easy to follow recipe with less work than we were expecting, albeit one that takes much more time. But the end of the video has him produce a sandwich that looks exactly like Jon Favreau and John Leguizamo’s, guaranteeing that we’re stopping by a butcher tonight to pick up some pork.
If you don’t have a cigar cutter on hand when you want to light up a cigar you need to get all MacGyver with it. And since a cigar cutter isn’t part of the average everyday carry collection, this can happen often. Instead of adding another item to your already packed pockets consider having your knife pull double duty. The Cigar Cutter Pocket Knife packs a cigar cutter right in the handle. Pair that with the long-lasting AUS-8 stainless blade and you have a tool that will assist in small chores and in enjoying a cigar when you’re done with them.
