Cubanos-from-Chef

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.

As much as we love watches with dozens of complications and functions, there’s something to be said for a simple and understated design. The Nixon Patrol watch is a modern interpretation of classic designs that has everything you need and nothing you don’t. Made with a no-nonsense 42mm stainless case, a rock-solid Miyota quartz movement and a stainless 3-link bracelet, it’s as clean and slim as it is durable and attractive. Add in the bold indices on the face to complete the sleek and stylish look. This is the watch for the makers and doers.
