Open-face Cuban sandwiches

Lately we’ve been watching a lot of cooking shows, like 30 minute meals, Iron Chef America and Five ingredient Fix. A few days ago we were watching 30 minute meals with Rachel Ray and she made open-face Cuban sandwiches. With a few alterations, we decided to recreate these for dinner with some friends. Everyone loved them! (For reference: Rachel Ray also added yellow mustard and a pickle on top.)

Ingredients:

Equal parts ground pork and chorizo
1/3 of an onion, chopped
6 cloves of garlic
sweet rolls (cut in half)
Cumin, red pepper flakes and red cayenne pepper
1/2 cup beer (we used a blonde ale)
A little Ketchup or 1/4 cup tomato paste
Swiss cheese slices for topping 

Recipe:

1. Begin cooking your ground pork, preheat oven to 350 degrees, and cut up rolls.

2. Cut up your onion and garlic, cook in separate pot/pan.

3. Add chorizo and cook on medium heat for a few minutes.

4. Add your ketchup or tomato paste and cook for a few minutes.

5. Add your beer and cook off excess liquid.

6. Bake your rolls in the oven for 5-10 minutes (until crispy)

7. Place mixture on sandwich rolls, leave open. Add cheese to tops.

8. Heat a few minutes in oven, or until cheese melts.

9. Enjoy!
