An even better Cuban sandwich

Our Pan Con Bistec is not just a sandwich; it's a foray into a tradition that celebrates simplicity and flavor. The Barbaro Mojo Cuban Hot Sauce is not your average hot sauce. With its robust blend of peppers, garlic, citrus, and a secret mix of spices, it elevates the sandwich from familiar to unforgettable.


  • 1 loaf of fresh Cuban bread, split and toasted
  • 2 thinly sliced sirloin steaks
  • Sea salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste
  • Vegetable oil for frying
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 large white onion, thinly sliced
  • Barbaro Mojo Cuban Hot Sauce, to taste
  • 4 slices of Swiss cheese
  • Optional toppings: lettuce, tomato slices
  • Optional spreads: mayonnaise, mustard

Step-by-Step Instructions:

  1. Prep the Steak: Season your thinly sliced steaks generously with salt and pepper.
  2. Cook to Perfection: In a skillet, heat a drizzle of oil and cook the steaks over medium-high heat. Add a touch of garlic for that aromatic allure. Once done, set them aside.
  3. Caramelized Goodness: In the same skillet, sauté your onions until they're golden and sweet.
  4. Build the Layers: Spread your bread with mayo and mustard if you're using them. Then, stack your steak, sautéed onions, a drizzle of Barbaro Mojo Cuban Hot Sauce, and a slice of Swiss cheese.
  5. The Final Toast: Press your sandwich in a hot skillet or panini press until the cheese is deliciously melted and the bread is irresistibly crispy.
  6. Serve and Savor: Cut into your Pan Con Bistec and enjoy the melty, spicy goodness!

The Secret Ingredient:

Barbaro Mojo Cuban Hot Sauce is what sets this sandwich apart. Its unique base of Mojo (pronounced "Mo-Ho") uses less vinegar than typical hot sauces, ensuring a flavor that's bold without being overpowering.

Tips for the Perfect Sandwich:

  • Bread Matters: Cuban bread is the traditional choice, but any good, crusty bread will do in a pinch.
  • The Right Heat: Adjust the amount of Barbaro Mojo to your personal heat preference.
  • Keep it Juicy: Don't overcook the steak. Thin slices mean quick cooking times!
