Cuban Quesadillas Recipe


1 pork tenderloin 3/4 to 1 pound
3/4 teaspoon kosher salt
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
2 teaspoons olive oil
8 flour tortillas soft taco size
6 ounces Boar's Head SmokeMaster™ Black Forest Ham cut into 1/2 inch thick slices
3 dill pickles thinly sliced lengthwise
4 ounces shredded swiss cheese
4 ounces shredded mozzarella cheese
1/3 cup yellow mustard

  1. Heat the olive oil in a large pan on medium-high heat. Combine the salt, pepper and garlic powder and sprinkle over the pork.
  2. Place the pork in the pan, cook for 8-10 minutes on each side until pork is cooked through. Thinly slice the pork.
  3. Heat a grill pan, sandwich press or large skillet. Place 4 tortillas on a flat surface, top each tortilla with 1/4 cup of the shredded cheeses. Divide the pork, pickles and ham evenly between the 4 tortillas; sprinkle another 1/4 cup of cheese over the meats and place the 4 remaining tortillas on top.
  4. Cook each quesadilla for 3-5 minutes on each side or until golden brown and cheese has melted. Cut into quarters and serve with mustard on the side. (Oven directions: Bake at 400 degrees for 8 minutes)
