"My family makes these sandwiches with the leftovers of our Salvadorian Roast Turkey. The sandwiches are really messy, but really yummy, and totally worth the work."

cabbage, finely shredded
carrots, peeled and shredded
onion, thinly sliced lengthwise
crumbled dried oregano
mayonnaise, or to taste
crusty rolls, halved and lightly toasted
leftover roast turkey meat, shredded
16 thin slices
cucumber, thinly sliced
For the turkey I use Pavo de Salvadoreano (10 lb Turkey, 8 Roma Tomatoes, 1 Green Pepper, 1 can stewed tomatoes, ½ yellow onion, ¼ cup green pumpkin seeds, 1 dried pasilla ancho chile, 10 oz pimento filled green olives, ¼ tsp Cumin, 1 Tbsp Oregano Broil green pepper and Roma tomato. Remove skins. In blender blend Roma’s, green pepper, stewed tomatoes, onion, pumpkin seeds, pasilla ancho, cumin, oregano. Season Turkey with black pepper and cumin. Sear Turkey. Place in roasting pan and pour salsa over turkey With spoon add olives to salsa. Bake recommended time for size of your turkey) I then shred the turkey and place in a toasted roll. I mix mayo with my curtido (cabbage, carrot, onion) slice my tomato, cucumber and radish thin. I add watercrest as well. then i put a little sauce from the turkey over the filling. PERFECT! My slim hubby can down 3 of these. and all my kids love them (made to their own preference). Enjoy!
Made these sandwiches and thought they where good. They are messy so be prepared. My husband and daughter enjoyed them also. Instead of cutting up the cabbage I bought a bag of coleslaw mix which already had carrots in it so I used that. Worked out great. I still put in water like recipe says. Will make again. My daughter said I should get a job a subway told her I will pass. Thanks for the recipe.
these are the famous and whole time favorite "Panes con Pavo" in El Salvador!
meesy yes but delicious!
Haven't tried this yet, but I am SOOO thankful for the recipes from El Salvador, so I can make them for my husband, who is from Coatepeque, Santa Ana. Please post more!!
I'm sorry but i did not care for this. I'm salvadorian and this is not the way you make it. The only part that is okay is the curtido.
