This is a traditional Spanish bocadillo that uses thin slices of grilled pork loin served with melted cheese and red peppers. In my version of Bocadillo de Lomo, I have substituted the pork loin with delicious secreto ibérico pork and used cured Manchego cheese for a punchier flavour that works well with the sweet confit piquillo peppers.
