Time: 3 hours 25 minutes
Yield: 10 servings
Every bite really is a little piece of paradise! Hot Paradise Sandwiches are little wonders that taste fresh from the delicatessen, with hot ham slow-cooked in a tropical, smoky, and tangy sauce topping a fluffy kaiser roll with a steamy pineapple sauce. Melty Swiss cheese brings cheesy goodness to the already incredible equation that is Hot Paradise Sandwiches, and the results are big smiles all around. Who needs a vacation with these on your plate?
Mix together the pineapple, onion, light brown sugar, and mustard.
Place half of the pineapple mixture into a 5-quart slow cooker.
Top the mixture in the slow cooker with 1/2 of the ham.
Repeat the layers.
Cover and cook on low until heated through, for about 3-4 hours.
Using tongs, remove the ham from the slow cooker, leaving the pineapple mixture in the slow cooker. Keep the ham warm.
In a large saucepan, mix the cornstarch and water together until smooth.
Stir in the pineapple mixture.
Bring the mixture to a boil.
Reduce the heat to low.
Simmer, uncovered, until the mixture is slightly thickened, stirring occasionally.
Serve the ham, pineapple mixture, and cheese on the kaiser rolls.
