Butifarra (Peruvian pork baguette)

butifarra peru

Butifarras are, for me, the world’s best sandwich. A big claim I know, but just try it and you’ll be hooked. It’s just such a wonderful combination… fresh and spicy salsa, fragrant coriander, earthy, juicy jamon del pais ham and crusty french bread. I defy you not to love this!


  • A few slices of jamon del pais
  • A couple of tablespoons of salsa criolla
  • Fresh baguette or crusty roll
  • A couple of leaves of lettuce
  • Mayo (optional)
  • Aji hot sauce (optional)

Step-by-step instructions

  1. Open the baguette and firstly add a layer of lettuce, just enough to cover the base.
  2. Add the ham, and mayo and aji if using.
  3. Top generously with salsa criolla, close the baguette and tuck in to the world’s best sandwich!
