FANFOOD 2 for 2 RESULTS week 18














Week 18 was a mixed bag for the FANFOOD 2 for 2.  Out of 4 starts, just half of them were quality. Here are the results followed by a great recipe, this time it’s a Cuban Sandwich with Zucchini Pickles.




Week 17

FANFOOD goes 2 for 4  

Season: .642 (43 for 67)


1. Tim Hudson


Tim Hudson took a loss Saturday, allowing three earned runs on six hits in six-plus innings and striking out one in his team’s 5-0 defeat against the Royals. Hudson (8-9) served up a solo home run in the fifth inning before opening the seventh by allowing a double and two singles, which caused him to be removed with no outs in the frame. He hasn’t surrendered more than three earned runs in any of his last five starts, but Hudson is just 1-3 over that stretch. He owns a 2.81 ERA and 92:24 K:BB ratio in 150 1/3 innings. Hudson is scheduled to face the Phillies next Saturday. He wasn’t a factor into the decision in his other start of the week, Monday afternoon against the Mets in New York. The right-hander permitted three runs — two earned — on seven hits and two walks while striking out two over five innings of a 4-3 victory.

2. Wade Miley


Wade Miley wasn’t a factor into the decision at home Sunday afternoon against the Rockies. The left-hander yielded three runs on five hits and two walks while striking out eight over six innings of a 5-3 defeat in extras. Miley looked sharp in his first start since a 10-run meltdown earlier in the week. He owns a 4.61 ERA and a 1.32 WHIP over 25 starts (156 1/3 innings). He will make his next start Saturday in Miami. In the aforementioned other start of week 18, Miley was roughed up, giving up 10 earned runs on nine hits and three walks in 4 2/3 innings and striking out four in his team’s 12-2 defeat against the Royals. He surrendered his first three runs on a third-inning home run, and the Royals smacked another three-run homer in the fifth. Miley gave up another run on a wild pitch and eventually left the game with the bases loaded before a grand slam put three more runs on his line.

Cuban Sandwich with Zucchini Pickles





1 ½ cups apple cider vinegar
½ cup sugar
1 teaspoon ground turmeric
1 teaspoon mustard powder
1 teaspoon mustard seeds
1 large zucchini, sliced into ⅛”-thick rounds, preferably on a mandoline
½ large onion, thinly sliced
2 tablespoons kosher salt



1 medium onion, chopped
1 medium carrot, peeled, chopped
1 celery stalk, chopped
1 sprig oregano
1 sprig rosemary
1 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
2 cups low-sodium chicken broth
1 3-lb. skinless, boneless pork shoulder (Boston butt)
2 tablespoons olive oil
Kosher salt, freshly ground pepper
½ cup mayonnaise
2 tablespoons Dijon mustard
8 brioche buns, split
8 ounces soppressata, thinly sliced
8 ounces pepper Jack, thinly sliced





Bring vinegar, sugar, turmeric, mustard powder, and mustard seeds to a boil in a medium saucepan, stirring to dissolve sugar. Let cool.

Toss zucchini, onion, and salt in a large bowl and let stand until zucchini releases moisture, 30–35 minutes.

Pat zucchini and onion dry and transfer to a large jar. Pour pickling liquid over vegetables to submerge. Cover and chill at least 12 hours.

DO AHEAD: Zucchini can be pickled 
4 days ahead. Keep chilled.



Preheat oven to 300°. Combine onion, carrot, celery, oregano, rosemary, red pepper flakes, and broth in a Dutch oven or other large pot.

Place pork on top of vegetables and drizzle with oil; season pork with salt and pepper.

Cover and braise, turning pork occasionally, until pork is just falling apart, 3½–4 hours. Let cool.

Transfer pork to a large bowl, reserving 1 cup cooking liquid, and shred with a fork.

Add cooking liquid as needed to moisten pork (you may not use all of it).

Meanwhile, increase oven temperature to 400°. Mix mayonnaise and mustard in a small bowl and set aside.

Place both halves of buns, cut side up, on a rimmed baking sheet.

Layer soppressata, pork, and cheese on bottom halves of buns and bake until cheese is melted, about 
5 minutes.

Top bottom halves of buns with pickles; spread top halves of buns with reserved mayonnaise mixture and form sandwiches.

DO AHEAD: Pork can be braised and shredded 3 days ahead. Cover and chill. Bring to room temperature before using.
