Place 2 sandwiches in the pan, place a medium skillet on top of the sandwiches, then weigh it down with 4 15-ounces cans. Cook the sandwiches about 2 minutes until golden on one side; then, reduce the heat to medium-low, flip the sandwiches, replace the top skillet and cans, and cook another 2 minutes or until the second side is golden. Remove from heat and repeat with remaining sandwiches, adding more oil to the pan if needed. Serve with mandarain oranges on the side.
