Photo: It’s All a Bánh Mi

Photo credit: Anthony Beal

This is a picture of half of a sandwich I built earlier.  It was my first crack at making a Bánh Mi, and for a first attempt, the result was encouraging.  Tasted good enough that the sandwich’s other half didn’t hang around long enough to be photographed.  Slices of roasted pork layered into a sub roll (the first market I visited was out of the soft baguettes customarily used for these sandwiches, and I didn’t have time to make additional stops) with fresh cilantro, cucumber, sliced jalapeño, shredded carrots, daikon, and crushed peanuts. The cucumbers, carrots, and daikon swam for a bit in a blend of rice vinegar, fish sauce, and mirin before going in.  Fun on a bun.

    The ones I usually get at the Pho places are so tiny. I like your American sized sandwich. Yum!

      Thanks! It was fun to make. I’ll probably just use that same size roll every time, as it’s pretty filling. Maybe next time I’ll try pork belly or meatballs…
