Banh Mi Sandwich

13 Sep

Banh mi is a Vietnamese sandwich made with marinated meat or tofu that packs a serious flavor punch.  The veggies and slaw are unique to Banh mi, and will leave you wanting more.

Banh mi is a Vietnamese sandwich made with a baguette.  There are several things that make this sandwich extra special: the meat has a super flavorful lemongrass marinade, which is excellent with pork, steak, or chicken; the pickled radish and carrots along with cucumber add a tart and cooling flavor that helps to counteract the spicy  jalapenos.  I promise you, you will fall in love with the Banh mi sandwich and will be craving one all the time.

If you have trouble finding dark (black) soy sauce and the pickled radish and carrots at your local grocer, you will be able to find them at asian markets.  You can even make your own slaw if you so choose, the recipe is below and goes very well as a side dish with other favorite asian meals.

Banh mi meat can be made with nearly any type of marinade, but is best with those that pack a lot of asian flavor and spices.
