Vietnamese-Style Pork Sandwich

Vietnamese sandwiches are traditionally made ahead of time and wrapped tightly in plastic wrap, allowing the flavors to come together. You can assemble and wrap them up to 4 hours in advance and refrigerate.

Ingredients:

  • 2 cups very thinly sliced roast pork (see related
      recipe at left)
  • 2 Tbs. soy sauce
  • 1 large garlic clove, minced
  • 2 tsp. fish sauce
  • 1 baguette, about 24 inches long, split
      lengthwise
  • 1/4 cup mayonnaise
  • 1 small cucumber, peeled and thinly sliced
      lengthwise
  • 2 carrots, peeled and thinly sliced or shredded
  • 1 small red onion, thinly sliced
  • 1 jalapeño chili, seeded and thinly sliced or
      minced
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro

Directions:

Marinate the pork
In a small bowl, toss the pork with the soy sauce, garlic and fish sauce. Let stand for 5 minutes.

Assemble the sandwiches
Spread the cut sides of the baguette with the mayonnaise. Layer the pork, cucumber, carrots, onion, chili and cilantro on the bottom half of the baguette. Close the sandwich with the top half of the baguette and cut on the diagonal into 4 individual sandwiches. Serves 4.
