Vietnamese Style Banh Mi

Makes 4 servings
Hands-on time: 25 minutes
Total preparation time: 25 minutes

3 tablespoons unseasoned rice vinegar
1 tablespoon sugar
Kosher salt
One 5-inch piece seedless (English) cucumber
2 medium carrots
One 4-inch piece daikon
2 medium scallions
1 large jalapeño chile
3/4 cup mayonnaise
2 tablespoons hot chili sauce (preferably sriracha)
1 Spicy Roast Pork Tenderloin (reserved from previous recipe)
Four 6-inch baguette pieces
1/4 pound thinly sliced cooked ham
1/4 pound sliced liverwurst (optional)

Whisk together the rice vinegar, 2 teaspoons of sugar, and 1/4 teaspoon salt in a medium bowl. Thinly slice enough of the reserved cucumber with the skin left on to make 1 cup. Coarsely shred (preferably using the shredding disc of a food processor) the carrots and daikon (about 3/4 cups each). Trim and slice the scallions (about 1/4 cup); halve, seed, and finely chop the jalapeño (about 2 tablespoons). Stir the cucumber, carrots, daikon, scallions, and jalapeno into the vinegar mixture.

Meanwhile, combine the mayonnaise with the hot chili sauce and the remaining 1 teaspoon sugar. Thinly slice the pork tenderloin.

Split the baguette pieces horizontally. Spread the cut surfaces with the mayonnaise mixture. On the bottom half of the baguette pieces, arrange the pork, ham, liverwurst (if using), and pickled vegetable mixture. Add the top halves of the baguette pieces and serve.

    What are the nutritional values? Love the recipe. We substitute Hudson’s Seven Day Slaw for the pickled vegetables.

      Jim, so sorry but I don’t do nutritional break downs. If you leave off the pate, it is not so caloric. Nice idea about the slaw!

    I like your Vietnamese tips. I need to go to new restaurants. I’ll have to try beef noodles.
