Vietnamese Sandwich

In this video, you’ll see how to make an authentic Vietnamese sandwich loaded with spicy pork, cucumber, and cilantro. These delicious baguette sandwiches, called banh mi in Vietnamese, celebrate French-influenced Vietnamese cooking and are a nice break from everyday sandwiches. They’re also a great way to use up leftover pork! Watch the video, then get SONNYCHIBA’s 5-star recipe for a Vietnamese Sandwich. The key here is the garlic chili sauce. You can find the chili sauce in most larger grocery stores; substitute sambal or Korean chili paste if like.

Not the Bahn Mi sandwich I know! Pulled pork...yes...not loin chops that thick...

No, no, no!!! Not the Banh Mi that I'm use to at all!! Pork is to thick and veggies are way too thick. Also missing the pickled carrots and daikon, the jalapeno rings and sprigs of cilantro. I'll stick w/my fav Vietnamese restaurant for Banh Mi or those made by my friends mother. I would love to have her recipe some day.

I agree with the others comments that this is not at all authentic. I scoop out the inside of a baguette but you don't want to use a rustic baguette. The meat is cut way too thick. Traditional meats aside, I've used roast chicken leftovers, spam, canned sardines. However, what really makes it authentic is fresh, fluffy french bread, pickled carrots and daikon and pate. Seasoning is usually just a sprinkle of soy sauce, salt & pepper, and thinly sliced chili peppers if you want the extra kick.
