Recipe

Bánh Mì are delicious sweet and spicy Vietnamese sandwiches packed with flavor. They typically come packed in a French baguette with savory pork, pickled veggies, and a creamy mayonnaise based spicy spread. They are one of my favorite sandwiches ever. So when a craving hit this week, I set out to recreate a bánh mì style meal at home using the slow cooker. The meat is cooked with jalapeno, ginger, garlic, soy sauce, rice vinegar, and sugar to give it tons of flavor. This gives it a deep, rich, and seriously delicious flavor. From there, you can serve it up however you like. I went for a bánh mì style taco with some quick home pickled carrots and jalapenos and a squirt of Sriracha. So so good.

    Great! Well developed savory flavor. Made them as lettuce wraps and loved the combo of savory pork with the light lettuce crunch.
