Roasted Pork Banh Mi (Vietnamese Sandwich)


  • ¼ cup julienned (2-inch matchsticks) daikon radish
  • ¼ cup julienned (2-inch matchsticks) carrots
  • 1 tablespoon seasoned rice vinegar
  • ¼ cup mayonnaise
  • 1 teaspoon hoisin sauce, or to taste
  • 1 teaspoon sriracha hot sauce, or more to taste
  • 1crusty French sandwich roll
  • 4 ounces cooked pork roast, thinly sliced
  • 2 ounces smooth pate, thinly sliced
  • 6 thin spears English cucumber, diced
  • 6 thin slicesjalapeno pepper, or more to taste
  • ¼ cup cilantro leaves
  • Directions

  • Step 1

    Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil.


  • Step 2

    Toss julienned daikon and carrot with seasoned rice vinegar to coat well. Let sit until veggies get slightly limp, 15 to 20 minutes. Drain and set aside or refrigerate.

  • Step 3

    Mix the mayonnaise, hoisin sauce, and sriracha in a small bowl.

  • Step 4

    Split the French roll just enough so you can open it like a book. If you like, pull out some of the bread from the top half to better accommodate the filling.

  • Step 5

    Spread the interior surfaces of the roll liberally with the mayo mixture. Transfer roll to prepared baking sheet, cut side up. Bake in preheated oven until crisp, heated through and edges start to brown, about 7 minutes.

  • Step 6

    Place sliced pork, pate, cucumber, picked daikon and carrots, jalapeno, and cilantro leaves in the roll. Cut in half to serve.

  • Cook's Note:

    For the pickled carrots and daikon, if using regular vinegar instead of the seasoned rice vinegar, add a pinch of salt and pepper.
