So now that you've got my recipe for Char Siu/Xa Xiu (Chinese/Vietnamese Barbecued Pork), it's simple enough to put together a recipe for banh mi xa xiu (Vietnamese barbecued pork sandwich). Again, this is more an assembly list of instructions than a recipe.
Banh Mi Xa Xiu (Vietnamese Barbecued Pork Sandwich)
French bread or Ciabatta-ish No-Knead Bread
Char Siu/Xa Xiu (Chinese/Vietnamese Barbecued Pork)
Do Chua (Vietnamese Pickled Carrots and Daikon)
Pate (Faux Gras with Chicken Livers)
A few dashes of Maggi Seasoning Sauce or soy sauce
A schmear of mayonnaise or butter if you wish
Assemble all the ingredients, except pickles, cucumbers, and cilantro.
Put in the toaster oven for about 5 minutes.
Add in greens and pickles. So yummy that this works even on ciabatta-ish no-knead bread and grated carrots with a light rice vinegar vinaigrette.
Remember when I said I had a banh mi series of posts? This is just the second recipe to whet your appetite. :)
