Very tasty 5-spice filling, omitted cooking oil and subbed lean meatloaf blend for the pork to reduce fat. Used spray oil for the fried shallots. Lifted some things from CL's 9/08 banh mi: fat-free mayo + chile paste for the spread; chile-roasted pork tenderloin for the cold cuts; and carrot-daikon to supplement the salad mix. Remember to have everything at room temp. Hollowed-out the baguettes and followed the assembly instructions. Excellent results.
