Never having a true Bahn Mi I cannot rate this on authenticity however knowing good food I will say this is absolutely delicious. I personally used pork loin and standard radishes as it is what I had on hand. I made this for dinner which received rave reviews and was gladly consumed the following night for dinner once again. My family has requested that I ensure there are leftovers whenever these are made.
This was delish!
This was DELISH!!! I loved it! I didn't have a daikon radish on hand (I threw this together out of our overflowing fridge that needed to be cleaned out) but Chowhound suggested substituting a turnip. That was pretty bitter and I wouldn't recommend it. Not ever having had a proper Bahn Mi, I'm sure I wouldn't miss it at all. I wish it would have been just a little spicier. I think next time I'll add just a few pepper flakes to the mayo. Easy, relatively quick and yummy. 5 stars in my book!
This is a very good sandwich,I used seasoned rice wine vinegar in place of cider vinegar,made an unbelivable differance.Also used thinly sliced lemon cucumbers instead of regular cukes.
So good... They taste like the real deal!
Whe have made this many times and is now a staple when we roast a pork lion we save some for sanwiches the next day. We also have made this with chicken breast and love it as well. Really good to make the day ahead and wrap tightly in foil on a bagette. Great picnic fair.
Baked the pork & made the mayo spread the day prior. Used long baguettes from Whole Foods -- no French bakeries in our town. Made 1st serving to directions and they were pretty good. For 2nd serving, pulled some of the soft interior from the baguette and popped into 400° oven to crisp a bit, then made sandwiches. Results were excellent.
Yum! I love the fresh taste of this sandwich. We will make this again and again.
A friend made this for me and it was so yummy! I've since made this for others and added it to my recipe box. It is different and has a nice kick to it. Great for soup and sandwich night. Enjoy!
OMG. Bhan mi....more like eat mi. Followed recipe exactly, added sprouts for more crunch.
My husband favorite meal is a soup & a sandwich. This was a great addition to my recipe book. He loved it & so did my kids.
