Me Pork Bahn Mi

The Bahn Mi “Vietnamese sandwich” seems to be all the rage these days. It’s basically a sandwich with Asian flair.

You will not be disappointed in this one. The pork tenderloin is so tender it basically melts in your mouth. The pickled radishes and carrots compliment the pork marinade that has soy, garlic, fish sauce and ginger. Then Duke’s mayo, a little cheddar on a hoagie make is familiar. Really a great eat. You really need to try this one.

Ingredients:
Pork Tenderloin
Cilantro
Cheddar cheese
Duke’s mayo
Hoagie Roll

Marinade
3 tbs Fish sauce
2 tbs Soy sauce
1 tbs minced ginger
3 green onions
3 cloves of garlic minced
1 tbs of sugar
Sriracha

Pickled Carrots and Radishes
Carrots
Radishes
Jalapeno
½ cup water
1 cup of apple cider vinegar
1 tbs salt
2 tbs sugar

Directions:
1. Trim your tenderloin of any silver skin or fat. Slice into ½ and inch.   Place these medallions between saran wrap and pound them with a mallet. Put them into a Ziplock and mix up your marinade and pour over the pork. Marinate for a minimum of 30mins up to a couple of hours.

2. Julienne the carrots and radishes and slice your jalapeno. (you can remove seeds and spine if you want to lower the heat).  Soak these in the vinegar mixture for about 15- 30mins.

3. When ready to cook sear in a cast iron skillet with a little peanut oil. This cooks really quickly. (about 90 seconds on each side) The skillet should be on medium high heat so you can get as much crust as possible. FYI-the second side won’t crust up.

4. Prepare your hoagie with Duke’s mayo on both sides. Fresh Cheddar on the bottom. Top with the hot tenderloin, then carrot/radish/jalapeno mixture, Sriracha and top with Cilantro.
