Pork “Banh Mi” by Amber

Pork “Banh Mi” (inspired by it anyway!)

300 grams of sliced pork (labeled tagliata, pork loin or filet)
2 tablespoons Fish sauce
2 tablespoons Maple Syrup
1 tablespoon brown sugar
2 tablespoons soy sauce
1/2 teaspoon sesame oil
2 garlic cloves, minced
1 slice ginger, minced
1 green onion, sliced thinly

To assemble sandwich:
Slices of your favorite bread (baguette or sourdough work perfect)
Quick Pickled slaw
Sliced Cucumbers
Cilantro (optional)

Combine all in marinade ingredients, add pork and let marinate. The longer the better. (I did overnight.)

For pickled slaw
Thinly slice cabbage, carrots, red pepper and green onion. Let sit in sweetened rice vinegar or vinegar with a spoon or two of sugar.

When you are ready to eat, cook slices of pork over very high heat in a bit of vegetable oil until done. Assemble sandwich. Eat and enjoy or wrap in kitchen paper and take to the park!
