Bánh Mì with Lemongrass Pork

 

Bánh Mì is Vietnamese for baguette. Almost all Vietnamese sandwiches are served on bánh mì with mayonnaise and other toppings, thanks to the French influence during the Indochine period. This was my first attempt at making a Vietnamese sandwich. I marinated the pork overnight with lemongrass, shallots, garlic, and many other spices and served it with pickled carrots and daikon (radish), cucumber, cilantro, chili peppers, and mayonnaise. Yum! I found this recipe on Rasa Malaysia, where I find most of my Asian recipes.
