I’m still recovering from all the cooking and eating at Thanksgiving. Last night I was so tired of leftovers and still didn’t feel like cooking that I ordered some Thai take out and it was definitely the right choice. Tonight, however, I had to start cooking again because I have a fridge full of CSA veggies. I made another cabbage soup, which I’ll tell you about at a later date, and banh mi inspired sandwiches to bring to work for lunch. I was missing carrots and I substituted parsley for cilantro but the goal of making this was to use some daikon. The pork part of this recipe is delicious on it’s own.
Makes 2 sandwiches
1 clove garlic minced
2 tablespoons soy sauce
2 tablespoons vinegar (preferably rice vinegar) plus more for daikon
1/2 teaspoon sesame oil
1 tablespoon brown sugar
2 pork chops sliced into thin pieces
1 carrots grated ( I didn’t use any)
1 piece of daikon, about 2 inches long grated
3 scallions sliced
Cilantro roughly chopped (I used Parsley)
Combine first 5 ingredients, add pork, marinate for at least 20 minutes. Grate daikon into a bowl and cover with vinegar which will pickle it. Prepare other vegetables.
Cook pork over medium high heat until done. Combine 1-2 tablespoons of mayo and 1 teaspoon sriracha (to taste) in a bowl to create a spicy mayo.
Cut ½ baguette into 2 equal pieces, slice them in half and spread spicy mayo on both halves. Top with pork, daikon, carrots and scallions.
