Long time no see – Today I have something special from my travels. – Vietnamese Sandwich Banh Mi.
Alright, guys, raise your hand if you’ve never had a banh mi?! Oh how sorry I feel for you all, but no worries — if this happens to be you well then I have your new favorite recipe right here! Vietnamese banh mi sandwiches are my FAVORITE sandwich in the entire world.
One of my coworkers introduced me to this sandwich and she taught me how to make them. Unlike a traditional banh mi, this sandwich has a delicious tangy sauce instead of the typical mayo. I think the sauce is what makes this sandwich out of this world so even if you’ve had many a banh mi in your day, I insist that you give my version a try! This sauce is the boss – trust me.
Banh mi is traditionally a pork sandwich and this recipe is also excellent if you used sliced pork tenderloin (just saying…)
Savory, sweet, salty, fresh, crunchy – this recipe has it all. You won’t believe how well the flavors go together until you try it yourself. The ingredients are easy to prepare ahead of time so I love making this for dinner guests too!
Please note that I didn’t include PointsPlus for bread because we’ll all use something different. The points for this recipe includes the sandwich filling and sauce only. I can easily find a bread for 4-5 pts+ making the entire sandwich just around 9-10 pts+.
