These banh mi sandwiches are smeared with a spicy, creamy sauce (thanks to Sriracha and mayo). It's the only dressing you'll need for the layers of pork, fresh veggies, and crusty bread.



Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • In a small bowl combine mayonnaise and 3 tsp. of the sriracha sauce.

  • In another small bowl combine remaining 2 tsp. sriracha sauce and soy sauce. Brush meat with soy mixture. In a greased grill pan or 12-inch skillet cook meat over medium-high heat 4 to 6 minutes or until slightly pink in center, turning once; cool.

  • In a medium bowl combine cucumber, sweet pepper, carrot, and green onions.

  • Cut bread in half horizontally. Spread cut sides of bread with mayonnaise mixture. Layer bottom half of bread with meat. Top with vegetable mixture, cilantro, and, if desired, cabbage. Replace top of bread; press lightly.

  • Tightly wrap sandwich in foil or plastic wrap to tote. Chill up to 24 hours. To serve, cut into portions and, if needed, insert toothpicks to hold together.
