Love Your Leftovers: Pulled Pork Banh Mi
This recipe was very slightly adapted from Love Your Leftovers - partially due to personal preference (I don't eat mayo) and partially due to the variety of ingredients available at my local supermarket.
- 1 baguette 14-16 inches long
- 1 teaspoon olive oil
- 1 garlic clove minced
- 1 ½ cups leftover pulled pork
- 1 tablespoon fish sauce
- ¼ cup water
- 1 pinch black pepper
- ⅓ cup low fat plain Greek yogurt
- 1 tablespoon Sriracha chili sauce
- ½ cucumber thinly sliced
- 1 carrot grated
- 2 radishes thinly sliced
- 1 jalapeno thinly sliced
Heat the oven to 400ºF.
Cut the baguette in half, then split it down the center. Place cut-side up on a baking sheet. Toast in the oven for 5 minutes, or until slightly crispy.
In a medium saucepan, heat the olive oil. Add the garlic and cook 1-2 minutes, or until soft. Add the pulled pork, fish sauce, water, and pepper. Bring to a simmer; cook until the liquid is absorbed, 4-5 minutes.
In a small bowl, mix the yogurt and Sriracha. Spread both sides of the bread with yogurt sauce. Top the bottom slice with pork and vegetables; top with a second piece of bread.
