I love my Zac! He always comes up with the most interesting things to share on the blog. I’m so use to eating more traditional foods that I have grown up with but he will suggest new things and I realize there is so many yummy recipes that I haven’t even explored! I love this sandwich! The crispiness of the veggies, to the flavor of the different meats is a marriage made in heaven. You can make this sandwich super spicy or as mild as you would like! You get to decide.
Ingredients:
Slaw:
1/2 cup water
1/4 cup sugar
1/4 cup white vinegar
1/2 cup julienned carrots
1/2 cup julienned radishes
1 teaspoon salt
Seasoned Pork:
1 teaspoon vegetable oil
1/4 cup onion, chopped
1 lb ground pork
1 garlic clove, minced
1 teaspoon chili pepper flakes
1 teaspoon ginger
1 teaspoon sesame seeds
1 teaspoon orange juice
1 teaspoon fish sauce
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon pepper
Sandwiches:
6 baguettes
Mayonnaise
8 to 10 slices of bologna
8 to 10 slices of ham or turkey
4 teaspoons soy sauce
1 cup cilantro
1 cucumber, cut lengthwise slices
1 jalapeno, sliced
Asian-style chili oil, to taste
Directions:

  • Make the slaw: In a bowl, combine the water, sugar, vinegar, carrots, and radishes, mix well. Add salt to season. Store in the refrigerator for 30 minutes or overnight.
  • Make the pork: Heat oil in a small skillet over a medium heat. Add the onion, garlic and cook, stirring, until soft.
  • Add the pork, seasonings, orange juice and cook, stirring, until meat is cooked through. Remove from the heat and set aside covered to keep warm.
  • Make the sandwiches: Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Slice the baguette open lengthwise, and slather the inside with mayonnaise.
  • Arrange the baguettes on a baking sheet and bake until hot and crusty, about 5 minutes. Remove the baguettes from the oven and immediately fill each with the seasoned pork.
  • Layer with a slice of bologna, ham, 1 teaspoon soy sauce, 1/2 Tablespoon cilantro, 1 slice cucumber, pepper, jalapeno slices and chili oil. Top with the slaw and your ready to go!
