Bánh Mi Inspiration

I began exploring the wonderfulness of Vietnatmese-style sandwiches a few years ago, but ever since discovering the deliciousness of Bánh Mi Saigon Bakery, I'm completely obsessed. If I could eat one every day, life would be a beautiful thing. So, when I had a final bit of a baguette (from Balthazar--huzzah!) that needed to be used...I went down the Vietnamese sandwich road searching for lunchtime ideas.

I remembered there were a few slices of garlic-infused pork loin in the freezer, so I dug them out and reheated them in a skillet. After refreshing the baguette in the oven, I added the pork slices and a good slathering of chili garlic sauce. Alas, my crisper was free of suitable vegetable additions (some sort of crunchy lettuce, cucumber, cilantro, or the like would have added soooo much), but regardless, I had a very happy lunch. Easy peasy spicy goodness!
