banh miA pork sandwich with homemade vegetable pickles in the style of the vietnamese banh mi

Hello dear cosmonauts! Following the popularity of our last recipe with Asian inspirations I thought I’d continue in this spirit by proposing a revisited Banh Mi. Banh Mi is a Vietnamese sandwich, consisting of a crusty baguette, spread with liver pate and a little bit of mayonnaise, and filled with meat, fresh seweet and sour vegetables, coriander and chilli sauce. I adapted my banh mi sandwich’s ingredents to my CSA box of the week . This pork sandwich is a very nice recipe for sunny days, and it is perfect for a picnic.
