lemongrass steak banh mi sandwiches
If you have not been graced with the glory that is a banh mi sandwich, you simply have not lived. For those unfamiliar, a banh mi is a vietnamese sandwich usually filled with some kind of meat and accompanied by pickled carrots/daikon, mayo, cucumber, jalapeño, and cilantro. It is all at once spicy, tangy, crunchy, cooling and delicious. All the flavors and textures play off each other in harmony to create truly the perfect sandwich. It is truly one of my absolute favorites and I have no idea why it took me so long to throw a recipe together for y’all, but here it is! I love a great steak sandwich but you could just as easily substitute chicken or tofu in this recipe (grill longer for chicken, of course) and both would be equally delightful. Happy cooking!
