Vietnamese bánh mì sandwiches are a great way to use a lot of garden-fresh veggies. They have an endless variety of options for fillings. An Asian-French fusion, they often use liver pate as a base, or other boldly cooked meat such as black pepper pork (below). You can also try marinated turkey/chicken, shrimp, or firm tofu or seitan. Then top it off with a sweet and tangy carrot-daikon pickle.
Mix all marinade ingredients and add slices of pork. Allow everything to marinade for at least 1 hour in the refrigerator.
Heat up frying pan with a little extra oil. Lay slices of pork in one layer at a time. When one side is cooked, flip to other side to finish cooking.
Cut 5-inch slices of baguette and assemble sandwiches with pork, veggie fillings, any dressing, and carrot-daikon pickle.
