Happy Friday, friends! I would like to take this moment to introduce you all to one of my new favorite things- Banh Mi! :) Not familiar? No worries. You certainly will be by the end of today's recipe post. I hadn't actually tried Bahn Mi myself until last month when I attended the Pass the Pork tour in Minneapolis & found myself in charge of mixing up the Bahn Mi Pork Burgers recipe that my team was assigned to during our group cooking class. I had definitely heard of Banh Mi before, but I had not actually tried it until we had cooked up those flavorful and juicy burgers. And guess what, folks? I am now 100% hooked!
For those not familiar with Banh Mi, let's start with just what it is exactly. Banh Mi actually refers to the Vietnamese baquette or roll that these tasty sandwiches are usually served on. These crusty on the outside, soft on the inside rolls are stuffed with flavorful meat and are then usually topped with some kind of pickled veggies. Some people also add a little mayonnaise, chili paste, fresh cilantro, or thinly cut slices of jalapeno to their Banh Mi. For this Slow Cooker Banh Mi Pork Sandwich recipe I am sharing with you all today, I simply topped them with a quick pickled slaw and a sriracha mayo. But feel free to throw on some fresh cilantro springs or a few jalapeno slices as well if that happens to be your thing... ;)
