I don’t know what is up with me and slaw lately. I almost feel like I’m forcing it upon you guys! So I had a craving for banh mi, as usual, like clockwork. For the unfamiliar banh mi is a sandwich that has grilled meat like beef, pork, chicken or tofu and some pickled (depending on the place) but mostly raw veggies like sliced jalapenos, cucumbers, grated carrots and some herbage like cilantro. Some places even slather on some mayo for a sweetness or even pate for the umami rounded feel. Also, a fun fact banh mi is Vietnamese for bread. So this sandwich although banh mi craving inspired is no banh mi in regards to tradition. To break it down its bread, check, grilled marinated meats, check. slaw, nope. But I love this sandwich it definitely hit the spot. Try it out and let me know what you think!
