Warning: This is seriously easy and seriously addictive… lol.
This is my cheat version of a Banh Mi, with readily available products that you can get from any supermarket. I substituted a Vietnamese baguette with a Turkish roll because.. well, Turkish rolls are deliciously fluffy on the inside and crusty on the outside which makes this roll the best thing in the world! Ok, maybe I am overreacting but my mouth is watering even as I type this.. so that’s a good thing right?!
Whether you’re craving a nice big delicious lunch that will surely make you feel sleepy after lunch and unable to continue being productive, or you just felt like banh mi for dinner but all the Vietnamese shops are closed… this is for you! Kimba’s cheat but yummy banh mi replacement recipe hehe.
300g pork belly or pork spare ribs (the sliced ones as shown in this pic below)
1 carrot, julienned
1 cup of fresh coriander
Turkish bread rolls
Sweet Chilli Sauce
Salt and Pepper
Slice the pork into little strips, season well with salt and pepper and roast it in the oven for approximately 30 minutes until it is brown and crispy.
To assemble the roll, slice the bread roll to form a pocket without slicing all the way through. Spread mayonnaise on one side of the roll. Stuff in carrots, coriander and pork according to your preference. Drizzle some sweet chilli sauce and take a huge first bite in contentment! Then keep eating and hope you don’t crave for more than you should eat.. because I know I tend to have that problem! Haha 🙂
