Sunny overcast Florida! Florida has been gorgeous and a well needed trip. Thanks to our in laws trading in their time share, we were able to get a condo, for the 8 of us and relax on the week for the week. We’re only into day 4 of the trip and my kids have experienced the beach for the first time, swam in the Atlantic ocean and went gator huntin’. I rode on an air boat so I can check that off my bucket list. So fun. I also cracked open a lobster all by my lonesome for the first time and dove in head first. YUM!
I love vacation. Especially a beach vacation. I’m a sunshine, beach, pool kind of person. Therefore, a warm vacation, away from the Midwest, is always welcomed. It’s also great to have the whole family together on a trip. Ask me if we can still tolerate each other by the last day of the trip though ?
The boys are currently on a fishing expo so I’m doing work that I swore I would do before I left. You see, I procrastinate. I had “planned” to have at least 6 posts scheduled before we left, so I could be work free for the week. If you know me, you know that is NOT possible. I can’t ever stop doing anything. I am not the first friend you call when you want to go and see the new movie out. I cannot sit still. I do not enjoy reading books, unless it’s a food magazine, as I envision myself doing a million other things than sitting on my butt and indulging in a story. It’s just not for me.
So, during this overcast day, I am working on the blog because I love bringing you new content and because I suck at being ahead of schedule. Oh well. The sun is parked behind the clouds, my daughter is quietly playing with her new toys and the rest of the family is out on the ocean. All while I’m home with said 4 year old daughter. We were told she wouldn’t do well on the boat. I’d beg to differ but oh well, we went shopping!
Therefore, I bring you Banh Mi Sandwiches. I’d also like to let you know I am most likely the last person on the face of the Earth to eat a Banh Mi and what took me so long, I dunno. This sandwich is all sorts of amazing! To me, it tasted like a spring roll but on bread and who doesn’t love a spring roll?!
These Banh Mi Sandwiches could not be simpler. I know by looking at them, you would think there is a lot of ingredients but there isn’t. House of Tsang® packed SO much flavor into their sauces so all you need to do is add some meat and/or fresh veggies, some bread and you’re good to go.
I started by marinating a pork tenderloin in House of Tsang’® Szechuan SpicyTM Sauce. I let that marinate in the refrigerator for 24 hours. I then cooked the pork tenderloin, in the oven for 1 hour until a thermometer inserted into the center registered 145.°
While the pork tenderloin was out of the oven and resting, I very thinly sliced some cucumber, carrots and radishes and threw them into a bowl. I also chopped up some mint and placed it into the bowl with the veggies. Also with some peanuts for crunch.
In a small bowl, I whisked together the juice of 1 lime and 1/4 cup of House of Tsang® Bangkok Peanut SauceTM. I poured that into the veggie bowl and mixed to combine. I took a french baguette and sliced it into 4 pieces and placed it under the broiler for a minute to toast up. I then scooped out some of the bottom part of the bun. It saves carbs and leaves more room for filing!
When the pork tenderloin was finished resting for 10 minutes, I thinly sliced it and placed 3-4 pieces onto the baguette. I then topped the pork with the peanut veggie coleslaw, garnished with a few cilantro leaves, extra peanuts for more crunch and placed the top bun on. Inserted a toothpick in the center so it all stayed together and went to town on my first ever Banh Mi Sandwich.
I’ve seen countless recipes, magazine articles and pictures of a banh mi but have never had the pleasure of eating one…until now and OMG is that good! It’s everything I want in a sandwich and more. I love a sandwich that is packed with vegetables, lean meat and who doesn’t love a peanut sauce? House of Tsang® knocked it out of the park with theirs. It’s slightly spicy, which is a great complement to the rest of the sandwich and the lime juice gives it that little bit of sour citrus note.
