I made The Blog Tech his favorite sandwich for lunch last week. It is a Vietnamese bahn mi.
These sandwiches can have a variety of fillings but they almost always have pate', pickled vegetables and cilantro in them. I spread the buns (use ciabatta or baguette) with wasabi mayonnaise. You can use plain mayonnaise too. Then I added thin slices of pate and some truffled ham slices. It's also traditional to add chicken so I added pieces of marinated chicken too. Layer some sliced, salted cucumber on top.
I added a bit of this tamarind sauce which adds an extra flavor that is very good.
I made Asian pickled carrots in advance and added them which is one of the main flavors of this sandwich. I also added some fresh arugula from my garden. Add some sliced onions or green onions if you have them.
Add lots of fresh cilantro. You have to add cilantro!
I wrap them tightly in plastic wrap to compress them. You can see the slice of truffle on the ham in the upper left. This is a new item I found at my favorite Italian store and it became an instant favorite.
