Even our local Safeway carries daikon radishes now, plus I can get them at our farmer’s market too. I wanted to make a home version of banh mi sandwich last night so went online to find a recipe. Ended up at the Viet World Kitchen and used the recipe here for Do Chua. Aren’t they pretty? And tasty too!
For the sandwiches, I barbecued a steak that had marinated in a bit of balsamic vinegar, brown sugar, Worcestershire sauce and olive oil and sliced it thinly.
I sliced up a jalapeno and marinated it in a bit of rice vinegar, fish sauce, soy sauce and sugar a la the recipe here at Cooking Light for banh mi style sandwiches and then added the steak slices to that for a bit as well.
I had chopped fresh cilantro and cucumber (from the garden) as well.
Toasted a French roll for a just a bit then layered with the beef, jalapeno, cilantro, cucumber slices and then the carrot and daikon pickles. I thought it was really good. Youngest was not so excited about it. oh well.
