Vietnamese Inspired Sandwich

INGREDIENTS

  • 4 boneless pork loin chops, cut 1/4 inch thick
  • 4 (7 inch) French bread baguettes, split lengthwise
  • 4 teaspoons mayonnaise, or to taste
  • 1 ounce chile sauce with garlic
  • 1/4 cup fresh lime juice
  • 1 small red onion, sliced into rings
  • 1 medium cucumber, peeled and sliced lengthwise
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro
  • salt and pepper to taste

DIRECTIONS

  1. Preheat the oven’s broiler. Place the pork chops on a broiling pan and set under the broiler. Cook for about 5 minutes, turning once, or until browned on each side. Or you can prepare the chops on the grill, to avoid heating up the kitchen with the broiler.
  2. Open the French rolls and spread mayonnaise on the insides. Place one of the cooked pork chops into each roll.( I find it easier to eat if you thinly julienne the cooked chops) Spread chile sauce directly on the meat. Sprinkle with a little lime juice and top with slices of onion, cucumber, cilantro, salt and pepper. Finish with another quick drizzle of lime juice.
  3. For a more authentic taste add pickled julienned carrots, if desired.
