Vietnamese Sandwich

After watching the Great Food Truck Race, I was inspired to make these after watching people gobble up Nom Nom’s sandwiches every week.

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

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.

Open the French rolls and spread mayonnaise on the insides. Place one of the cooked pork chops into each roll. 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.

We had these with some Egg
Drop Soup
and some sushi I got at the store.

Did I change anything? If I was going to make this again, I would definitely cook more meat. Maybe 6 pork loin chops instead of 4. I also cut the pork chops into strips so that they would fit on the bread better. Speaking of the bread, I didn’t buy real french bread, but I did buy long hoagie-like buns. I just thought they would be too hard to eat like that, especially for the boys.

What did the family think? Hubby and I really liked them. The boys liked their sandwiches, too, but I made theirs much more plain…just meat and bread.
