Ingredients
  • Banh Mi Meatballs
  • 1 pound ground pork
  • 2 TBS chopped cilantro
  • 2 TBS scallion, sliced thin
  • 2 large cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 TBS Chili with Garlic Sauce or Siracha
  • 1 TBS fish sauce
  • 2 tsp sugar
  • 1 TBS cornstarch
  • Salt & pepper
  • Sandwich Assembly
  • 2 TBS rice or red wine vinegar
  • 1 TBS sesame oil
  • 1 TBS sugar
  • 1½ cups from a bag of shredded cole slaw mix
  • ¼ cup chopped cilantro
  • 1 jalapeno, sliced thin
  • Salt & pepper
  • ⅓ cup mayonnaise
  • 1 TBS Sriracha
  • Rolls
Instructions
  1. In a bowl, combine all meatball ingredients and mix with your hands until incorporated.
  2. Roll mixture into small meatballs (about 18) and set them aside on a tray in your refrigerator for 15 minutes or up till 3 hours, covered tightly.
  3. Mix your vinegar, sesame oil and sugar in a small mason jar or bowl.
  4. Place the cole slaw mix, cilantro & jalapeno slices in a small bowl, toss it with the dressing you made. Season with a little salt & pepper.
  5. Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
  6. In a frying pan, heat 2 TBS oil until hot and cook your meatballs until browned. You want them to get a little blackened and crispy...which is all a part of the sandwich experience.
  7. Once they are browned (being careful not to burn) place meatballs on a baking sheet in your oven for an additional 5 minutes or until cooked through.
  8. When ready to assemble sandwiches, split your rolls, slather on a good amount of the Sriracha Mayo (YUM), place a handful of your salad atop that, top with your meatballs and a little extra Sriracha Mayo if you wish and enjoy!
Notes
You can add extra jalapenos if you like things spicy and even try my Spicy Spiralized Pickled Cucumbers as a part of it, or any pickled veggie you enjoy!

You can also add extra salad greens to the sandwich.
