Carey's "best Baguette" Vietnamese Sandwiches

Ready in 1 hour

These are excellent and rival anything you would get at a Vietnamese sandwich shop. If you use sourdough for the baguette, it gives it a nice tangy flavor. You can always use meat leftover from another meal, especially one that contained Asian flavors. Pork is ideally best, also thin sliced ham. * important that you lightly toast the bread it gives it a nice crunch..

"Putting all 22 ingredients together for the pickled vegetables, the marinade, etc. was time consuming but eventually tasted good. MAN I was starving by the time it was ready! I would make again but prepare the pickling far in advance. TY for sharing!"
