Pork Meatball Banh Mi

Ingredients

  • Pork Meatball:

  • 1 lb ground pork

  • Salt, to taste

  • Pepper, to taste

  • 3 Tbsp garlic, minced

  • 2 green onions, sliced

  • 6 basil leaves, chopped thin

  • 2 Tbsp fish sauce

  • ½ Tbsp sugar

  • 1 Tbsp white sesame seeds

  • 1 Tbsp (or more to taste) hot chili sauce, such as Sriracha

  • ½ Tbsp cornstarch, or more if needed to bind

  • 1 Tbsp molasses

  • Pickled vegetable topping:

  • 1 ½ cups green cabbage, chopped

  • ⅔ cup grated carrots

  • ½ cup grated daikon

  • ½ cup leafed Brussels sprouts

  • 1 large shiitake mushroom, thinly sliced

  • ½ Tbsp sugar

  • Salt, to taste

  • Pepper, to taste

  • 2 Tbsp rice vinegar

  • Spam pâté:

  • 1 can of low-sodium Spam

  • 4 heaping Tbsp garlic aioli

  • 2 Tbsp garlic chili sauce, like Sambal

  • 1 green onion, chopped

  • For assembly:

  • French baguette

  • Sriracha

Instructions

  1. Combine all ingredients for the meatballs in a large bowl. Work with your hands to make sure everything is well incorporated. Set aside to marinate while you prepare the rest of your banh mi filling.

  2. Combine everything for the pickled vegetable topping in a bowl and give it a toss. Set aside to break down and pickle.

  3. Combine all Spam pâté ingredients in a food processor and blend until smooth.

  4. Preheat oven to 350°F. Heat a large cast-iron skillet over medium-high heat with oil. Begin forming golf-ball-sized meatballs and add to the pan, browning on all sides. Once browned all over, pop pan into the oven for 15 minutes to finish cooking.

  5. To assemble, cut French baguette down the center. Spread a healthy portion of pâté and squirt with Sriracha. Fill with meatballs and top with pickled vegetables. Enjoy!
