Pork Meatball Banh Mi Recipe

This was surprisingly good. My man even liked it and said he would eat this again. That is a score for my addition to new recipes. Since I am starting to write a lot more recipes, I have thoughts of accidentally re- writing the same recipe twice on the blog. So if I do. No sweat, it just me getting old and reminiscing a great food I like.

Ingredients:

HOT CHILI MAYO                                            Serves about 4
2/3 C. mayo
2 green onion chopped
4 T. sweet Thai chili sauce (I get mine from Walmart Asian food section)
2-4 T. diced jalapeno
about 1/4 C. chopped cilantro

MEATBALLS
1 lb. ground pork
1/4 C. chopped basil
4 garlic cloves, minced
3 green onions chopped
1 T. fish sauce
2 T. sweet Thai chili sauce (Asian food section in grocery store)
1 T. sugar
2 tsp. cornstarch
1 tsp. salt

SALAD FILLER
4 C. grated carrots
1/4 C. vinegar (rice or apple cider)
1/4 C. of sugar
1 tsp. salt
1 T. toasted sesame oil

Pita breads, baguettes, french bread or other bread will do.


You can make this up to a day ahead and keep in the fridge until ready to cook and make. Mix the hot chili mayo recipe in a small bowl and set aside. Mix the Meatball recipe in another large bowl and roll into small to medium meatballs. You can place these on a plate, cover and place in the fridge until ready to cook. Mix the salad filler in a medium bowl and set aside.

When ready to make. Heat a skillet to medium heat and cooking the meatballs. Then set them on a clean plate with paper towels. Take out your bread and warm if you like. Spread the hot chili mayo on eat side of inner bread. Add some meat balls and top with carrot salad filler. Serve and eat.
