Who else loves to fill their home with family and friends to watch and cheer their favorite teams on to victory?  Whether it be football, basketball or whatever sport, bringing together all those you care about to enjoy their company along with great eats is always a memorable time!  Game day is near and I thought I’d share a great new recipe from the Pork Board that everyone will think took you all day to prepare but is actually super easy and so tasty.  It’s a Bahn Mi Sandwich topped with an Asian Slaw that is delicious used as a “salsa” as well with Tostitos Scoops.  I’m so happy I tried this recipe and I think my guests were too since every last bit of it was eaten! 

Bahn Mi Sandwiches with Asian Slaw Recipe


The day before everyone is set to arrive, I headed down to Albertsons, one of my favorite and most convenient shopping stops to grab all I needed for game day.  I can always count on fresh bakery, produce and meat whenever I need it at great prices.  I love that I can stop on my way home from work and always get what I need! (plus a few extras like Skittles and Pepsi, lol!)

NOTE: This particular recipe calls to marinate your pork tenderloin for 2-4 hours so you will need to plan ahead and prepare it in the morning or the night before to be ready for cooking.

Easy Sandwiches for Game Day with Asian Flair!


  • 1 1/2 pound pork tenderloin, trimmed
  • 1 24-inch baguette (soft)
  • 1/3 cup mayonnaise
  • 1 small cucumber, peeled, halved lengthwise, seeded and thinly sliced
  • 32 fresh cilantro sprigs


  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 4 cloves garlic, smashed
  • 4 tsp chili sauce
  • 6 TBSP fresh lime juice (from 3-4 limes)
  • 4 tsp Asian fish sauce

Vegetable Mixture

  • 2 TBSP seasoned rice vinegar
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1 1/2 cups shredded carrots
  • 1 1/2 cups shredded daikon radish
  • 1/2 cup red onion, thinly sliced


  1. To make marinade, combine sugar, garlic and chili sauce, mashing into a paste. Add lime juice and fish sauce. Set 1/4 cup of mixture aside and refrigerate. Transfer remaining mixture into re-sealable bag, add pork and set aside for 2-4 hours.
  2. Preheat oven to 450 degrees and make vegetable mixture (about 30 minutes before serving). in a large bowl, combine vinegar and salt. Add carrots, radish and onion. Set aside, stirring occasionally, for 30 minutes.
  3. Place pork on lined baking pan (discard marinade from bag with pork). Roast 20-25 minutes (to internal temperature of 145-160 degrees). Remove pork from oven and let rest 5 minutes.
  4. To assemble sandwiches, thinly slice pork. Trim ends off baguettes and cut each crosswise into 4 pieces. Cut horizontally, so each piece opens like a book. Spread with mayonnaise, top with cucumber, pork slices and reserved marinade (drizzle it over pork), vegetable mixture and cilantro and serve.


  • I added my cilantro directly to my vegetable mixture and served leftover veggies as a salsa with Tostitos Scoops.

This recipe is actually great with the pork served warm or cold. We have tried it now both ways so if you choose to make it all ahead of time on game day, you will still serve up some seriously good eats!
