In Vietnamese, banh mi implies bread, so the translation would be sausage sandwich. What makes this distinct is what is added to the sandwich, such as the pickled carrot and radish. I truly like the addition of the marinaded carrot and radish. Cha Lua is a completely prepared sausage that is refrigerated when you purchase them, so they can be eaten as is right from the fridge.
Vietnamese Sandwich (Banh Mi Cha Lua)
- Vietnamese sausage
- Cucumber sliced
- Pickled carrot and radish
- Spring onions sliced
- Fresh coriander leaves sliced
- cheese sliced
- Chilis sliced lengthwise
- Soy sauce
- Salt and pepper
- I pan-fried the sausage, this is optional, in a splash of olive oil and seasoned just with lemon pepper.
- They are cooked a little to brown them up a bit. These are completely prepared when you purchase them.
- I utilized the faster way to make the pickled carrot and radish.
- Divide the baguette or roll, spread mayo on both pieces, layer on some Vietnamese sausage, then the cucumber, marinaded carrot and radish, coriander leaves, spring onions and top with the other half of the bread.
