Trying new and exotic spice blends is so much fun! I've never tried making a Bahn Mi Sandwich before. This sandwich is "street food" in Vietnam. I have seen them on menus at restaurants and in many cooking magazines. They looked great, but seemed very exotic to make—too many spices I would never use again. When Milford Spice Company introduced the Easy Bahn Mi blend—I jumped in.
The Easy Bahn Mi is salt-free and hand blended from demerara sugar, ginger, coriander, clove, cinnamon, red pepper flakes, sesame, black pepper and lemongrass. Great as a dry rub or marinade.
The final result was a sandwich with a complex layers of flavors—fresh, flavorful and delicious. This is easily a new family favorite. I marinated the chicken and made some quick pickled veggies.
We enjoyed an ice-cold beer with this sandwich.
