Pulled Pork Banh Mi Sandwiches

Just because grilling season is over doesn’t mean we have to make the same boring meat recipes. This Pulled Pork Banh Mi Sandwich shakes things up a bit with the rich flavors from the meat and all spices. Full of protein and flavor, this sandwich has it all.

The meat is the star of this sandwich. To start, you season the pork with salt and pepper. Then in an instant pot you add the pork, onion, jalapeno pepper, Marukan Organic Seasoned Gourmet Rice Vinegar, tamari, fish sauce, garlic, and ginger and cook for an hour. Remove the pork from the instant pot after it naturally releases for 20 minutes and shred. Then place the shredded pork on a skillet until it browns. While the pork cooks, in a mason jar place the cabbage, carrots, and daikon radish with the Marukan Organic Seasoned Gourmet Rice Vinegar and let sit and shake occasionally. Once the pork is done you assemble your sandwich however you like.
