Beef Banh Mi

Using the Crispy Garlic Butter Oil and Daikon Carrot Pickles which I made earlier, I prepared this tasty Vietnamese inspired Beef Banh Mi or Vietnamese Styled Sandwich filled with saute beef with onion. I topped it with lettuce, cucumber, tomato, basil, scallion, coriander, green chili, and it's delicious!

Beef Banh Mi


2 Pieces (about 600 grams) of Beef Sirloin or Ribeye Steak, thinly sliced
1 Large White or Yellow Onion, peeled & sliced
2 to 3 Tbsp Light Soy Sauce
2 to 3 Tbsp Fish Sauce
2 to 3 Tbsp Sugar
Black Pepper
4 (About 6-inches) Vietnamese-Style Baguette
Crispy Garlic Butter Oil
Daikon & Carrot Pickles
Red or Green Leaf Lettuce
Asian Basil
Green Chilies, sliced


Heat a large cast-iron or non-stick pan over high heat until very hot. Add 1 Tbsp of crispy garlic butter oil to the pan, and a portion of the beef. Sauté the beef and mix a portion of onion. Season the beef with soy sauce, fish sauce, sugar, and some black pepper. When all the ingredients are sizzling fragrant and delicious,, remove from the heat and serve immediately.

Banh Mi/Sandwich: Lightly toast the baguette, sliced lengthwise, and hollow out the bread. Brush with crispy garlic butter and spread some mayonnaise. Fill one side of the baguette with lettuce, beef, daikon and carrot pickles. The fill the other side of the baguette with cucumber, tomatoes, and season with sriracha, black pepper and top with cilantro, basil, and green chilies. Sliced the sandwich into half, if desired. Serve the sandwich immediately.

I'm actually laughing at myself! What have I got into? Trying to make dumplings?? Well, I have seen my late grandmother make them a long time ago. I can remember the ingredients but not the measurements! So, it took me about two hours to come up with the perfect recipes, and I'm glad I did! It was an instant hit! They were all gone, all gobbled up! Make the dough first, add about 480 to 500g of all-purpose flour with 300ml of water. Knead the dough and let it rest. You should be able to make 40 dumplings with the dough. Meanwhile, prepare the filling for the dumplings. Click here for the dumpling wrappers video.
