My love for bánh mì and a marinade from Cooking Light, seen on Elizabeth's blog.
1 1/2teaspoons minced peeled fresh ginger
1 1/2teaspoons fish sauce
1/2teaspoon chili garlic sauce
1/4teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
2garlic cloves, minced
1pound flank steak, trimmed
- sliced fresh jalapeños, shredded carrots, and cilantro
- To prepare steak, combine first 6 ingredients in a large flat dish. Add steak; cover and marinate in refrigerator 20 minutes, turning occasionally.
Prepare grill or broiler.
- Remove steak from refrigerator; discard marinade. Place steak on grill rack or broiler pan lightly coated with oil; cook until desired doneness.
- Slice steak against the grain; pile on baguette with veggies. Top with fish sauce or a combination of fish sauce, fresh ginger, garlic, rice vinegar, lime juice, and sugar.
Notes: These were delicious, but I probably won't make them again. Why? Because we are lucky enough to be able to purchase bánh mì from many nearby Vietnamese-owned restaurants for about $2.50 each. If I didn't have that option, I would be making this often.
