Spicy Beef Banh Mi

Spicy Beef Banh Mi

Posted 2018-03-14 by Maddy Butlerfollow
Back in Sydney, my family and I used to love tucking into a spicy beef banh mi, but we haven't been able to find a good one in our new town. So I decided to make our own. This is delicious; packed with spicy meat, vegetables and yummy sauce it makes a scrumptious and filling meal.

We made a young kid version which is the same but with cooked mince, no seasoning sauce, and no chilli whatsoever!

Preparation Time: 15 minutes
Cooking Time: 55 minutes
Serves: 4

4 soft rolls or 1 large baguette, cut into quarters
1/2 cup mayonnaise
1 carrot
1 cucumber
1 red chilli, deseeded
1/2 bunch coriander
4 iceberg lettuce leaves
1/2 cup pickled daikon radish

Spicy Beef Rissoles
500g beef mince
2 garlic cloves
1/2 red onion
1/4 bunch coriander
1 egg
Zest of 1 lemon
1 tbsp fish sauce
1 tbsp soy or tamari sauce
1 red chilli, deseeded

Seasoning Sauce
2 tbsp tamari
1 tbsp fish sauce
1 tsp sesame oil
Juice of 1 lemon

  • Preheat oven to 190°C (375°F).
  • Blitz the garlic, onion, coriander, lemon juice, soy/tamari and fish sauce in a blender. Place in a large bowl with the mince and egg. Mix very well.

  • On a baking tray, fashion the meat into large rissoles that are just a bit smaller than your rolls. Place in the oven for 50 minutes.
  • Meanwhile, prepare the filling ingredients. Using a mandoline, or a sharp knife, cut the carrot into thick matchsticks, and the cucumber into fine slices. Finely chop the chilli, shred the lettuce, and cut off the roots of the coriander.
  • Make the seasoning sauce by mixing the ingredients in a small bowl. Taste and adjust to your liking.

  • I laid out all the ingredients for filling the rolls.

  • Once the rissoles are cooked through, remove them from the oven.

  • Leave the oven on, and place the rolls in for 5 minutes, or until warmed through.
  • Slather on some mayonnaise onto a roll. Place a rissole on top. Add carrots, daikon radish, cucumber, lettuce and coriander.

  • Top with chilli, and spoon some seasoning sauce onto the other side of the roll.

  • Close the roll (you will probably need to push down on the roll as it will be very full!)
  • Repeat with the remaining rolls. Serve.
