Beef Banh Mi Bites

Patty Ward


Here is a fun bite-size take on Banh Mi, a popular Vietnamese sandwich that's gaining popularity in the US especially southern California. The first time I heard of this sandwich was on Food Cart Wars last year. The kids who did the cart sold a ton of these sandwiches! And yes, they were from S. California.
