  2. Make the seasoned pork: Heat oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium heat. Add onion and cook, stirring often, until soft, 2–3 minutes. Add pork, hoisin, 2 tsp. soy sauce, sesame oil, five-spice powder, onion and garlic powders, and pepper. Cook, stirring often, until browned, 5–6 minutes. Remove from heat and set aside.

    4 10 inch baguettes
    ½ cup mayonnaise
    Asian-style chile oil, to taste
    ½ cup cilantro sprigs
    ½ medium English cucumber, cut lengthwise into 4 thick slices
  4. Heat oven to 400°. Place baguettes on a baking sheet and spread 1 tbsp. mayonnaise inside both halves. Bake until hot and slightly crisped, about 5 minutes. Remove from oven and divide seasoned pork evenly between baguettes, top each with 1 tsp. soy sauce, ¼ of the cilantro, and 1 cucumber slice. Season with more pepper and chile oil, and top with the slaw. Close sandwiches.
