Lemongrass Beef Banh Mi

 Don’t you just love the colours this picture?! A feast for the tummy and for the eyes! Banh mi is such a satisfying meal on it’s own, with a good balance of vegetables, protein, and carbo. I love the play of taste and texture on a good banh mi. The fresh crisp bite of cucumber, and cilantro, with the slightly sweet pickled carrot and radish, the lovely tender and well-seasoned beef cooked to your preference, and the slight kick from the red chilli all nicely enveloped in a crusty French loaf. Salivating yet?

Quite honestly, it’s a meal that require very simple ingredients and doesn’t take much effort to make. I added some fried shallot for extra crunch and to build another layer of flavour. Do remember to buy or make some good French loaf, as it does make a difference!
