Chinese BBQ Pork Banh Mi Sandwiches

Chinese Barbecued Pork Banh Mi
Thin strips of cucumber and hand-torn leaves of fresh basil are the perfect foils for smoky-sweet grilled pork in these hearty sandwiches.Zachary Zavislak

Banh mi filled with Chinese-style barbecued pork (char siu in Cantonese, or thit xa xiu in Vietnamese) is a classic. Fiery sriracha mayo is available in Vietnamese stores, but you can mix your own or use Kewpie-brand mayo instead. Instead of pickled vegetables and cilantro, this sandwich uses fresh cucumber and aromatic basil.
