At Home Banh Mi

If your house is anything like mine, we are SO sick of cooking the same things week after week. We are also missing some of our more adventurous food destinations that are further than a down-the-road pick up. So, I attempted to bring some adventure into the kitchen instead!

I saw this recipe on Pinterest and knew I had to give it a try. It came out sooo good!

I did not have 5 spice powder so used equal parts cayenne, cinnamon, and ginger (about a 1/2 tsp each). Everything else is exactly by the recipe. I did add a little more water to my crock pot about 3/4 into cooking time as it was looking a little sparse.

I also toasted the baguette with a little bit of butter - mmmm.

Not quite Brooklyn, but it scratched the itch. :grinning_face_with_smiling_eyes:

The bread toasted makes all the difference…I am going to try this one for sure…I miss our old restaurant…the one down here is like a fast food version of it and it is just not that good!

Thanks for sharing your cooking adventures…we are also tired of the same old thing…

We’re tired of the same-old-same-old too, and have been experimenting with different breads and ethnic cuisines.
