I recently received a link to this recipe in e-mail:
Having never had banh mi, and recognizing this is not the real deal, I'm wondering if these burgers might be better made with ground pork than ground beef--or maybe a combo of the two. Or ground chicken, even. Those of you wiser to the ways of banh mi (or this recipe), please weigh in. And what do you think of the curry powder inclusion?
Based on what I've learned so far, I should add cucumbers, too. I'd also replace the Tabasco with sriracha. I think these would be fun as little mini-burgers over a salad for something different--maybe with crushed peanuts over the top as served in my local Vietnamese joint. I can skip the baguette altogether and feel better about eating a sexy salad. Hmmmmm. Thoughts?
