More Banh Mi--Lemongrass Marinated Pork


  • 1/4 cup fish sauce
  • 1 TB soy sauce
  • 3 TB sugar
  • 2 TB vegetable oil
  • 2 stalks lemongrass, trimmed, small dice
  • 2 large green onions, white and pale green parts, small dice
  • 2 cloves garlic, small dice
  • 1 LB pork loin, thinly sliced

  • Whisk together fish sauce, soy sauce, sugar and vegetable oil.
  • Add lemongrass, green onions, and garlic.
  • Add pork and allow to marinate for an hour.
  • Cook under a broiler for 5 minutes on each side, basting with marinade.
  • Serve as filling for banh mi, or over rice or noodles, or over lettuce and herbs.


I picked up rice flour and have switched to using this recipe for baguettes for banh mi. I do not spray with water, as we prefer our bread to be softer for sandwiches. These turned out perfect!


  1. I looked at that bread roll recipe and saved it. You know me I'm always mixing my bread grains and looking for new ones.

  2. I'm insane about bread, too! Right now I have baguettes, a tomato spice bread, and tons of bagels up in the freezer!

  3. Hi! I'm glad the recipe for the baguettes worked out well and this lemongrass pork looks AMAZING - I must try it sometime!! :)
