Teriyaki Pork Bahn Mi Sandwich combines teriyaki sauce with a popular Vietnamese sandwich for a memorable lunch or game day snack!
I’m excited that today’s post is sponsored by my friends over at Smithfield. Smithfield is proud to be the leader in marinated fresh pork. They continuously strive to provide customers with new and delicious mouthwatering flavors, all using 100% fresh pork. An added bonus is they use no artificial ingredients.
If you need a hassle-free lunch or dinner that’s ready in about 30 minutes or less, Smithfield Marinated Fresh Pork is your go-to choice for a delicious dinner the entire family will enjoy. Slow-marinated and perfectly seasoned, Smithfield Marinated Fresh Pork is available in an assortment of mouthwatering flavors, such as Hickory Smoked Brown Sugar, Slow Smoked Mesquite, Sweet Teriyaki, and Slow Roasted Golden Rotisserie.
For lunch the other day I used their Sweet Teriyaki Marinated Fresh Pork Tenderloin for this amazing Teriyaki Pork Bahn Mi sandwich. Outstanding flavor and it’s gluten free for those watching that!
Teriyaki is actually a Japanese cooking technique in which foods are broiled or grilled with a glaze of soy sauce, mirin, and sugar. The marinated Sweet Teriyaki Marinated Fresh Pork Tenderloin is perfect for this Teriyaki Pork Bahn Mi sandwich.
I pan seared and then oven baked this for succulent, tender slices to put in the this pork bahn mi sandwich. These marinated pork tenderloins are so convenient and meals are on the table in 30 minutes!
Another option is to purchase unseasoned pork tenderloin, then use my teriyaki sauce recipe to marinate the meat.
What I find is most pre-packaged, marinated meats always seem overly salty, Smithfield’s do not. Smithfield Marinated Fresh Pork has a wide variety of fresh cuts, including pork roasts, loin filets, sirloins, pork chops and tenderloins, and can be sliced or cubed for even faster cooking. Couldn’t be simpler, right? Like this Teriyaki Pork Bahn Mi!

Teriyaki Pork Bahn Mi Sandwich
- 1.15 lb Smithfield Sweet Teriyaki Marinated Fresh Pork Tenderloin
- 1 tbsp vegetable oil
- 4 French Baguette Rolls
- 3/4 cup mayonnaise
- 2 tbsp Sriracha Sauce
- 1 cup carrot shredded
- 1 cup Persian or long English cucumber thinly sliced
- 1 cup daikon radish shredded
- 4 tbsp seasoned rice wine vinegar
- 2 tbsp sugar
- 1/2 tsp salt
- Preheat the oven to 450˚F.
- In a bowl mix together the vinegar, sugar and salt and microwave for 30 seconds. Stir and let stand at room temperature for 5 minutes. Add the carrot, cucumber and daikon radish, tossing to coat. Set aside.
- In another small bowl whisk together the mayonnaise and Sriracha sauce. Set aside.
- In a large skillet with an oven proof handle, heat 1 tablespoon of oil over medium heat. Add the tenderloin and cook, turning frequently, until brown on all sides, about 8-10 minutes.
- Transfer to the oven and roast for 12 minutes. (See Note 1)
- Remove pork from the pan and keep warm. Let rest 5 minutes prior to cutting the tenderloin into thick 1/4” slices.
- Slice the rolls lengthwise and gently remove some, but not all, of the soft bread creating a slightly hollow bread boat. Spread the Sriracha mayonnaise on the inside of each roll half. Add several slices of the teriyaki pork tenderloin and top with pickled vegetables, cilantro and mint. Add sliced fresh jalapeños if desired (optional).
- Don’t overcook your pork, keep it nice and moist, not dried out. Internal temp should be between 145°-160°F and allow meat to rest at least 5 minutes.

Hi Kevin. I was looking for a way to use up a lot of smoked pork loin that we have and stumbled across your recipe. I have never tried to make bahn mi at home, and your recipe looked like something we could tackle. I reheated the sliced pork loin in your teriyaki sauce–that was a good idea. Then we whipped up the rest of the ingredients and made our sandwiches. DELICIOUS!! We all loved it. My teenage son kept asked what the name of our sandwiches was. I think the combination of all the elements makes this so delectable. MMMMM!! Thank you for sharing this recipe. We’ll definitely make them again. Perfect combination of spicy, sweet, crunchy, and filling!
Excellent! So happy to read this Erin. Cheers!
This was simple and delicious! I found the marinted pork at Albertson’s and it was very tasty. The seasonings were absolutely on point and I will add this to my go to recipes. The only thing different I did was put the rolls in the oven for a few minutes to get a nice crunch on the roll.
Sounds mighty good to me Patti. Thanks so much for taking the time to come back and let me know! Cheers! 🙂
Kevin, I have been jonesing for Bahn Mi ever since K Sandwiches burned down! I tried this last night and it really hit the spot. I was concerned that half the delight of Bahn Mi was the horrible meat filling, but it was downright tasty with tenderloin! One thing that I could have done better was use a very fresh French roll or baguette, rather than day old. My bad. The pickled vegetables, Sriracha mayo and zing of fresh jalapenos was spot on. Thank you for posting this one!
I plan to try your Bacon wrapped Sriricha Carrots fot Christmas!
Thanks so much for coming back to let me know Eva!
MMM, I’d put that sauce on jus about anything.
Okay YUUUUM. I’m a sucker for a good sandwich, and this one looks GREAT. 100% need to try!
Hi Karly! Hope this finds you well. All these flavors are such a mouth explosion. Thanks for stopping by! 🙂
The local Vietnamese sandwich shop by me just closed down, so I’ll have to give this a try at home!
Glad I could assist Kevin! 😉
Hey Kevin! Wow, what a gorgeous sandwich with such great flavors! You are making me hungry. I use pork tenderloin quite a bit as it is one of the few meats that is still reasonably priced. What would you suggest I could use in place of the daikon radish? No way can I find one here.
I would just slice up some small red radishes Dorothy, it’s all about the slight bite and crunch!
