I love a good mash up of cultural cuisines and this Teriyaki Pork Bahn Mi Sandwich takes one of Japan’s best sauces and mixes it with the amazing Vietnamese bahn mi sandwich for a memorable lunch or Game Day snack!

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!
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.
