Turkey Banh Mi Sandwiches with Pickled Daikon and Carrots


Mealthy Tip

Pickled daikon and carrots can be made ahead of time and refrigerated. Dark meat turkey is essential to this sandwich, with the richness of the meat holding up to the spices and staying moist when cooked. In a pinch, use white meat turkey, but reduce cooking time by about 1 minute. While using a grill pan indoors is fine, grilling the meat on a charcoal grill is best, as is grilling the bread.

This Banh Mi was very interesting with the turkey. I have only bought white turkey meat normally, but I absolutely understand why dark meat is recommended. It produced a lot more flavor and was still pretty moist. Will make this again finger sandwich style for a group.

Even though Bahn Mi is traditionally made with pork, I loved this ground turkey version. The lemongrass gave it a refreshing taste, that was surprisingly delicious. I grilled the meat and the bread, and both turned out perfect. I'll probably make these again for the next game day.

I used both cilantro and jalapeño for topping on my sandwich, and it was fantastic. I also added onion to the mixing bowl with carrot, daikon, vinegar, agave, etc. Great recipe and I actually really liked the use of turkey.

The lemongrass-infused turkey patties were amazing. I didn't use pickled daikon but I did use carrots and all the fixings. Next time I may try this recipe but as sliders. Yummy!

I didn't use lemongrass, couldn't find it! Still turned out great. I also can't stand the taste of fish sauce, so I used Worcestershire sauce instead. I read somewhere that it was a great substitute, and it worked well.
