If you haven’t tried Bahn Mi or maybe even never heard of it, you should give it a try. It’s a Vietnamese dish that roughly translates to “On Bread”.
This is typically done with a fatty meat, like pork but we are geared up to try with duck, wild turkey or even a mixture of venison and pork.
Give this one a try and let us know what you think.
