Slow Cooker Vietnamese Banh Mi Sandwich

Home » Slow Cooker Vietnamese Banh Mi Sandwich

Today I bring you a recipe from my cookbook. It’s full of fun, delicious, and easy-to-make recipes. The recipe uses fresh, whole ingredients (no cream of any soup!) and requires very little prep. This recipe will give you a nice sneak peak into the book with the popular Banh Mi Sandwich. It’s super easy to make and tastes so good!

Did I mention this is my favorite sandwich? Seriously, enough is enough!
