Vietnamese Sandwich

Reviewed: Jun. 5, 2007
“This is the BEST sandwich I’ve ever eaten!” said my 10 year old daughter. “Hey, even the hot sauce is tasty” said her 9 year old brother as he tore through another huge bite. No leftovers. Clean plates. No dinner conversation. Just lots of crunching and half-closed eyes while hungry people devoured these wonderful sandwiches. While I had been leery of the hot sauce, the lime juice seemed to magically cut it so that it was indeed not too hot for everyone to enjoy, REALY enjoy! This will go on our list of things to serve company in the future. We prepared all the ingredients for this recipe and then when the meat was ready had fun assembling our own sandwiches. I had purchased a boneless pork loin and had the lean end cut into twelve quarter-inch slices that we broiled. We used whole wheat hot dog buns. While the buns were great for the shape of the cucumber slices, I think a whole wheat hamburger or Kaiser type roll would have held up better to the lime juice. They were so delicious though; no one seemed to mind that their sandwiches kept getting soggy with the extra lime juice we kept squeezing on ?

Curried Coconut Chicken

Reviewed: Jun. 5, 2007
Like others I made a few modifications to fit what I had on hand: 2 # boneless pork loin-cubed, low-fat coconut milk, 1 small can each tomato sauce and paste. Plus I reduced sugar to 2 Tbs, cooked in a crock-pot on low for 10 hours, used a whole onion and stirred in a defrosted large bag of frozen baby peas just before we ate. Wonderful! Delightful color, flavor and everyone had seconds. A keeper recipe, easy and quick and with the kids starting the rice cooker for me (sweet, short grain organic brown rice, yum), dinner was ready when I walked through the door. The changes turned a great entrée into a wonderful one dish meal followed by fresh honeydew melon for desert
