  • Make the juicy Cambodian pork meatballs according to our recipe and let them cool a little.
  • Prepared the quick pickle of carrots and daikon using our recipe, then set that aside and prep the salad ingredients and fresh fragrant herbs.
  • Heat your oven to 180˚C and pop the demi-baguettes in for a minute or so until they’re warm.
  • Slice the baguette lengthways but don’t cut all the way through.
  • Spread the creamy mayonnaise thickly on the bottom half of the baguette.
  • Layer with lettuce, cucumber slices, slices or carrots or a layer of quick pickle of carrots and daikon.
  • Squeeze in five pork meatballs per baguette, squirt on some homemade Sriracha, then add a layer of fresh fragrant herbs such as coriander, mint and basil, and (optional) a sprinkle of some finely sliced birds eye chillies.
  • Eat while the baguettes are still warm and enjoy!
