See those rays of light that seem to be emanating from this delightful creation??? I'm sure they're no accident, because this sandwich is heavenly.
Thin slices of seasoned roast pork, marinated cucumbers, lettuce, cilantro and a spicy mayonnaise, are all tucked into a lightly toasted club roll.
We had half of a leftover teriyaki roast pork loin sitting in the fridge, so I didn't need to prepare the meat. We just whipped up the mayonnaise and marinated the cucumbers. What a great way to use left over pork!
For the cucumbers:
Marinate thinly sliced, peeled cucumber in 1 T. soy sauce, 1 T. brown sugar, 1/4 C. rice wine vinegar, 1/4 C. mirin, and 1 T. fresh minced mint for 10-15 minutes.
For the mayonnaise:
Mix together 1/2 C. mayo, 1 T. oyster sauce, 2T. chili garlic sauce, and 1 t. sesame oil. Let stand for 5 minutes. (Use less chili garlic sauce if you're not a fan of spicy food, but do use at least a little!)
Assemble, enjoy, and then reminisce about it next day with your significant other!
