About this recipe: These are by far the best sandwiches to serve your guests and yourself! The ingredients are fresh, delicious, popular and fills your mouth with marinated joy. This is my hearty vegetarian version (if you do not use fish sauce) using mushrooms.
To make this dish truly vegetarian, either omit the fish sauce or use a vegetarian fish sauce in its place.
Just so you know, adding fish sauce generally makes a recipe not vegetarian. - 26 Sep 2013
Assembling is easy - but the preparation took a while. You can use leftover radish and carrots for other Vietnamese dish, such as rice noodle bowl with grilled chicken or pork. - 22 Aug 2012
I have been eating Vietnamese sandwiches for a quarter of a century and this is by far the best recipe I have ever found for them. I have made them with bot portabello mushrooms and BBQ pork steaks sliced into thin strips. My sisters and I get together to make them every couple months and like tamales we make them in dozens for our family and friends to enjoy. - 10 Mar 2009 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
