    Spicy Mayo

    6 tablespoons reduced-fat mayonnaise
    2 green onions, white parts only, finely chopped
    1 teaspoon hot pepper sauce


    1 pound ground pork tenderloin
    4 tablespoons dried basil
    4 garlic cloves, minced
    3 green onions, finely chopped
    1 tablespoon fish sauce
    1 tablespoon hot pepper sauce
    1 tablespoon sugar
    2 teaspoons cornstarch
    1 teaspoon black pepper
    1 teaspoon kosher salt

    Carrot and Daikon Topping

    2 cups carrots, julienned
    2 cups daikon, julienned
    1/4 cup unseasoned rice vinegar
    1/4 cup sugar
    1 teaspoon kosher salt
    1 tablespoon sesame oil

    6 10" baguettes


Spicy Mayo: Stir all ingredients in a small bowl. Cover and chill.

Meatballs: Gently mix all ingredients in a large bowl. Using wet hands, roll tablespoons of meat into 1" balls. Arrange on a baking sheet. Cover and chill.

Carrot and Daikon Topping: Toss first 5 ingredients in a medium bowl. Let stand at room temperature 1 hour, tossing occasionally.

Preheat oven to 300. Heat sesame oil in large skillet over medium-high heat. Add half of meatballs and saute until brown and cooked through, turning often to avoid over browning, about 15 minutes. Transfer meatballs to a bowl and repeat with remaining meatballs.

Cut each baguette in half. Pull out enough break to leave 1/2" thick shell. Spread 1 tablespoon spicy mayonnaise over baguette. Fill with 5-6 meatballs. Place Carrot and Daikon topping over meatballs. Press on top half of baguette.

    Thanks for this recipe. I don't eat meat most days, so I marinated some tofu. Also added cilantro, mint and lettuce to the sandwich. (Probably should have bought basil, but forgot.) Very yummy. - 12/7/15
