The bánh mì has got to be one of my all-time favorite sandwiches. This burger-ized version contains juicy pork, pickled vegetables, and pâté, evoking the flavors of this Vietnamese classic in an all-American package.

You Will Need
In a large bowl, season the ground pork with the five-spice powder, salt, and pepper. Shape the seasoned meat into 2 patties.
Heat a cast-iron skillet over high heat. Add the olive oil and tilt the pan to cover the bottom. Sear the patties on both sides until cooked throughout, 5 to 7 minutes. Halve the burgers crosswise and arrange 2 halves on each split baguette.
In the same skillet, heat the Canadian bacon until hot and crispy. Layer the bacon on top of the burger halves, followed by pâté, carrots, daikon, cilantro, and lettuce. 4 Stir together the mayonnaise and Sriracha and spread over the top baguette half. Place atop the sandwich and serve hot.
