1/2 teaspoon pepper
1 teaspoon five-spice powder
2 lb boneless pork loin
1 cup julienne carrots
1/2 cup thinly sliced red onion
1 clove garlic, grated
1/4 cup white wine vinegar
1 teaspoon sugar
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 loaf baguette French bread
2 tablespoons mayonnaise
1 medium cucumber, sliced thin
1/2 cup fresh cilantro sprigs
4 jalapeño peppers, sliced, if desired


Heat oven to 400°F. Rub 1/2 teaspoon salt, the pepper and five-spice powder on pork loin. Place on cookie sheet.

Bake uncovered 20 to 30 minutes or until internal temperature of pork is 145°F. Let rest 10 to 15 minutes, then cut into thin slices.

In small bowl, mix carrots, red onion, garlic, white wine vinegar, sugar and 1/4 teaspoon salt. Cover; set aside.

Set oven control to broil. Cut baguette in half horizontally. Place on ungreased cookie sheet. Broil with top 4 to 6 inches from heat 1 to 2 minutes or just until lightly browned.

Slather toasted baguette with mayonnaise. Layer on sliced pork loin, cucumber, cilantro, jalapeño peppers, and onion and carrot mixture. Cut into 4 sandwiches, and serve.

    use daikon radishes in the pickle for more authentic flavor rather than the onions, also french paté spread in place of mayo is really good
