Enjoy the game with a Pulled Pork Banh Mi Sandwich with Pickled Pineapple and Avocado! Perfect for easy entertaining, make-ahead game day grub!
There was a time in Asheley’s life that she was all about college sports. She knew the players. The coaches. The stats. And was totally one of those people that yelled at the television (like they can actually hear you). Somehow all of that slowed down big time when she met me.
I don’t know why. I’m the highly athletic type. Just look at my physique. I’m built for sports. Golf, curling, the occasional pool volleyball game (as long as 30 minutes has past since eating… safety first!). Why are you laughing?
Although Asheley doesn’t religiously watch her foosball and b-ball games like in the past, she’s always on board come this time of year. Ah… bracket madness is upon us! And I’m totally down to watch some games too, especially if some good game day grub is involved (duh). Game day eats like this Pulled Pork Banh Mi Sandwich with Pickled Pineapple, Pickled Onions, and Avocado.
And really, let’s be honest. It’s always more fun to watch the game with a crowd. And at our house, the crowd’s gotta eat. Unless you want to be in the kitchen the whole game, you need some easy entertaining mojo… and here’s my two big tips: make something that can be cooked ahead of time, and that can be assembled by your guests. Boom. Instant party.
That’s why I’m such a huge fan of these creative banh mi sandwiches. Everything is made way before tip-off, so you can sit back, relax, and focus on enjoying the game (and thoroughly devouring these bad boys, of course).
Let’s break this down…
- Stock up at your local grocery store with some Cobblestone Bread Co. rolls
- Up to a few days ahead of time, make your pickled pineapple, pickled onions, and spicy mayo
- Slow cook up some pulled pork the morning of your game-day festivities
- Slice up some avocado, pull out the cilantro, and let your guests have at it!
