Teriyaki Beef Banh Mi with Sesame Cucumber Salad

Teriayki Beef Banh Mi with Sesame Cucumber Salad

This tasty meal is a take on a traditional Vietnamese sandwich and a great way to use leftover beef you grilled the night before. If you don’t have any leftovers, simply grill skirt steak or flank steak marinated in teriyaki sauce and cool completely. This sandwich would be great with rotisserie chicken as well!
