This version is, obviously, not a sandwich. One thing that makes a good Bahn Mi sandwich is the rolls they use and I was not about to butcher those amazing bits of goodness so when I found a recipe using the same flavors they put inside the sandwich but served over rice I knew this was a version I would feel comfortable making.
One thing I love about this recipe is you have your hot cooked rice and meat served with crunchy fresh pickled vegetables, fresh raw vegetables, and cilantro (which I am obsessed with).
Guys...this stuff is awesome. I have made this recipe multiple times for multiple people who have come to stay at our house and every time I have been asked for the recipe.

I love ham. We have a small family but I still buy a huge ham every Easter season so that I can make all the yummy leftover ham recipes. I usually just buy the spiral cut hams that have that yummy glaze with them, but sometimes I opt to buy the cheaper non spiral cut ones and make my own glaze. THIS ladies and gents is a keeper of a glaze. It's sweet and has the perfect flavors that pair nicely with the ham.

I had all the ingredients right in my fridge so that was an added bonus as I loathe going to the grocery store. I'm sure I'm not the only one out there who will do everything I can to find recipes that I already have the ingredients for so I can avoid getting dressed and dragging my children out for an epic battle at the store.
This recipe came together so quickly and had so much flavor jammed into the sauce. That is one thing I love about Asian cooking. It's usually simple and full of flavor, which for me is the way to go. Even my 5 year old daughter loved it and she has become the pickiest eater in the world.

One thing I have decided lately is that everything is better served on top of fries. We went to a little mom and pop sandwich place a couple weeks ago and they suggested that we try the fillings on top of fries instead of in the sandwich buns and holy smokes. It was so much better, and we all know how much I loves me some bread! So for me to say it was better on fries is saying a lot.
This recipe is simple, fast, and screams Southern California lovin. One thing I miss about living there is the amazing carne asada you could pick up pretty much everywhere. I'm here to tell ya that this is a great recipe if you want to get that So Cal vibe in your home for a meal. It won't let you down.

I don't do much cooking over the fire anymore for this recipe and instead use my handy dandy oven ;) but whenever I eat this it does remind me of those days.
This is seriously one of my favorite recipes because it is so versatile. I've made it with pork chops, with ground hamburger, and hot dogs. This is also my all time favorite meal to make as a freezer meal. It warms up so well and tastes like it was never in the freezer.

I know I know, most people stick to the amazingly amazing cheap hot dog and soda or the ridiculously massive slice of pizza but I almost always get these. I seriously crave these when I am sitting at home. And to be honest the ones in their freezer section are okay but not like the ones they make in the front.
Now I will be honest. This recipe isn't exactly like the ones they have up front, I feel like it has more of the ingredients that they serve in the ones you buy in the freezer section BUT that being said, it does taste pretty darn close.
