Next December, I am spending Christmas vacation in Asia and a big chunk of that trip is going to be spent in Vietnam.  One of the things I am most looking forward to on that trip is the cuisine.  I am really adventurous when it comes to food and can't wait to enjoy tastes and flavors not typically found or celebrated here in the U.S.

Well, this morning here on WBKR, our friends from Kentucky Legend served up a sneak preview. Brooklyn Maple joined us with a spicy Pork Chop Banh Mi sandwich.  And this recipe, in a pretty unique and remarkable way, blends flavors from Vietnam with flavors from right here in Kentucky.

Check this out!  Here's how to make a delicious Pork Chop Banh Mi that will give you a taste of both worlds.
