Simple bread-y shells hold banh mi ingredients that will make you swoon.
Just down the street from my boyfriend’s house is a bustling street corner where a coffee shop, a gelato shop, and a divine little party gag store sit.
On lucky days, an Asian-Inspired food truck also sits at the street corner. The food truck owner is a pixie of a woman, with tiny shoulders and a fierce pixie cut. Fringe bangs finish her style. She is endlessly cool, and the food she serves is endlessly cooler.
On the days when she doesn’t park in the corner, I find myself with a mad penchant for Asian tacos. Just a few tiny little bites, so I feel as though I’ve had a party just for me.
Now I don’t have to wait for her to park her shiny food truck at the corner of 9th and 9th. Because this quick and easy homemade Banh Mi-ni Tacos recipe is easssssy. And quick. Gourmet perfection in 15 minutes, without leaving the comfort of your own kitchen.
To start things off, grab a package of precooked meat. I’ve written the recipe to include ground beef or shredded pork (carnitas). You can make it in the slow cooker, or buy it ready to go from the grocer. Whatever works for you.
Just mix it with some honey barbecue sauce and sriracha. Like, seriously. It’s that easy.
Coleslaw it up, now. Grab a bag of the pre-chopped Asian-inspired coleslaw. If they don’t offer such a bag at your home grocer, just grab the pre-chopped bag of regular coleslaw. It’s so okay.
You’ll mix this together with a few basic ingredients.
Now, grab a basic tube of Pillsbury biscuits. This is where things start to get good.
Roll out each biscuit. A little flour on a cutting board makes it easy.
Then toss those rolled biscuits onto a skillet heated to medium-low heat and coated in olive oil cooking spray.
Just cook both sides pancake-like until golden brown.
Layer the meat on your hot taco buns.
Top with coleslaw.
Then fold all taco-like and enjoy.
And just like that, these are ready!
