OMG – so good. This is normally served in a Vietnamese baguette, but I have opted for a simple brioche bun. This is such an amazing combo. If you are not used to eating these flavours, I urge you to give this a go. It’s magic.

Ingredients

Quantity Ingredient
4 brioche buns, cut in half lengthways
80g unsalted butter, softened
80g see method for ingredients
140g asiago pressato, grated
100g monterey jack, grated
12 slices see method for ingredients, plus 4 tablespoons soy caramel (reserved from the pork)
80g see method for ingredients
80g see method for ingredients
1 green chilli, seeded and thinly sliced
1 red birds eye chilli, seeded and thinly sliced
1/2 cucumber, peeled, seeded and cut into 6 cm batons
4 tablespoons fresh coriander leaves, plus extra to serve if desired
4 tablespoons see method for ingredients
or store-bought kewpie mayonnaise

Method

  1. Preheat a grill. Butter the four bottom halves of the brioche buns and spread the chicken liver parfait evenly on top. Distribute and flatten the grated cheeses on the inside of the top part of the bun and drizzle a tablespoon of the soy caramel onto each. Grill these cheesy top parts of the bun to melt the cheese and toast the bun, then reserve.
  2. Arrange three slices of cooked pork belly on top of the parfait on each slice and then add the pickled carrot, daikon, sliced green and red chillies and cucumber. Add the coriander and mayonnaise and top with the cheesy bun half.
  3. Heat a toasted sandwich press and cook the buns for a minute or two to flatten them and press the fillings together. Cut in half and serve with fresh coriander, if desired.

Pro tips

  • The pickles add crunch and relief from the sticky pork and rich chicken liver parfait and the soy caramel marinade is a revelation and can be used for so much more than this sandwich. (It’s great for a roast pork marinade.)
