Oh, Hi! I’m Juli.

I’m a food hoarder. And a really bad dancer. If you don’t know me well, you will probably not understand my humor. Therefore, I apologize ahead of time. Thanks for listening to my ramblings of my ever-changing life and trusting my kitchen mishaps. Your trust in me is appreciated.

  3. Juli you looked so stunning ! i saw on Snapchat, …. wow! Is that the Katie May dress? I tried it on during my recent wedding dress shopping trip it was one of my favs i loved it!!!!!

  4. Juli I have been enjoying your recipes and your blog since I found it in the fall of 2012. Thank you for all the time you’ve put into it and for all the wonderful recipes! I am so happy for you! It’s so neat to see how far you’ve come and how happy you are! Many years to you and your hubby!

    1. awwww thank you so so much for sticking around through it all, corrina! so cool to chat with people who have been there from pretty much the start!

  5. First of all you looked GORGEOUS on your wedding day (thank goodness for snapchat to creep haha). And these loaded fries are being made this weekend YUM!

  6. This was amaaaaaazing, Unfortunately, another one of those recipes I just didn’t want to stop eating. I don’t know how you come up with these voodoo magic flavor combos, but I am glad you do!!!

    1. i felt the same way, i couldn’t stop eating it either and then my husband didn’t get to try any of it lol! so glad you liked it!

  7. Just made this – soooo delish!!! i used ground turkey and se leftoever roasted sweet potato rounds since that was all i had on hand and it turned out great! perfect quick dinner after orange theory!

  8. OMG I made this tonight and it is the bomb!!! You’re recipes just get better and better Juli. Officially my favorite food blog 🙂

      1. So I’m making this yet again because I love it… and now I’m smh because I wrote you’re instead of your! so embarrassing! But seriously i think this is one of my top five favorite things to eat lately 🙂

  9. Made this last night – I think it’s my husbands new favorite meal. It was requested that we “please make this our dinner every Friday”!

  10. I made this tonight and Holy. Crap. I. Just. Died. And. Went.To. Bahn. Mi. Heaven. Is there such a thing? If not, there should be. Even my 2 girls who absolutely hate anything that doesn’t contain taco meat went crazy for this! Great recipe!

  11. This recipe is delicious! I’ve made it several times for different people (paleo and non-paleo eaters) and it’s always a hit. Thank you for putting out new recipes constantly, I always look forward to them. You da best.

  12. I made this recipe earlier this week and thought it was delicious — my boyfriend who doesn’t love Asian food also thought it was really good! Thanks for another great recipe!

    1. sorry about that, Thuy. I’ve found multiple different spellings online so it’s hard to know what is correct since i don’t speak vietnamese. next time, i recommend saying something like “just wanted to let you know that it’s actually spelled bánh mì” instead of being rude. it really gets you farther in life. have a wonderful day!

  13. Hi Juli, loved this recipe! One question, what can I sub for fish sauce? I want my husband to try it but he can’t eat fish sauce. Thanks!

    1. there really is no sub for fish sauce, but you could just leave it out! just know that it won’t taste exactly the same but i’m sure it will still be delicious!

  14. Made this tonight with roasted butternut squash instead of the white sweet potato fries — it was soooo amazing! Thank you for such a great recipe!

  15. So glad you came up with this plate of deliciousness. I seriously could not stop eating it. Thanks for yet another amazing recipe!

  16. This was perfect: easy to make and SO delicious! Thank you for sharing!
    The only things I did differently were: mix the pork seasonings/ingredients in a little bowl together first before mixing it into the pan with the pork. I also added some sliced red bell pepper and chopped up some basil to add since I had both at home. Can’t wait to eat my leftovers!
    (confession: this was my first time cooking ground pork and it certainly won’t be my last!)

  17. I made this for lunch today and it was SO GOOD. My husband wants it added to my regular cooking rotation now.

  18. These are so awesome and have been a staple in our house for a long time. Even my husband who often complains about our dinners being too paleo loves this one!

    The only thing, unless you like really really really hot food, I’d suggest cutting the spice to at least a third of what this calls for. I’m not a total spice wimp but also don’t like blazing hot and the few times I’ve forgot to modify the spice these were almost too spicy to eat!

  19. This is one of my go to recipes. I use cut up chicken breast instead of pork and love it! Thanks for creating recipes so amazing that I make them over and over again!

  20. I’d love to try this soon but I can’t seem to find white sweet potatoes anywhere. Can they be substituted with something else? 🙂

  21. We love this recipe!!! We skip the cucumbers on top because we’re lazy. We make tons of the sriracha mayo for on top. Seriously… double the normal recipe, quadruple+ the sriracha mayo.

  22. I’ve been making this recipe for years (made it tonight, in fact!) and it’s still one of my all time favorites!! I’ve introduced it to so many people who have fallen in love with it – it’s always a hit! Just wanted to come leave some love for this deliciousness!
