-1 loaf old baguette (the older the better)
-1/2 lb ground beef
-1 large onion
-4 cloves garlic
-1 tsp salt
-1/2 tsp sugar
-1 tsp oil
-lettuce leaves and assorted fresh herbs
-basic fish sauce
-fresh bean sprouts and cucumber slices
-sour stuff
-onion oil (optional)
-toasted peanuts (crushed)

What to Do:
Cut baguette in half lengthwise. Give the bread a quick dip in water and steam over high heat for 10mins. Meanwhile, dice onions and mince garlic. Fry garlic in oil until fragrant, add beef and brown over high heat, drain the fat and add the onions, salt, and sugar to taste. Stir fry until onions are cooked.

To Serve:
Use scissors to cut steamed baguette into thin strips and arrange on a plate, top with stir fried beef, onion oil, and peanuts. Use a lettuce leaf as your “wrapper” to wrap together a slice of bread, beef filling, herbs, bean sprouts, sour stuff and cucumber slices. Give the roll a dip in fish sauce before taking a bite. This dish is served as seen in the picture, the diner wraps as they eat. Another serving option is to mix together everything in a bowl much like a salad.
