BBQ Beef Sandwich with Banh Mi Vegetables

I’ve been craving BBQ. I’ve also been craving Banh Mi. I really like the little pickles they put in the sandwiches. They do right by me… But not so much by my amine allergy. This low-amine version can be done as a sandwich, served as an open-faced sandwich, or even in cabbage wraps (though it was a bit juicy for the cabbage wrap).

Alternate serving: Low-Amine BBQ Beef Cabbage Wraps with Banh Mi Vegetables

2 1/2 lb chuck roast beef

2 Tbsp garlic powder

2 Tbsp onion powder

1/2 onion, diced

1/3 C parsley, minced

double batch of low-amine BBQ sauce

1 C water

3 carrots

1/2 onion

1 Tbsp ascorbic acid

1 Tbsp salt

2 C water (approximate)

Bread or cabbage for sandwich or cabbage wrap

  • Make a double batch of low-amine BBQ sauce.
  • Cut roast into cubes about 1 1/2 – 2″ thick.
  • In a stock pot, throw in chunks of beef, garlic powder, onion powder, onion, parsley, 1 C low-amine BBQ sauce, and 1 C water. Beef should be covered. If not covered, add another cup water and third cup BBQ sauce (or cut beef to 1″ cubes).
  • Cook on a low simmer for about 3 hours, covered, or until beef is tender and easily shredded with a fork.
  • Heat a pan or pot with a couple inches water to boiling.
  • Julienne carrots and toss them in the boiling water. Cook for no longer than 45 seconds – they only need a blanching.

  • Drain, and run under cold water until cool. Drain well and put carrots in a bowl. Sprinkle with 1 tsp ascorbic acid, and 1 tsp salt. Mix until all carrots are well coated. Set aside.
  • Cut your half-onion into “C” shaped half-rings. Lay in the bottom of a  tupperware. Add 2 tsp salt, and 2 tsp ascorbic acid. Add just enough cold water to cover the onions. Mix until salt and ascorbic acid are dissolved.
  • When the beef is nearing completion, drain onions well. Set aside.
  • Quickly give carrots a light rinse and drain all excess water. Set aside.
  • Using a slotted spoon, pull chunks of beef out and onto a plate. Using two forks, shred beef.

  • You can do the sauce one of two ways. To make it low-fat, discard BBQ liquid the beef was cooking in, as it is high in fats. If you don’t want to waste it, pour half the liquid out, but reserve half.
  • Mix beef in with 1C+ BBQ sauce (not the sauce the beef was cooking in).
  • Wash cilantro.
  • Build sandwich, cabbage wrap, or open-faced sandwich with vegetables on bottom, low-amine BBQ beef on top.
  • Garnish with cilantro, vegetables, and cayenne (if wanted).

  5. I have read that onions and onion powder were not allowed due to the high tyramine content, I’m looking to avoid tyramine for migraine and anxiety relief. Do you have research to the contrary?
    Thanks,
