3
Remove from the heat and let cool for a few mins, then stir in the ssamjang to dissolve it
4
Stir in the soy sauce, vinegar, and sesame and taste the sauce. No one flavor should stand out, but all should be present and accounted for. Adjust as necessary

Marinade your choice of meat overnight or at least 2 hours in a sealed zip lock
7
Remove the meat from the marinade and save some of marinade for brushing

Spread magarine or butter over both slices of baguettes

Brush the meat on both sides with the leftover marinade. Cook for a few mins.

Turn off the grill and remove the meat from it. Let it sit for 10 mins for the juice to come out
13
Start assambling each sandwich; shredded lettuce, a few sprigs of cilantro, jalapenos, meat and then roasted onions on top. Top it with another side of the bread. Enjoy!
