  • Combine remaining 1 tablespoon soy sauce, 1 tablespoon brown sugar, the rice wine vinegar, mirin and mint; mix until sugar dissolves. Add cucumber and marinate for 10 to 15 minutes.

  • In a small bowl, blend mayonnaise with the remaining 1 tablespoon oyster sauce, 2 tablespoons chili garlic sauce and 1/2 teaspoon sesame oil. Let sit for 5 minutes.

  • In medium-size saute pan or on hot grill, cook meat to medium-rare, until it registers 145° on an instant-read thermometer, about 3 minutes. Transfer pork to a plate or platter.

  • Drizzle olive oil on rolls and brown lightly on grill or under broiler, about 2 minutes. Spread mayo onto each roll, dividing evenly. Place pork in roll, top with marinated cucumbers, lettuce and cilantro. Slice in half and serve.
