Roast Beef Sandwich Recipe

Looking for a fantastic lunch or snack? If so, try this roast beef sandwich. This sandwich is roast beef topped with provolone cheese, lettuce and avocados. The real highlight of this recipe is the spicy mayo, it has just the right amount of kick and adds great flavor to this sandwich. The spicy mayo is a combination of mayonnaise, Tabasco sauce, and chopped cilantro. It is important to dip the avocados in lemon juice or else they will turn brown. You might want to hollow out the bread a little to help everything stay in the sandwich (this sandwich is stacked!). This sandwich is so easy to make and so delicious, everyone will love it.  It might be even perfect for a football party. Enjoy.

I didn't even like roast beef but this sandwich looked so good I had to try it. I was so glad I did because it totally changed my mind. It was really good. I made one two days in a row.

Is the spicy mayo REALLY spicy? What would you compare it to in terms of spicyness? I personally like spicy foods but I wanted to make this for someone who doesn't really, so I was just curious.

Thanks :)
