Last Friday when I posted my recipe for Shredded Beef Taquitos, I mentioned that I would share a recipe for the awesome sandwiches I made the next day with the left over beef. First I wanted to jazz up the beef a little bit so I cooked it with some chopped serrano peppers, garlic and sliced onions. However, it was the addition of a quick sriracha mayo that made this sandwich absolutely delicious.
Sriracha has been one of my favorite condiments since I first found it at the Mongolian grill where Ryan and I had our first date. I know, I know messy food for a first date, but I was 15 and I wasn’t one of those girls who would only eat salad in front of boys. Sure I’d eat a salad, if it was followed by a delicious pasta :) But back to the sriracha. I love sriracha because it adds a nice spicy kick to many different meals. It goes well with stirfries, pizza and even eggs. Heck my little sister would even squirt some on potato chips. For this meal, I mixed it with a little rice wine vinegar and some mayo to make a perfect spread for my sandwich.

You’re welcome Marta! The mayo is delicious and I think it would work well on other things too.
Thanks Cassie! It’s nice to hear that you made the cookies, and even better to hear that they didn’t last long :)
Thanks Kevin! That chipotle mayo sounds wonderful!

Nice looking sandwich! I have done chipotle in adobo mayonnaise before. I will have to try sriracha mayo next.

Love it. Oh and I make your fudge cookie. They didn’t stick around very long.

Great sandwich Des! I like using the same components a bit differently, from the taquitos to this sandwich! the mayo must really add a different spin. I’ve never tried it, but now I feel that I will!
Thanks for sharing :)
