Notes

1- shredded beef could be replaced by pulled pork or shredded chicken
2- if you can't find sriracha mayo, you can make your own by stirring together ½ cup mayonnaise with 1 tablespoon sriracha
3- a vegetable peeler works great to make thin strips of cucumber
 
Storage
Beef sandwiches do not keep well for leftovers once assembled, however the beef can be cooked ahead:
