Before I had even made the pot roast I knew that my first use for the leftovers would have to be pot roast sandwiches smothered in the tasty sauce from the braising. I think I might have been looking forward to the leftover sandwiches more than the actual pot roast itself. I could not see making this sandwich without a melted gooey cheese and I ended up going with some swiss. To melt the cheese I assembled part of the sandwich and placed it under the broiler with the cheese on top. To finish the sandwich off I was thinking about a horseradish and mayonnaise sauce. Horseradish goes well with beef and I thought that it would add a nice bite to the sandwich that would help balance out the cheese and gravy. The sandwiches turned out a little messy but they were so good!! Tender moist braised beef in a tasty gravy with gooey melted cheese is such a great combo. I also enjoyed the horseradish and mayonnaise flavour combo and it worked really well in the sandwich. I will be eating a few more of these sandwiches before the leftovers are gone.
