Beef Sandwiches Designed for Outdoor Eating When a Grill Is Not Available

Occasionally a grill is not readily available for outdoor get-togethers and picnics. To overcome this problem, pack up some Guacamole-Topped Beef Sandwiches to carry with you.

Use thinly sliced cooked beef and a lot of tasty extras like olives, lettuce, tomato, onion rings and cheese. Wrap securely in plastic wrap and carry in an insulated bag, keeping out of direct sunlight.
