Homemade Horseradish Sauce that’s perfect as a condiment for prime rib, steaks, potatoes, or spread on sandwiches to give them some zip. Made in minutes!
When I roast a prime rib, nothing but a liberal sprinkling of kosher salt and pepper is needed. A good piece of meat needs nothing more. Save the marinades and such for other things.
But just because I don’t cook with nothing more than salt and pepper, it doesn’t mean I won’t accompany it with a great sauce. Horseradish sauce served alongside a cut of prime rib is simply amazing. It wasn’t until I dined out at a steakhouse while on vacation that I experienced this pairing. It seemed to be a pretty simple sauce made with sour cream and mayonnaise used as a base. It would be nothing to replicate at home. And, that’s what I did. But guess what? I made it even better by adding some grated garlic. Boom! What a difference. Maybe I should share with this information with that steakhouse?
To prepare, in a bowl, mix all of the ingredients and serve. That’s it. Easy huh?
I served this with prime rib for dinner and one of my guests was hesitant to try it. They weren’t sure horseradish was their thing. My glare must have made it more appealing because they quickly added a spoonful to their plate. Did I mention I’m half Italian and half Peruvian? Our glares are quite persuasive. I watched and waited for them to try it with a slice of meat. To their surprise, not mine, they loved it. More scoops followed. My motto: Try it first, then if you don’t like it I’ll respect that decision.
I recently posted salty golden smashed potatoes and it’s taken to the next level with this homemade horseradish sauce. How about a roast beef or ham sandwich with horseradish sauce spread on the bread instead of plain mayonnaise?
This recipe can be doubled, tripled, etc. Store any leftovers in an airtight container or jar and refrigerate. Keeps for a few weeks. Try it, you’ll, like it.
Be happy, eat well.
