Horseradish Sauce

SauceHorseradish

Sour cream based horseradish sauce. A great addition to steak or pork roast, and very easy to make.

I grew up with horseradish, sometimes called “German mustard”, as a common accompaniment to steak and pork dishes. With dad’s German heritage, no wonder there was always a jar of it in the house. These days I suspect many people are more likely to eat wasabi, a Japanese condiment with similar effect, than horseradish; I just don’t see it around that much anymore. That said, horseradish sauce, made with prepared horseradish and either whipped cream or sour cream, tastes great with steak or roast pork. Here’s a sour cream version.

    This is my go to recipe for horseradish sauce. We grow a raised bed of horseradish and make fresh when ever we have a rib eye steak. Probably should sit for awhile to get a little stronger but we make it when we are using it. Love this recipe. Pefect!!!!!!!!!!!!!
