Horseradish Sauce

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

Horseradish Sauce Recipe

  • Prep time: 2 minutes
