Are you like me and have about 45 different condiments in your refrigerator? I know I’ve probably said this time and time again, but my wife want me to get another refrigerator for the garage, just to store my condiments. Yep, seven mustards, fish sauces, oyster sauce, you name it, I probably have it. I love condiments. I’ll admit that. I love everything they have to offer in terms of adding flavor to anything you throw at them. There is one condiment that I totally love though, and that is horeradish. Yeah, that pungent, gnarly root of a sauce that opens the nasal passages and give you an awesome kick. What I love with horseradish though is beef. Beef and horseradish is like the peanut butter and jelly sandwich combination. They are meant for one another. They truly are a perfect marriage.
This past Christmas, I knocked out my New York strip roast, and as I made things like chimichurri, blue cheese sauce, caramelized onions, and steakhouse style mushrooms to go along with the steak, the horseradish cream sauce stole the show, at least in my opinion.
Let’s get started.
- 1/2 cup mayonnaise
- 1/4 cup sour cream
- 4 tbsp prepared horseradish
- 1/2 lemon, juiced
- 2 tbsp green onions, thinly sliced
- 1/2 tsp cracked black pepper
- 1/2 tsp salt, to taste
It doesn’t get any easier for a sauce, trust me.
Add everything to a mixing bowl, stir well, and taste. Season with any additional salt, pepper, or additional horseradish if you want it a bit spicier.
When you are ready to serve, spoon a generous amount of the horseradish cream sauce alongside your beef, or heck even better make some steak frites and dip some fries in it to boot.
The flavor combination will blow you away. Don’t even get me started on making a sandwich and smothering the horseradish cream sauce all over. Don’t.
That refrigerator? I probably need to get one in 2015. Maybe I’ll add that to one of my goals. Hope you enjoy!
