Horseradish Cream Sauce for Steaks

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.

Horseradish Cream Sauce Recipe

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!

Thank you for visiting my website. Truly, I do appreciate it. My free time and stress reliever is cooking for my family, friends, and everyone in between. The recipes you find on this site are those that I have either created, been part of, or those that I simply enjoy and have made my own in some shape, form, or other. My focus has always been on comfort food, because at the end of a long work day, you want something comforting. I currently am the father of three children, and married to a wonderful wife of thirteen years. There is nothing fancy with these recipes, just simple, and I will admit, not so simple ingredients, and a simple kitchen corner I can call my own. I learned early on that cooking and bringing family together was very important. After all, this notion of being together at dinner time was instilled early on by my parents. There are many memories of being in the kitchen with my parents, watching them cook, or preparing meals, or those home cooked smells while waiting for dinner. My parents who worked full-time, always had home cooked meals during the week, with the exception of Friday nights where we would enjoy a Wisconsin fish fry, and often on late afternoons on Sunday, where we would order Ann's pizza. I tend to cook by making things up. As a home cook, I think you have to take chances, and add or subtract ingredients that make up a dish, and make them your own. Remember to taste, and taste often. If a dish has potential, try it again, and make it your own. You should also note that I do not count calories, or break down recipes into grams of anything. To me, that's a bit boring. My philosophy is that if the food is good, eat it, and eat it in moderation. Life is just too short not to enjoy good food.
