Though mostly a steak purist—that's salt, pepper, and beef only—I've been know to dabble in toppers here and there (with the exception of steak sauce). Horseradish cream sauce is a rather new one for me, but while prepping a roast beef, it was that came to mind, plus it was a great use of my leftover homemade horseradish from last week.

Indeed, it was excellent. My inexpensive roast beef ended up needing an enhancement, and the creamy bite of the horseradish sauce added a little sharpness and slight tang that went incredibly well with the beef. The leftover sauce also works as a dip for a carrots or dolloped on a baked potato.
