Horseradish Cream Sauce Recipe

Horseradish cream sauce is the perfect accompaniment for beef of all kinds, particularly roasts and steaks.


Horseradish cream sauce is a great complement to prime rib, roast beef, and even steak cuts like filet mignon. It is also great for roast beef sandwiches.

You can make this recipe with jarred horseradish from the store, but it's vastly improved if you use fresh, homemade preserved horseradish.

Horseradish cream sauce will keep for up to two weeks in the refrigerator in an airtight container.
