Creamy Horseradish Sauce - Creamy and zesty, this sauce is a perfect accompaniment to beef.


We’re sharing one more recipe today to make your Perfect Prime Rib dinner even more delicious – a fantastic Creamy Horseradish Sauce to serve along with it!

In my opinion, the zesty flavor of horseradish is a perfect complement to any steak or roast beef dish. This Creamy Horseradish Sauce is cool and creamy with a gentle heat, and spooned on top of a slice of prime rib – it helps balance and enhance the richness of the meat.

This Creamy Horseradish Sauce is very easy to make – just mix all of the ingredients in a bowl. But it’s best served chilled so be sure to prepare this sauce in advance – while your prime rib cooks – and refrigerate it until ready to serve.

    How long will this sauce last in refrigerator? I made it last Friday for a party and I have alot left to be used for Christmas. Should I just make fresh?

    • Jack wrote:

      It will last as long as the shortest code you used on mayonnaise, sour cream and horseradish. For example, if your sour cream has an expiration date of two weeks from now and the other two are longer, you should stop using it on the expiration date of your sour cream. That said, if you let it sit out for hours at room temperature, I would not save it at all.

    This is an insanely good horsey sauce recipe. I have $175 worth of prime rib on my smoker right now and can’t wait to slather this sauce all over it. Great job!

      Thanks Mark! Sounds like you have a fantastic dinner planned!!

    So this is yummy! I have made it as is, and I’ve added a bit of this-and-that at times too! My last batch included maybe a tbsp or a bit more, of sweet relish, about a tsp of fresh dill, and roughly a tsp or so of fresh mined garlic. Winner. (For those wondering about getting that horseradish nice a dry – cheesecloth is awesome.:))

    Thank for this addition to whatever!

    I have never used horseradish before, eager to try thus recepie. Can I use the horseradish that is already prepared, and just add the remaining of the ingredients, or does it have to be just plain horseradish?

    • Martha wrote:

      Hi Grace – Yes – you can use the prepared horseradish (just not the horseradish that is already in a cream sauce.) Enjoy!
