Creamy Horseradish Sauce FAQs
Creamy horseradish sauce is a mixture of sour cream, prepared horseradish, Dijon mustard, champagne vinegar, Worcestershire sauce, fresh chopped chives, salt and pepper, and, optionally, Tabasco sauce. Tangy sour cream is the balance you need for a spicy ingredient like horseradish, while the Dijon mustard and champagne vinegar add an acidic touch. If you want to add a kick, a few dashes of Tabasco sauce is a great addition.
Prepared horseradish is also known as pickled horseradish, as it is prepared with vinegar, salt, and sugar, and is the primary ingredient for horseradish sauce. Creamy horseradish sauce is typically blended smooth to use as a condiment.
Horseradish is a common ingredient served with prime rib as it cuts through and compliments the buttery richness of the beef. Making it into a creamy horseradish sauce adds a velvety texture and tangy flavor perfect for pairing with prime rib.
Some recipes use mayonnaise in creamy horseradish sauce, but for this recipe, sour cream is used. This gives you a lighter version of horseradish sauce than those using mayonnaise.
The only ingredient you need to be mindful of is the Worcestershire sauce as not all are gluten-free. To be safe, purchase a gluten-free version or leave out the Worcestershire altogether.
To freeze horseradish sauce, place it in an airtight bag and freeze for up to 6-8 months. Make sure to label with the freezing date and allow to thaw in the refrigerator when ready to use.
What is horseradish?
Prepared horseradish is a condiment made from the large, white horseradish root and is readily available at the grocery store.
Horseradish is in the same family as mustard and wasabi, so you know it packs quite a bite! It is most widely used as a condiment, both by itself and as an ingredient in sauces and dressings.
You can use as little or as much horseradish as you like in this easy sauce recipe. It all varies by taste.
A little bit of horseradish goes a long way, so if you're unfamiliar with the flavor I would suggest starting with smaller amounts and adding more as you taste!
How to Store Horseradish Sauce
Storing creamy horseradish sauce is super simple! Just place it in an airtight container and leave it in the refrigerator for up to 1 week.
I like to put the sauce in a mason jar and cover it tightly with the lid. It is perfect to dip carrots or celery sticks in for a quick and wholesome snack!
