A quick horseradish sauce. Four pantry ingredients, stir, and voila: the best friend a beef roast ever had.



  • ½ cup sour cream
  • ¼ cup prepared horseradish (from the refrigerator case at the grocery store)
  • 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard (optional)
  • 1 teaspoon fresh ground black pepper (optional)


  1. Make the sauce: Stir the sour cream, horseradish, mustard, and pepper in a small bowl. Taste and add more horseradish if it needs more kick.


The measurements are just estimates; when I make this recipe, I eyeball it. I want roughly 2 parts sour cream, 1 part horseradish, and a little mustard and pepper.

This recipe scales up or down as needed. Serving a crowd? Double it. (or triple, or quadruple…)
