Horseradish Sauce Recipe

This creamy Horseradish Sauce rivals the best Steakhouse horseradish I’ve tried in both Ruth’s Chris and the Cottonwood Grill. It is excellent paired with prime rib, steak or beef tenderloin.

Horseradish Sauce Recipe:

This horseradish cream sauce is so easy and will impress your dinner guests! It keeps well in the refrigerator for at least 2 weeks and only gets better as the flavors meld.

This sauce is creamy and balanced by the cider vinegar. It isn’t overly pungent and won’t mask the flavors of the excellent prime rib you’ve prepared. If you like your horseradish sauce a little more potent, add horseradish to taste.

What is Prepared Horseradish?

You can purchase jars labeled “prepared horseradish” in the refrigerated section of your grocery store.

If you have a fresh horseradish root growing in your yard, you can make homemade prepared horseradish in a food processor with some water, vinegar and salt but keep in mind homemade is twice as strong as store-bought so add it to taste.

Prepared horseradish is so versatile. We love it in crab salad, coleslaw and “Hron” (a Russian sauce with grated beets).

    Finally found a chef that I could actually follow. Recepies are simple to follow and most times have all ingredients without having to run to store, just finished making pumpkin cake and it smells delicious, thank you so much. Reply

    I’ve just grated fresh horseradish from the garden (I’m not crying from the fumes, honestly), and combined it with lemon juice instead of the cider vinegar, and unsweetened Greek yoghurt, s&p, and a finely chopped habanada chilli. It tastes ace already so a few hours to mature should make it awesome for the roast beef tonight. Reply

    I love this on steak, but I absolutely adore it on potatoes, especially roasted potatoes! I’m so glad I came across your recipe because I now keep this in my fridge just about all the time. Reply

    Oh my gosh, this recipe is superb. I made it for prime rib and just made it again for believe it or not, a dipping sauce for chicken wings. Rave reviews both times! Thank you so much!! Reply

    I’m sorry, but I might be the only one that didn’t like this recipe. The mayo taste came through along with the overpowering apple cider. Not sure why this received so many stars?–I would have gone with some lemon juice rather than the strong apple cider and skipped the mayo. Reply

    • Natasha
      May 11, 2019

      Hi Amy, I haven’t noticed the mayo overpowering. I wonder if maybe you used a different kind of horseradish (maybe a creamy horseradish sauce was used instead of a prepared horseradish that is called for in this recipe?). That could make all the difference. Reply

    How many carbs? Reply

      Hi Vera, usually the carbs display in the nutrition label and if they don’t display, that typically means there are 0 carbs. Reply

    I have used a similar recipe (no mayo). This is so much better!

    I actually grate my own horseradish and then stop the sharpness process after seven minutes with apple cider vinegar, so did not add more. It’s the way my Dad always prepared it:)

    I really enjoy your site and your videos. You make me smile. Reply

        Really good sauce however the prepared horseradish already has vinegar so next time I will skip the ACV…I like the pungency of the horseradish so I opted for an extra tablespoon and it rivaled my favorite creamy horseradish sauce from Chop House!
