A roast beef dinner is the one of the best parts of the holiday season. This homemade creamy horseradish sauce is #4 and final recipe in this weeks complete holiday meal. This sauce is the perfect adornment to the herb roasted beef tenderloin and don’t forget to check out the fabulous side dishes, cheesy rosemary mashed potato and slow cooker green beans with shallots and almonds.

I have never been a fan of any horseradish sauce. Growing up in England, roast beef dinners are usually served every Sunday and think I remember trying the sauce once and never went back. Now I realize, it’s all about making your own and it really is so easy (check out the video above).
This would make the perfect horseradish sauce for steak too.
You’ve all seen fresh horseradish in the produce department. It’s the ugly white and brownish looking root that no one seems to buy. All you have to do is peel it, grate it and mix it with vinegar, heavy cream, a little sugar, some mustard powder and you’ve got the most delicious sauce.
A healthy alternative
Where it is OK to indulge during the holidays, a healthier, lower fat alternative to the heavy cream is low fat sour cream that you can use on a more regular basis.
This recipe is for a fairly thick sauce, but if you like it a little thinner, just add more vinegar and cream. You can really make it how you like it. If you like it a little more spicy, add more horseradish. Once you make your own and make it how you like it, you’ll never buy the bottled sauce again.
