Recipe: Sour Cream Horseradish Sauce

My family has always loved horseradish in sauces. It is a natural addition to sour cream and is typically a German accompaniment to many foods, especially beef. So when I had a Sour Cream Horseradish Sauce served with potatoes… it was naturally a hit with me. Something about that little bite that you feel all the way to your nose…. I just love it.

Now this sauce has as much or as little bite as you like. I wrote the recipe to have a mild flavor… if you’re like me and like it a bit sharper… just add more horseradish to your taste.

This recipe is very basic… and much of it is to your personal taste.


I keep horseradish sauce in the fridge.. you can find it either in the deli section or the condiment section of the grocery store. It’s ready to use and is pretty much like a horseradish mayo… you can use that instead of the prepared horseradish in the recipe.. either will work… the sauce is usually milder.

You can find prepared horseradish in the dairy section of the grocery store.. it’s usually in small jars.

Unless you know the strength of the horseradish… start with a small amount and add to your taste.

You can use lower fat sour cream.. but the real deal is awesome with this.

Enjoy it on grilled beef or pork… actually just about any meat… this makes a great fondue sauce for beef too.

It also goes well with baked potatoes and even fries. Add a bit into mashed potatoes for some kick… this sauce is very versatile.
