How to make a horseradish sauce recipe for prime rib that’ll knock your family’s socks off…!
This recipe for horseradish sauce for prime rib is so simple, that I actually feel a bit guilty for writing an entire article about it. In fact, it is so easy, I’m pretty sure I could teach an orangutan the ins and outs of preparing it.
How to make horseradish sauce for prime rib
This is what you’ll need, are you ready?
*Prepared horseradish (the hotter, the better!)
*Fresh ground black pepper (don’t ever use plain pepper from a shaker)
Yep, that’s it. It couldn’t be any simpler to make this creamy horseradish sauce for prime rib. In fact, the sauce is so rich and creamy that it actually goes well with almost any cut of steak you can imagine; rib-eye (which is actually the same cut of beef as prime rib, just prepared differently), top sirloin, filet mignon, t-bone, porterhouse (which is actually a t-bone with a larger portion of the filet mignon left in place), Delmonico, brochettes, and the list goes on and on. I’ve even been known to use a horseradish cream sauce on ham or turkey, though I like to cut back on the amount of horseradish I use in order to not overpower the meat.
Now, this recipe is incredibly simple, but that doesn’t mean you can’t step it up a bit and add a little zest. did you notice that I didn’t even include any measurements with the recipe? This is because the amount of horseradish that you add to the sour cream is entirely up to you, as is the amount of cracked black pepper. I’ve made this recipe hundreds of times, at home and in various restaurants I’ve worked in, and I can honestly say that I’ve never measured any of the ingredients.
Now, I said you could spice it up a bit right, and that’s because the sour cream can get a bit watered down as you add more and more horsey sauce. So, I like to add some mayo and some sort of fancy brown mustard to the mix to help keep things nice and thick. It also helps to add additional creaminess to the sauce. But, it’s totally optional.
There you have it, a horseradish sauce recipe for prime rib that you can be proud to serve to family and friends. It only takes minutes to make, and is best if stored in the refrigerator for at least a few hours. Also, this recipe will keep for several days, even up to a week, so don’t throw it away after only one use. See what else you can find to enjoy it with.
Of course, if you don’t feel comfortable making this recipe, or you just don’t wanna be bothered by it, then you can always purchase it online. Heck, you can buy nearly anything on the internet, so why would this be any different.
