This horseradish sauce recipe is a simple to make, and very tasty version of the classic cold sauce for roast beef.

One tip when making horseradish sauce recipes is to taste the prepared horseradish alone before starting the procedure, as different brands can vary greatly in spiciness.

Prep Time: 5 minutes

Total Time: 5 minutes


  • 1/3 cup prepared horseradish (or to taste)
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice (or to taste)
  • 1/2 cup mayonnaise
  • 1 cup sour cream
  • pinch of cayenne
  • salt and fresh ground black pepper to taste


In a small bowl, whisk the ingredients mayonnaise and sour cream until combined. Add the rest of the ingredients to taste, and stir to combine. Refrigerate for 1 hour before serving.

Fresh and tangy, Member lilypie36

I liked this sauce. I used on roast sirloin instead of prime rib, but it was very nice. I disagreed with the last review since most of these sauces call for vinegar and i liked the freshness of the lemon juice instead. Of course, I love lemon so I am bias. But I thought it was a nice balance with the horseradish.
