I had never tried Horseradish Sauce before, but now I’m a fan. The family loved this recipe. I substituted apple cider vinegar for lemon juice.

Made this tonight, to go on corned beef. Substituted for lactaid sour cream and vegan mayo (Hellmann's). 1000% loved by my family. They were even putting it on their bread. I think I'll use a bit more horseradish next time, because oh yes....there will be a next time. Delicious! ❤️

I usually stop after your first 2 ingredients and call it a creamy horseradish sauce but this sounds seriously good. It just so happens I have some leftover prime rib from Christmas. I’ll have to give this a try. Thanks.

When you say “prepared horseradish” it the creamy version?


Tuesday 3rd of January 2023

Hello Roxie! You can use either. The creamy version is milder in flavor. I use the jar of regular horseradish, which is much stronger. Kelly
