Other Ingredients. You can use other ingredients to make this your own. Try it with mayonnaise, lemon juice, heavy cream, cayenne pepper for some extra heat, chives or other chopped herbs.
The Zing Factor. You'll get plenty of zing from the horseradish and a bit from the spicy mustard. You can easily add in more horseradish for a more powerful sauce. Try adding in your favorite hot sauce to bring up the heat factor. Cayenne pepper is also a nice spicy touch, or you can use your own favorite hot chili powder, or use your favorite spicy blend.
The Horseradish. I have made this recipe with both fresh horseradish root and prepared horseradish and love it either way. You'll get more pronounced flavor overall with fresh horseradish, but it takes longer for the flavor and zing factor to develop. Just keep it covered in the refrigerator a day or so. If you're looking for a quicker sauce, prepared horseradish is the way to go.
Serving Suggestions. I love serving my horseradish cream sauce with a nicely seared steak or with a spicy roast beef sandwiches or steak sandwich. It's bold flavor pairs it perfectly with steak or roast beef of any kind, like beef tenderloin. Try it with this Prime Rib Roast Recipe or this awesome Prime Rib Sandwich.
