Horseradish Cream with medium-rare roast beef

 

Horseradish is a traditional accompaniment to roast beef.  It has a spicy zing that pairs well with tender, juicy meat and makes a great addition to roast beef sandwiches and even mashed potatoes (it’s also great with oysters).  Fresh horseradish can sometimes be found at markets but I find the jarred kind easier for my purposes since I don’t use it too often and it will keep for a while.  Jars are typically found in the refrigerated area of the supermarket, often near the meat or dairy section.

This cream sauce is very easy to put together and is great with roasted meat.  You can also spread a little on some bread and top with cold leftover roast beef for a delicious sandwich with a bit of a kick.  It’s also fantastic with Braised Short Ribs or Oven Roasted Prime Rib.
