PIN THIS SO YOU HAVE THE EASIEST HORSERADISH CREAM SAUCE RECIPE WHEN YOU NEED IT!!
The first question I usually get when making this sauce is what is horseradish? It’s kind of a funny name. Most people have heard of it from the horsey sauce they’ve seen at Arby’s but haven’t made it at home.
Horseradish is a root vegetable in the mustard family (it’s cousins are kale, brussel sprouts and regular radishes) If you look for it in the store it kind of looks like a creamy white oversized carrot.
What makes horseradish hot? (spicy hot)
Right out of the ground it’s actually not that hot. It’s when it’s ground or shredded that the heat is released.
There is a compound in horseradish called “isothiocyanate” that when oxidized either by grating, shredding or actually chewing it that when crusher releases the heat.
Making horseradish milder, not as spicy.
We like horseradish and like it the spicer the better so we don’t mind eating it pure. But to make it milder often when it’s purchased at the store it has been mixed with vinegar which really cuts the heat back.
While you can buy the fresh horseradish in the produce department and grate it yourself for ease and time purposes I recommend buying the jarred horseradish at your local supermarket.
It’s usually in the cold section by hot dogs and sausages or where you would find sauerkraut.
Health Benefits of Horseradish
Using horseradish out of the jar was recommended to my by my doctor when I was trying to lose a little weight. It has less than 2 calories in a teaspoon, zero fat with low carbs and sodium. Used on its own its a condiment that will fit into any diet with out all the fat and calories while still adding a zesty flavor to whatever you add it to.
I would use it with a tablespoon of non fat yogurt to make a spread to go onto a roast beef slice for added flavor. It made me feel like I was still getting to eat the good stuff!
Horseradish Cream Sauce Ingredients:
How to make Horseradish sauce?
Homemade horseradish sauce is so easy to make and comes together in less than 5 minutes. Using a handheld or stand mixer you’ll add the whipping cream, horseradish and salt to the bowl and mix on high until nice and thick.
I usually make the horseradish recipe early in the day to let the flavor develop a little bit while it chills in the refrigerator.
PRO TIP: When measuring out the horseradish remove as much as the liquid as possible to not water down the whipping cream.
Horseradish Mayo Sauce/Aka Horsey sauce
If you’re looking for a horsey sauce recipe like they make at Arby’s substitute mayo for the heavy whipping cream. You won’t need to use a mixer to mix it, just use a spoon. (You can also use my fresh and easy mayonnaise recipe for mayo if you are into making your mayonnaise homemade!)
Sour Cream Horseradish Sauce
If you would prefer a sour cream based horseradish sauce you can substitute sour cream for the whipping cream. The only difference in making the recipe is you can just use a spoon to mix the prepared horseradish with the mayo.
Mustard Horseradish Cream sauce
Add 2 tablespoons mustard (I like whole grain, but dijon will work too) and 1 teaspoon of dry mustard to the bowl before using the mixer. Great to use on homemade corned beef!

In the base of a mixing bowl add all ingredients. Mix on high for 3-5 minutes until whipping cream is stiff.
Store in airtight container in the fridge until ready to use. Will keep for 3-4 days but will lose some of its volume.
