Say hello to one of the tastiest horseradish sauces ever. It’s a little spicy, so creamy, and complements steaks, prime rib, and roast beef.

This horseradish sauce only requires 6 ingredients and it’s super simple to throw together.

Unlike our prime rib au jus sauce, the sauce doesn’t require cooking. You only need to stir the ingredients together in a bowl so there’s very little work involved. It’s just as simple as our favorite blue cheese sauce!

Another thing that we love about this recipe is that you can throw it together ahead of time and keep in the refrigerator until you’re ready to use it.

We’ve included a few different ways that you can use this horseradish sauce at the bottom of the post too!
