What Goes with Prime Rib? Horseradish Cream Sauce

by Sarah on March 29, 2011

I made this creamy little sauce–with a kick–at a recent party that featured prime rib. You know, the prime rib that I showed you yesterday. It couldn’t have been easier to whip together.

The ingredients may even be things that are already hanging out in your refrigerator door.

Step one:  Mix it together.

The end.

I always like to garnish sauces with a little of the herb–or one of the ingredients, at least–that is part of the sauce.  It gives a little hint of what’s in there.

I also make this horseradish cream for a little steak sandwich canape, and it would also be good on a steak or roast beef sandwich.  I bet you can think of other ways to use it!

Horseradish Cream Sauce


  • 1 cup sour cream
  • 1/4 or more horseradish (I particularly like the extra-hot variety)
  • 2-3 Tbsp chopped fresh chives (plus an extra chive or two for garnish)
  • freshly ground pepper to taste


  • Mix together sour cream, horseradish, chives and pepper. Adjust seasonings to taste.
  • Garnish with extra snipped chives.
