This is one of our go-to's for an accompaniment for prime rib and it's also amazing on sandwiches as a condiment. And, it's super easy!

  1. Sour cream
  2. Mayonnaise
  3. Coarse grain mustard
  4. Freshly prepared horseradish:
  5. Freshly ground pepper
  6. Kosher Salt

  1. In either a mixing bowl or serving dish, add roughly equal parts sour cream and mayonnaise. If you prefer the taste/consistency of one over the other, then add slightly more or less of each one to suit your taste. Honestly, you could omit one of the two to suit your taste. My personal preference is to tilt the mix towards more sour cream, but the "right" mix is completely up to the chef.
  2. Add coarse grind mustard. For 1-2 cups of sour cream and mayo, I would start with approximately 1-2 heaping teaspoons of coarse grind mustard and then add more if you prefer it to be a bit more mustardy.
  3. Add horseradish. The quantity here is 100% personal taste. I'd start with a heaping tablespoon and mix thoroughly and let sit for 3-5 minutes and then taste and add more if you like it more pungent. I like it pretty strong, so I typically add a good bit more.
  4. [Optional] Add a pinch of kosher salt and a pinch of freshly ground pepper. If you don't want to see the pepper in it, then use white peppercorns.

It's best if you make it at least an hour or more before serving, but it will work right away too. If making ahead, just cover w/ plastic wrap in serving dish or transfer to a jar or storage container with a lid and keep in refrigerator. Will keep for at least 2 weeks.

Sounds good. There is a mustard called Lusty Monk, made in Albuquerque, that would be awesome in this.

Thanks for the recipe TJ! Gotta love a good horseradish sauce on Prime Rib. I use it on roast beef and brisket sandwiches too.
