Easy Horseradish Sauce

Leave a comment

Mr. Meat Eater and I don’t do anything special for Valentine’s Day so this year I decided to make a special dinner.

I was lucky to find a small prime rib at BJ’s Warehouse Club so I decided right then and there that that was what we were having.   For the rest of the menu we had mashed potatoes (which I rarely make) and steamed carrots.  I thought we needed some kind of sauce other than gravy so I made this horseradish sauce.  It is divine!  So nice and horseradish-y and it doesn’t make but about 1/2 cup so it’s not hanging around forever. If you live in the South like I do, use Duke’s mayonnaise.

I always wonder what to do with the leftover prime rib so this time I made sandwiches with warmed up beef, provolone slices, lettuce, tomato and a dab of leftover horseradish sauce.  I wrapped them up and heated them for a bit.  Yum!

Easy Horseradish Sauce

Easy Horseradish Sauce

2 heaping tablespoons prepared horseradish ~ we love horseradish so I used 3 tbsps.
1 tbsp cider vinegar
1 tsp dry mustard
3 tbsps mayonnaise ~ if you can get Duke’s, use that
1/8 tsp ground red pepper
1/2 cup sour cream ~ I used light

Whisk all the ingredients together in a small bowl and store in the refrigerator until needed. This should last at least a few days in the refrigerator tightly covered.

This would be great on baked potatoes, sandwiches, or for a dipping sauce for fries.

Makes about 1/2 cup or so.

Homemade Tartar Sauce

4 Comments

We love fish sandwiches and have them once a week.  One day while the fish was in the oven I discovered I didn’t have any tartar sauce so instead of running to the store, I made my own.   I have not purchased tartar sauce since.  This recipe tastes so fresh and it uses ingredients you probably have in your refrigerator already.  I usually make it at the last minute and I have never made the whole recipe ~ I usually make half or a third.

Horseradish Sauce

Horseradish is one of my very favorite things.  This sauce goes perfect with roast beef and is nice and horseradish-y.  Of course it’s super easy to put together.  The sauce is really white ~ the picture is just bad.

Super Easy Pizza Sauce

4 Comments

I love this sauce recipe and it’s what I use when I make pizza.  It freezes very well and I usually double or triple it when I do make it so I always have some in the freezer.  I use it with my Pizza Dough (Bread Machine) recipe.  We don’t like too much sauce on our pizzas so this amount would probably cover three pizzas but using it normally, I would say it covers two pizzas.

Red Wine Marinara

Leave a comment

A simple sauce that is so good. I like to serve it over a pasta with ridges so that the sauce really sticks to the pasta. I also use my stick blender instead of putting the tomatoes in the food processor.

Red Wine Marinara

1 29 oz can whole tomatoes
1 6 oz can tomato paste
1/3 cup red wine
1 shallot, minced
1 large clove garlic, minced
1 teaspoon Italian seasoning
1/2 teaspoon dried basil
1/2 teaspoon sugar
pinch of salt
generous dash of freshly ground pepper

Crush tomatoes in a food processor or blender. Combine all ingredients in a medium saucepan. Heat over medium heat until bubbly. Reduce heat to low and simmer for 1 hour, stirring occasionally.

Serve over your favorite pasta such as angel hair, spaghetti or linguine.
