A very good sauce. I added about 1/4 cup of mayo to the recipe because I found the consistency to be rather gritty. I wanted a creamier sauce and the addition of the mayo was just what I needed. I received raves from my guests that ate this sauce along with roast beef... a perfect compliment! I also made this with an addition of a teaspoon or so of tabasco - a wonderful zing! Try it!

It is what it is. I don't recommend using this for an entree but for an appetizer instead. Fried green tomatoes or possibly sweet potato fries as another reviewer mentioned. I tried a dab on a bite of steak and it killed the flavor of the steak, definitely took a wrong turn there, lol. This is perfect if you want to mask something.

A very good sauce. If I were using this for roast beef, I would probably leave it the way it is, but tonight I need something to top off grilled burgers so as another reviewer suggested I bumped up the horseradish and added some mayo. That did the trick!

Very easy and yummy. Exactly what I was looking for to serve with roast beef.

great sauce, make it as hot as you want by adding more horseradish. Tasted great on LTH's meatballs and as a dip for green peppers

We really liked this recipe. I didn't have dried onion so I minced about a tablespoon of fresh onion and it turned out great!

This was just what I was looking for to dip "Deep Fried Dill Pickles," recipe also from this site. It's a little light on the horseradish for our tastes, so I added more, ending up with nearly double the amount called for. I liked the addition of the lemon juice just to brighten the mellowness of the sour cream, but I didn't bother with the tiny bit of dried minced onion called for. Mmmmm, fried dill pickles with horseradish dipping sauce - not as a good as our favorite restaurant in Memphis but this was a fine substitute until we get back.

Delicious! I have served this with everything you can think of and everyone has raved each time. Thanks.
