Danny found some thin steaks to flash fry on the CFC recently. Having been holed up in bed with a bug for a few days I fancied some lean meat – so one of these was a perfect introduction to something a bit more substantial than soup. We ate the steaks with low fat oven fries and a simple tossed salad.
Just before everything was about to be served I decided that I’d like a piquant sauce. Mustard or horseradish would be too strong so I mixed a little horseradish with mayonnaise and came up with this sauce. Simple, quick and absolutely delicious.
A quick foray on the Internet told me that this is quite a regular sauce in the United States. Until I made the sauce that went with Heston’s Boerewors burgers, I hadn’t considered mixing a sauce out of different ingredients that are considered sauces in their own right. So I’m going to have some fun experimenting with the contents of our larder from now on.
Quick horseradish and mayonnaise sauce
1 teaspoon of horseradish sauce (I used Colemans) or half a teaspoon of finely chopped fresh horseradish mixed with a teaspoon of double cream
2 tablespoons of mayonnaise
Pinch of smoked paprika to garnish
In a small bowl, mix the sauces well, sprinkle with a pinch of smoked paprika and serve.
The sauce was great as a dip for the oven chips and would be perfect for adding to tiny Yorkshire puds topped with a slice of rare beef for a party. It would also give a nice buzz to smoked salmon canapés.
Do you have any good sauce combinations that you’d like to share?
