(recipe, Matthew Card)

While this sauce is ideally suited for roast beef or steak, it also tastes great on ham sandwiches. Fresh horseradish can be found in the produce section of the supermarket, usually cut into short lengths. Scrape the peel off the root with a sharp paring knife or vegetable peeler.


  1. 2 tsp. packed fresh thyme
  2. 2 garlic cloves, peeled and crushed
  3. ½ tsp. table salt
  4. 1 Tbsp. white wine vinegar
  5. ¼ cup finely grated fresh horseradish
  6. 1¼ tsp. sugar
  7. 1 cup sour cream
  8. 2 Tbsp. heavy cream
  9. Freshly ground black pepper


  1. Finely mince thyme and garlic with ½ teaspoon salt until it is reduced to a smooth paste. Transfer to small mixing bowl, stir in vinegar, and allow to sit for 10 minutes.
  2. Stir in horseradish, sugar, sour cream, and heavy cream; adjust seasoning with salt and pepper. Cover bowl and refrigerate at least 4 hours before serving.
