A well constructed sauce can turn a good meal into a great one. The complimentary flavors of a great salsa to a taco, a hollandaise to eggs benedict or asparagus, or a port reduction to a grilled steak can “kick it up a notch” to make a meal memorable.

Since many of us will be cooking a corned beef brisket in celebration of St. Patrick’s Day on March 17, consider making this luxurious sauce to accompany your meal.

Horseradish cream sauce

3/4 cup heavy whipping cream

1/2 cup mayonnaise

1/2 cup prepared horseradish drained (not horseradish sauce!)

2 tablespoons Dijon mustard

1 teaspoon sugar

Kosher salt and freshly ground pepper to taste

Using an electric beater, whip the heavy cream in a bowl until it forms soft peaks. Combine the mayonnaise, horseradish and mustard in another bowl. Using a rubber spatula, gently fold in the whipping cream. Add the sugar, salt and pepper. Stir well, and transfer to a serving bowl.

This sauce, also, works quite well with roast beef or smoked fish.
