I am a huge fan of horseradish. I use it in a lot of the recipes I make because I love the heat and the zing it adds. Silver Spring Foods is the world's largest grower and processor of horseradish and they are family-owned.
When they reached out and asked if I would like to partner with them to get the word out about their amazing products, of course, I said yes.
How to Make Pepper Steak with Horseradish Cream Sauce
The best thing about this recipe is how quickly it comes together.
For starters, you will need about 3-4 center-cut sirloin steaks. I like these because they resemble filet mignon, but they are much more affordable.
Now, using crushed peppercorns, coat both sides generously with the pepper.
Sear the steaks in a cast-iron skillet until they are done to your liking. I prefer my steaks medium, but your guests may want a little more done, so go for a medium-well and you should be just fine.
When they get done, they should look just like this —
While your steaks are resting, it's time to make the horseradish cream sauce.
How to Make Horseradish Cream Sauce
The recipe that I created uses greek yogurt, a little mayo, some dried chives, salt, pepper, lime, and of course, the Cream Style Horseradish from Silver Spring Foods.
I like this version because it is less chunky in my dips. And — it looks great when dripped over the beef slices that you will be serving to your guests.
Once all of the items are mixed together, set the sauce aside while you make the asparagus.
For this recipe, you are going to serve this to your friends and family on a food board. This way, they can serve themselves and enjoy an upscale meal while they watch the big game, or just hang out with you!
The asparagus is as simple as throwing in the same pan that you cooked the steaks. Add a tablespoon of butter, some extra salt, and pepper, and allow it all to saute for about 5-7 minutes. You do not want to overcook your asparagus. Toss it a couple of times while it is sauteing to get an even sear on the spears.
Some people may not be a fan of the horseradish cream sauce, so you can serve it in a pretty bowl on the board, along with the steak slices and the asparagus spears.
Horseradish is the perfect way to add zing to your entertaining or tailgating recipes and go from traditional to traditional with a twist.
