Horseradish Sauce – A Super Addition to Any Low Carb Keto Christmas Roast Beef

Big Christmas dinners are often synonymous with a big cut of standing rib or luscious Christmas roast beef with all the trimmings. This year, make health low carb keto “trimmings,” or side dishes like Fluffy Chix Cook’s spicy Horseradish Sauce. It’s sugar and gluten/soy free and has no hidden chemicals or fake flavors and is a perfect addition in your low carb keto lifestyle.

When you mention Christmas “roast beast” to the Fluffys, our minds immediately jump to, “Yeah, but what will you serve with it?” Now, you might know the roast beast by its non-Whoville name, Standing Rib Roast or even prime rib, but we all know when we talk about a hearty and posh Christmas dinner of rare roast beef, we’re talking about “all the trimmings.” We are going to expect au jus, horseradish sauce, mushrooms in sherry butter and Yorkshire pudding. Yes, we said Yorkshire pudding! And even though we live a low carb keto WOE (way of eating), we make low carb Yorkshire Pudding that will make you cry the Hallelujah Chorus! (And we will bring you that recipe next week, so stay tuned!) Chances are we will also expect perfectly whipped mashed cauliflower and/or Pan Roasted Brussels Sprout With Garlic Chips.

This is a HUGE meal, folks! Although it doesn’t get as much air-time as Thanksgiving, this meal is more important to the Fluffys than Thanksgiving could ever hope. We eat our big feast meal on Christmas Eve after services. That reserves Christmas dinner for Texas Chili and Tamales (for the carb monkeys in the fam) or Texas Chili Dogs (totally low carb legal).

Making a huge meal can be a hassle for the cook—so be sure to kiss him or her! And offer a glass of dry red wine if given the chance! But there are time-saving steps that can be done ahead of the big event that will save you headaches and swollen ankles the day of celebration. Many of the side dishes can be prepped ahead, and some can be made ahead by 1-2 days. Horseradish Sauce is one of the troopers in the side dish brigade. It holds beautifully, when made ahead.

We prefer fresh horseradish, because every other brand we’ve found has either added sugar or parsnips, or soy. Oy veh! But if you MUST use prepared horseradish use Boar’s Head brand of prepared horseradish, because it’s predictable; it won’t be too hot nor too mild (as sometimes happens when using fresh horseradish root). It’s widely available, but the down side is, it DOES have a tiny bit of sugar in it and a tiny bit of canola oil–both ingredients are ICKY in a low carb lifestyle. It is also soy free, so at least there is that bonus! Not as widely available, but much cleaner ingredients is Gold’s.  Gold’s Prepared Horseradish  is very clean, but sadly, isn’t available in Texas. We love the “HOT” version. Hair singer! hehe. If your market carries it, you’ll find it next to the eggs and sour cream in the dairy case. (Note to self: place order for Gold’s Hot Prepared Horseradish from Amazon, STAT!)

Fluffy Chix Horseradish Sauce is easy to make. The sauce is a no-brainer, an Easy Button recipe. Throw everything into a bowl, mixy, mixy, and store. Bam. Done!

And it’s great with leftovers! But don’t underestimate what dreamy low carb keto Horseradish Sauce brings to the table. Seriously low carb, it’s bold with a tangy flavor and a bit of heat at the end. It works great with rare roast beef, warm from the oven, or as a lucky leftover, used in wraps and salads. And it’s a perfect accompaniment to savory au jus. Dip the bite of moist beef into the jus, then place a little dab of Horseradish Sauce on top. Now be careful to get it from plate to mouth without dripping that unctuous Christmas dinner goodness down the front of your ugly Christmas sweater from Aunt Edith. Perfection. Be sure to make enough for leftovers.
