Horseradish: The Condiment of the Gods

A couple of nights ago my wonderful girlfriend, Chef Megan, prepared a delicious dinner for us of seasoned roast beef done slowly cooked in a red wine jus.  The result was pure deliciousness when coupled with her homemade mashed potatoes.  However, it was the little something extra that I picked up at the grocery store that really put it over the top for me.  Horseradish sauce.  I made sure I paid a little more and bought one that specifically said it contained fresh horseradish.  It was totally worth it.  No other condiment I can think of pairs as well as does horseradish with roast beef.  It has that perfect amount of heat that clears the sinuses yet stops short of setting your mouth and tongue on fire.  If you don't like it I have to say I feel a bit sorry for you.  You're missing out on one of the truly great culinary experiences.  Go out and get some any way you can weather it be Arby's Horsey sauce or fresh grated in the St Elmo's shrimp cocktail.  I wish I had some right now.  What are some of your favorite food-condiment pairings?

Even better is their Smoky Horseradish Sauce. The only place I've seen it is at Safeway on the corner of 56th and Illinois streets.

I'll have to try that if I can find it somewhere here in the Northern suburbs.

I like ham and horseradish a lot. I always forget about it, but a very fine condiment indeed.
