Holiday meals and special occasions often call for roast beef or ham. Here are sauces that perfectly compliment each. (And Kyle has added a tip that makes the Holiday Ham a breeze!)
Perfect Horseradish Cream for Beef:
8oz (1 C) Sour Cream
Scant 1 C (6-7oz) Mayonnaise
1 T fresh lemon juice
1 T Worcestershire
8oz Fresh Ground Prepared Horseradish (found in refrigerated section of grocery store; do not purchase a pre-prepared sauce from condiment aisle)
Fold together ingredients and chill. Keeps for 7-10 days
1 12 oz can Coke
1 Cup brown sugar
1 8oz can crushed pineapple, drained
1 t ground cinnamon
1/2 t ground clove
In saucepan, whisk coke and brown sugar together. Bring to simmer - will resemble a syrup. Stir in crushed pineapple and simmer for a minute or two. Remove from heat and stir in cinnamon and clove. Set aside. Spoon over ham before placing in oven and during last 30 minutes of cooking.
(Hint: purchase a pre-cooked, pre-sliced ham. Remember that all you are doing is re-heating the ham. Before placing in oven, ooze the sauce between the slices. Just before serving, ooze a bit more over the ham, and serve the remaining sauce to the side).
