Move over gravy and make way for a creamy horseradish sauce. To cut down on preparation time before the party, make this sauce the night before--it'll taste even better than when freshly made. Melt a dollop of it over a hot slice of beef and use as a dipping sauce for oven-roasted fries to accompany our prime rib of beef.
