Tiger Dill Sauce (Horseradish Sauce)

by Alli

Tiger Dill Sauce is a creamy sauce made with prepared horseradish. This sauce is a wonderful accompaniment to prime rib, steak, or pork. I also serve this sauce with grilled salmon. 

Back in the day, I always ordered the Tiger Dill Sauce to go with my steak at Outback Steakhouse. I don’t think it’s on the menu these days so I recreated it to have on hand when my husband grills steaks.

Actually, I love this stuff and it’s perfect for dipping fish, chicken, or beef. A roast beef sandwich slathered with Tiger Dill Sauce is another way to enjoy this delicious sauce. 

Tiger Dill Sauce Ingredients (printable recipe down below)

This is one of the easiest sauces you’ll ever make. You’ll need the following ingredients:

  • sour cream
  • prepared horseradish
  • sugar or sugar substitute (optional)
  • dill weed OR fresh dill
  • salt and pepper to taste

What is prepared horseradish?

Make sure you purchase prepared horseradish and not horseradish sauce. Prepared horseradish is grated horseradish with vinegar, sugar, and salt. Horseradish sauce is combined with sour cream, mayonnaise, or heavy cream. For this recipe, you want to stick with prepared horseradish.

How long will homemade Tiger Dill Sauce (horseradish sauce) last in the fridge?

Horseradish sauce needs to be stored in the refrigerator and will keep for up to two weeks. 

Variation Of Tiger Dill Sauce

If I’m running low on sour cream, I’ll combine 1/2 cup mayonnaise and 1/2 cup sour cream to make this sauce. I don’t add mayonnaise if I have enough sour cream on hand.

I’m a sour cream lover and I always use Daisy Sour Cream. It’s my favorite. 

Controlling The Hotness of Tiger Dill Sauce

I tend to like my tiger dill sauce on the spicy side. If I don’t feel the burn in my sinuses it’s not spicy enough. Feel free to cut back on the prepared horseradish if you don’t like a lot of heat. 

If you like a big bite, feel free to add even more than 1/4 cup of prepared horseradish. 

Yield: 6-8 servings
