Roast Beef With Horseradish & Mustard Mayonnaise

I made this simple & delicious roast beef recently. there's really no recipe. just cook your beef roast ( I used a small topside roast) to your liking, bake potatoes alongside the meat if you want. serve the beef sliced on a bed of rocket & drizzle with the horseradish and mustard mayonnaise.

Horseradish & Mustard Mayonnaise

(appox measures)

small cup mayonnaise (homemade or bought)

1 tablespoon (or to taste) horseradish

2 tablespoons (or to taste) grainy mustard

mix together and use to drizzle over the roast beef!

I've always found the jarred horseradish to be too strong for my tastes but this topping could convert me...thank you!

Hi Dell

This looks really yummy, although my meat would be well done. I've never had horseradish but I have heard it goes great alongside beef, might have to try it soon.

I am not a fan of Roast beef.
When i first came to belgium i ate in my inlaws place for three months as i din't know cooking. She sometimes made roast beef and my eye used to pop out seeing the blood in the meat.
My hubby and daughter loves beef but they like it well done.

Peter thanks for stopping by. I'm the same with jarred horseradish so like this as it really does tone it down :-)

Rosie thank you, your so sweet :-)

The mayo sounds great with roast beef.
I have to admit, I prefer my meat a little more on the rare side!

Hey Dell. I don't do beef roasts too often but I'll have to give this a try next time I do. Sounds so simple and tasty.

Happy Valentine's day
