Homemade horseradish sauce with dumplings or Tafelspitz

This homemade hot horseradish sauce has really neat "steam" and just tastes super delicious to boiled beef or meatballs (recipe below).


  • 1 stick of horseradish
  • 100g butter
  • 100g of flour
  • 1/2 l of milk
  • 1/2 l meat or vegetable broth
  • sugar
  • possibly sweet cream


Peel the horseradish, then

EITHER rub the rod with the grater by hand (and plenty of tear * g *) in the finest possible grated

OR (if device available): cut into smaller pieces and finely chop / grind with a suitable food processor.

Heat the butter in a medium saucepan and let it frothy but not brown. Gradually whisk the flour into the butter with a whisk until it starts to form lumps. Douse with the meat or vegetable stock with stirring.

Then add the milk, a good pinch of sugar and the grated horseradish and stir well with the whisk. Simmer at medium to low heat for about 15 minutes, stirring constantly.

If necessary, you can adjust the consistency / consistency of the sauce with cream (or milk) and / or blender bar at will.

Quantities are enough in any case for 4-6 people, leftovers can easily freeze.

And here is the recipe for the meatballs / meatballs

  • 2.5 l meat or vegetable broth
  • 750g mixed minced meat
  • 2-3 stale rolls (depending on size)
  • 2-3 eggs (depending on size)
  • bread crumbs
  • 1 tsp salt
  • pepper
  • 1 bunch of fresh parsley


Heat the meat or vegetable broth (boil briefly, then let it boil). While soaking the rolls, then express very well and finely chop.

Chop the parsley finely and mix with the minced meat and all other ingredients to a smooth, rather firm dough (possibly add breadcrumbs).

From then small dumplings (at your discretion, size roughly between golf and tennis ball) shape and in the boiling (may not cook!) Broth and on a low heat with a lid for about 20-25 minutes even let.

Pour the finished meatballs into the warm horseradish sauce and let them pass through briefly, serve with boiled potatoes or broad butter noodles (and if it's too hot, as "Antidote" a dollop of cranberries) - Bon Appetit :-)
