Horsey Sauce Recipe (Arby’s Copycat)

Horsey Sauce Recipe (Arby’s Copycat)

Arby’s horsey sauce is one of those condiments that taste delicious when paired with a roast beef sandwich. It’s one of my favorite foods from their menu. Its creamy and tangy flavors taste amazing with the savory and tender beef. I keep coming back to that delectable dish from Arby’s, and their horsey sauce makes it a hundred times better. That’s why I decided to recreate my own Arby’s horsey sauce at home so that I can also enjoy it as a dipping sauce, and combine it with other dishes.

This creamy and zesty sauce is made of simple ingredients such as mayonnaise and creamy horseradish sauce, sugar, and salt. It’s also really quick and easy to make. Just mix all of these ingredients together, and then you’re done. This Arby’s sauce is basically a mayonnaise-based sauce with added horseradish for that delicious spiciness. These two creamy ingredients make up the flavor of the whole dish, and also gives the sauce a silky smooth texture.

Aside from that, creamed horseradish has a mild flavor. It’s less concentrated since it’s made from prepared horseradish and vinegar, a neutralizing ingredient. This results in a not so strong and spicy horseradish sauce. You can easily find creamed horseradish in any grocery store. But, if you prefer, you can also use fresh horseradish as a substitute to give it that distinct spicy tanginess. Add in about two tablespoons at most into the mix and combine well. You can also add a bit of ranch dressing into the mix so it’s just the right amount of subtle sweet and tang.

I recommend using a blender or food processor for this horsey sauce recipe to really achieve that creamy consistency. Once you’re done mixing, transfer to a sealed jar or container. It’s best to let the horsey sauce settle in first before serving or using it so that the flavors can really blend together. The sauce can last for up to a week in the refrigerator, and will taste even better as it sits.

I had a great time adding this homemade horsey sauce to my sandwiches and burgers, and even using it as a dipping sauce for my french fries. I also added it to my chicken quesadillas which tasted amazing, by the way. I don’t need to find the nearest Arby’s just to enjoy this sauce which takes my food to the next level.
