Default Horseradish sauce

OK so I read the mayo thread, since the product in question was essentially mayo (Kraft horseradish sauce). However I didn't see the age question covered so.......

Saturday myself and MrsPimp go to a very well regarded rest. for steak. Long story short I ordered prime rib, rare of course. When my meat got to me I asked for horseradish and they brought me the aftermentioned product. I used it for a while (on french fries) for awhile before I realized that it was warm. So I'm checking the label to see if it requires refrigeration and I see the expire date


11/06/06

WTF! So what do the food safety gurus say about this? Safe or Not?

How dangerous is expired mayo type products?

First question, did they bring you the whole jar, how were you able to see an expiration date.
Was it previously opened?
I ask this because if it was a new jar, had just been opened, it was probably sitting in a store room and I wouldn't worry about the exp. date all that much,
except for the fact that it doesn't shine a real good light on the facility.

But after my preconceptions about mayo, it seems that it is alot safer than the product of many years ago, or homemade.
Alot of expiration dates have more to do with the manufacturers idea of best flavor by, as compared to unsafe to use after.
Just like your born on date on a can of Bud. It might not taste as good as they think it should after that date, but 20 years from now it's still a can of beer.

Or maybe was it served warm in a nice little compote cup?
No telling how it was handled, but I think a nice restaurant might serve the sauce slightly warmed as compared to ice cold for a nice piece of meat.

But nonetheless, if it wasn't sitting there bubbling like it was fermenting, I'm going to guess you're ok.

Are you???

Pimp, I was going to say the same as Joe. Processed bottled products like this are pretty stable (unlike real mayonaise) as everything is pasturized etc. Where you get in trouble is how it is handled. If new bacteria is introduced (through hands or dirty utensil, etc) and the product is left out (temp goes in the danger zone 60F+ where bacteria likes to grow) you can get into trouble. Attached is a chart I found that shows the expiration of products and there life after the expiration. My advise is smell before you taste.

I didn't get sick, I think.

It may have just been the 16oz. of prime rib that made me a little..........digestive. No trots and no vomiting.

Joe, the bottle was opened and half empty. It had been used. It was on the beverage serving area of the facility. So I saw the date and the refrigerate instructions on the label.

Cool links thanks.

Good to know that its probably safe.

Do you think the Health Dept. would have an issue with this?

Needless to say, I don't think I'll be going back there. If they serve expired mayo type products that are room temp, I'd hate to see the kitchen.

Thanks for the responses.

My take on this is to go another resturant next time. If they are using that stuff as horsey sauce for prime rib, they are taking short cuts elsewhere too. Out of date stuff is a major no-no. That stuff is great on samis but I would not want it on my PR. I prefere a homemade concoction.

Just for the record Bigdog, it was for me french fries. I know, I'm a weirdo. I'd rather use that than ketchup.

I like regular prepared horseradish for the meat, but didn't need any because they serve an awesome au jus (sp) that goes well with the meat.

Not weird at all. I love horseradish sauce with fries, onion rings, even mozeralla sticks and poppers.

I usually just mix up some mayo, sour cream, horseradish and worcteshire sauce.

With the bottled stuff though, there is no reason that any restaurant should be using something beyond its expired or "best by" date. Glad to hear that you sufferd no ill effects.

I don't even bother with the mayo type suace when I go out. I just ask for the ground Horseradish and mix it into the aujoir(sp?) juice and use that as my dip. Good on the fries and the meat. And I can make it as strong or as weak as I want.

Thanks for the clarification. Mayo on FF is very European my friend. Learned to love it that way while traveling in France and Amsterdam. Glad to hear that the au jus was awesome. I prefere that on my PR too mixed in with an occasional dip in the sauce.

In my book.... the only thing that touches prime rib is my teeth.. :)


Horsey sauce goes great on roast beef sammis.

Boars Head brand makes a really good prepared one.

I like a 50/50 mixture of sour cream and horseradish. Adjust it accordingly.

I like a good horseradish sauce, but I'm with the guys that like just plain ground horseradish. So hot it clears all known sinuses and 3 or 4 that science haven't discovered yet!!

I usually keep a bottle of fresh ground horseradish around to make cocktail sauce for fish and shrimp.

I too buy horse radish root, and grind my own, when available. The diffrence is astonding. As chad says, it will clear sinuses unknown to man.
