Just a whiff can bring tears to your eyes, but fear not, they’ll be gone in a second. Such is the addictive power of horseradish. It is intensely spicy when it hits your tongue sending peppery fumes up your nose, but in an instant, just like it’s Japanese counterpart wasabi, the heat vanishes leaving you wanting another hit.
If you’ve chosen a richer cut, grain fed, or wagyu or maybe dry aged, then you might find yourself wishing for a little horseradish to cut through it all. The kind folks at Bornibus have minced the freshest horseradish and preserved it in a jar for you so it’ll be there ready to be whipped out when the steak’s done.
