The Garlic Farm - Horseradish Mustard with Garlic

In the past I used to hate putting garlic in my cooking. That and onions. It's ingredients with a distinct flavour and smell I rather not have in my mouth while I enjoyed my meals. But the older I get, the more I was willing to experiment with my cooking by using different ingredients. I noticed the difference they make to a dish - more fragrant and tasty.

So when I was offered to try The Garlic Farm's Horseradish Mustard with Garlic condiment, which is suppose to go well with beef according to their PR, I was happy to give it a try. I think as long as you say the word beef, I'll most likely say yes to anything!

About the product:
  • £2.90 (100g)
  • Old Isle of Wright Condiment to go with beef and smoked fish
  • Made by the UK's renowned garlic specialist The Garlic Farm
  • One of The Garlic Farm's most popular products

My review:

When I was offered the sauce to try, the first thing that came to my mind is that I can try marinate my steak with it. Hubby disapproved and had his sauce on the side. To me it's a tad bitter to eat as a condiment, but I was never too keen in mustard apart from those in American style burgers. (Why does those mustard taste different than English or French?)

However, I actually enjoyed the sauce as a marinate. Not sure whether it was the steak or the sauce, it was succulent and tender and really delicious! Even hubby was surprised with the result! I'll definitely have my steak cooked this way again. 

Disclosure: I was given a jar of mustard to try and review; all opinions are honest and my own
