How to use Mustard Cream Sauce

There is no lack of ideas when it comes to how to use this savory sauce. It is flavorsome enough to pair with cuts of beef like tenderloin, fillet mignon and rib eye and a creamy mustard is always the perfect bedfellow for chicken. It’s perfect with salmon and pork or simply just drizzle over your veggies.

Mustard and Brandy Cream Sauce

The addition of brandy in this cream sauce adds a wonderful depth of flavor, you only need a little, but it elevates the sauce so much! If you don’t have brandy, cognac is a good substitute. I love how a sauce like this can so effortlessly elevate a home cooked meal to a restaurant quality feast!

A gluten-free sauce

This is a mustard cream sauce is a great recipe to have to have in your repertoire as it is gluten-free. A lot of sauces are made with flour and need to be avoided if you or your guests have sensitivities. Do check the ingredients on your mustard, the majority are gluten-free but a few do contain wheat flour or malt vinegar.
