Sour Cream Herb Sauce

Sour Cream Herb Sauce

Yum! You need something new, fresh and unique. You want your husband and your children to say wow mum, that’s really goooood! Can I have some more veggies?

Sour Cream Herb Sauce was a BOOM! 


The way I decided to serve this sauce was sautéing the fresh boiled Spring Beans and the leftover beef that I had the day before. I poured the sauce over the veggies and meat and then stirred for about 2 minutes until the beans and the beef were coated.

It’s a simple sauce that takes about 10 minutes to prepare. To this sauce I add homemade Mayonnaise and because I didn’t have buttermilk I make sour milk. Combine 1 ½ tbsp lemon juice with enough milk to make ¼ cup total liquid, let sit for 5 minutes before using. The goal is to make the milk curdle.
