In this recipe, the marinade is a healthy start, and the post-grilling sauce is an added bonus. Horseradish gives it a sinus-clearing, possibly infection-preventing zing. Heart Healthy Living recommends starting with a flank steak and marinating it in the following mixture:

2 tablespoons Dijon mustard

3 tablespoons fresh lemon juice

4 1/2 teaspoons reduced-sodium Worcestershire sauce

Marinate for a good six hours before you cook it up on the grill. In the meantime, get the sauce going. Mix together:

1 tablespoons Dijon mustard

1/3 cup fat-free sour cream, mayonnaise or salad dressing

1 green onion, finely chopped

1 to 2 teaspoons (according to taste) prepared horseradish

To get all the available flavor, serve the sauce at room temperature (or close to it).

Dip some steak in the horseradish-y goodness, breathe freely and enjoy!

Next on the list, it's one of the most popular cooking ingredients out there, but not everybody knows you can (and really should) pair it with steakā€¦
