Horseradish sauce (It. cren) is a savoury sauce eaten in the Veneto, Trentino and Austria to accompany boiled beef or roast meat.

During the Christmas holidays, and in particular for Christmas dinner, boiled beef is eaten everywhere. It is either served with horseradish sauce or the so-called pearà sauce from Veneto, made from bread and meat.
