Do try out my yummy sweet mustard sauce with mayo, cream and capers! This is hands down the perfect companion for your next pork roast or roast ham dinner…
I made this easy sweet mustard sauce recipe a couple of days ago.
We had a large stuffed pork roast for dinner.
But because it is only the two of us here at home, at the end of our dinner I had to put half of it back in the fridge of course.

But no worries, I did that on purpose!
I sliced the cold roast up a day later but I felt like adding a nice and creamy sauce to it to make it even more appetizing.
Easy Sweet Mustard Sauce for Pork & Ham
This sauce is great.
You can serve it over freshly baked pork roast or cold leftover pork slices just like I did.
It is totally up to you.
There is one great advantage to a freshly baked roast though.
Because you can add those lovely hot and flavorful pork juices to this sauce the moment the roast comes out of the oven.
I am telling you when you have to add them in this recipe below.
I made a sauce from scratch without the juices but we were absolutely not disappointed, on the contrary.
Other than that this sweet mustard sauce is pretty simple.
Sweet mustard and cream are the main ingredients.
Can you find sweet mustard where you live? It is a type of mustard that you find in Germany.
It is a popular breakfast sauce for boiled white sausages (Weisswurst), cold cuts and smoked salmon.
If you can’t find the sweet mustard, then you can add some honey and a grainy Dijon mustard to the cream instead.

Easy Sweet Mustard Sauce Recipe for Pork Roast
Try my yummy sweet mustard sauce with mayo, cream and capers! Hands down the perfect companion for a pork roast or roast ham dinner...
- 3 tbsp sweet mustard
- 3 tbsp mayonnaise
- 3 tbsp cream
- 3 tbsp onion chopped
- 2 tbsp capers in brine
- 1 large garlic clove chopped
- 2 cups beef stock (480 ml)
- 1 tbsp unsalted butter
- 2 bay leaves
- 1 sprig fresh rosemary
- 3 tbsp fresh parsley chopped
- 1 tsp curcuma powder (optional)
Add the butter, bay leaves, rosemary and the chopped garlic and onion to a saucepan and place it over medium heat.
Fry the onion and garlic for 5 minutes. Then pour in the beef stock (and the remaining juices from the pork roast if you are serving this sauce with a freshly baked roast).
Bring the ingredients to a boil, then turn the heat lower and simmer it for 5 minutes. The stock should have reduced by almost half. Then take the pan off the heat and remove the bay leaves and rosemary. Let the stock cool and mix or blend it until smooth.
Place the sauce base back over high heat. Let it reduce by half again until you get the impression that the liquid starts to thicken a little. Turn the heat off and stir in the sweet mustard.
Also add the mayonnaise, curcuma (optional) and cream. Stir well and add the chopped parsley and capers in the end.
- Check the seasoning of the sauce and add extra pepper or salt to taste if necessary. Add more cream if you want the sauce to be runnier. Pour it in a sauce jug and serve with the sliced (cold) pork roast.
