~ For the Love of Arby's Original and Horsey Sauce ~

IMG_6664You say Arby's and I'll ask what time to meet you there.  It's no secret that I'm typically not a chain-restaurant kinda gal, but, I admit to loving an Arby's roast-beef sandwich or two drizzled with both their signature original sauce and horsey sauce.  While Arby's offers an array of 17 different sauces to pair with your favorite roast-beef, chicken, ham, turkey or fish sandwich, 'burger or salad, their original sauce and horsey sauce are my two personal favorites -- they're addicting. They're so addicting, most customers relish in the guilty peasure of pocketing a few packets of these lip-smacking sauces on their way out the door to take home -- and there's no shame in that.  Now I bring tidings of great joy -- we can buy 16-ounce bottles of both online!

440px-Arby's_logo.svgArby's is a fast food chain that was founded in 1964 in Boardman, Ohio, by two brothers, Forrest and Leroy Raffel, who wanted to sell roast-beef sandwiches (like they served in their Youngstown, Ohio restaurant) on a large scale.  The name Arby's is a portmanteau (a word blending the sounds and combining the meanings of two others, for example motel, from ‘motor’ and ‘hotel’, or, brunch, from ‘breakfast’ and ‘lunch’) of the Raffel brother's original initials.  Arby's signature sandwich is indeed the roast-beef sandwich, which is made with very-thinly-sliced roast beef, American cheese and Arby's original sauce served on a sesame seed bun. Their original sauce is a unique blend of ingredients that create a sweet, tangy and slightly-spicy ketchup-based condiment.  Arby's horsey sauce is a mayonnaise-based condiment that is based on spicy horseradish root and it's creamy with a subtle kick of heat.  Both condiments, drizzled separately or together are what give the Arby's roast-beef sandwich its signature appeal -- and yes, they were concocted to play well together on the same roast-beef sandwich or 'burger.

Try one or both on your next steak or cheesesteak:
