    Delightful with flavors that make a definite presence! Easy and relatively quick to make on a work day. I doubled the amount of chili sauce to cover both sides. It did work just fine to cook the meat under the broiler. I did not use the horseradish mixture--it really doesn't need it but use it if you like that flavor.

    Huge hit with our family!! I've never cooked a steak under the broiler and was nervous but it turned out great! Cooked perfectly and had great flavor.

    Delicious! I made this once & my husband asked to have it again within just a few weeks. Great way to use peppers from the garden.
