Horseradish Pot Roast

We tasted a dish similar to this while at a horseradish festival in Illinois. I like to serve it over noodles. The recipe is easily adaptable for stovetop cooking, too. —Barbara White, Katy, Texas

      Total fail for me. I followed instructions to a T. I at least ate my serving. My husband ate half of his. Threw the rest in the trash. Not much horseradish flavor at all. And we love horseradish! Tried to add a little more horseradish to what I had on my plate and that didnt help. Sorry. Wont be fixing this again.

      I doubled the pepper and tripled the garlic. We loved it.

      Made this for supper last night and it was delicious! I made as directed except I didn't add the sugar. I used creamy horseradish sauce. The horseradish sauce gave it a nice zesty taste but was not overpowering.
