"I'm not sure what the previous commenter is talking about. I have made this half a dozen times already and EVERYONE loves it. The meat always comes out juicy, tender and nicely seasoned. The sauce is simple and has a nice horseradish kick to it. All in all, you won't be disappointed. TRUST ME."

"This is the only thing I have ever made out of a taste of home magazine that I literally could not eat. My friend also spat hers out. And I like pickled things. I ended up just picking my beef out and eating it was so bad. And the sauce about made me gag."
