This is really good. I made it the first time and my family fell in love with it! I will definitely make this again!

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Oct. 21, 2012

I love the spices on this roast, but it's the horseradish sauce that accompanies it that keeps this recipe in my regular rotation. I, too, have overcooked the roast before, but realized I had a 3 pound one, so needed to adjust the time. Also, using a meat thermometer can help avoid overcooking.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jul. 3, 2012

The meat turned out tough and it took 3 hours to cook. The flavor was good but it was really too tough to enjoy. If I did decide to make it again I think I would cook it COVERED instead of un-covered like the recipe suggests.
