I enjoy a good pot roast, but I was tired of the same old I started experimenting. Cooking the beef in horseradish sauce gives it a tangy flavor. Even my 6 and 3-year-olds love this roast with its tender veggies and gravy.

"made this for dinner last night and thought it was pretty tasty. The horseradish gave the meat and vegetables a little different twist from your average roast and brown gravy."

"This is terrible way too much vinegar. Beef is too expensive to do this to it."

"Fixed for my family last night. They absolutely loved it. I did add 1/2 cup more water, for more gravy. Had only extra hot horseradish, so used only 1 fat tablespoon. Should have used more. Try this, you won't be disapointed."

"The roast was very tender but I didn't like the taste of the horseradish sauce in it! I will make it again but with the exception of using the horseradish sauce."
