Reviews for Sunday Boiled Dinner
"I have made this several times (each time with ham) and it never ceases to be great. I use the Horseradish Sauce (I found it in the Complete Guide to Cooking by Taste of Home) every time. Thank you so much."
"Wow! I was making it and thinking it was so simple and quick. I was beginning to worry that it would not be good. Never had rutabaga before and missed the part about my pork being smoked. So I added some liquid smoke. Very good. Ate it with the horseradish and that gave it a wonderful flavor."
