Brisket with Cranberry-Horseradish Gravy Recipe

"Beyond Delicious! I made this for Sunday dinner and everyone loved it. Simple to put together in the morning and then enjoy later. Wasn't sure how the horseradish was going to go over but my family couldn't get enough. Very little left over which was eaten the next night.

Trying to rate five stars but only four are appearing."
