What a great meal! I started this too late, so I used a Dutch oven. Baked the roast at 325 with the broth mixture and onions for 3 hours. I did add an extra 1/2 water with a beef bouillon cube, 1/2 tsp garlic powder, and only used 2 TBSP horseradish sauce (6-8 TBSP was just too much for me). Bumped up temperature to 350 and added the potatoes and carrots and cooked for another hour. After removing the roast, potatoes and carrots, I put the Dutch oven on the stove-top on medium, added another 1/2 to 3/4 cup water, and then added the cornstarch mixture to thicken. There was just enough horseradish flavor with the reduced amount to taste it without overwhelming the dish. Very unique roast recipe with the red wine vinegar, Worcestershire sauce and horseradish flavors all coming through and a fall-apart roast. I will make this again.

While I enjoyed this dish I found the vinegar to be strong and the meat a bit dry. I sliced the roast into three pieces, browned them as directed and put into the oven at the high temperature for 20 minutes, then lowered the temperature and roasted the meast for almost three hours. OMG, it was so tender!!

Amazing! I did tweak it a little. I did double it (the sauce mixture) instead of water I used beef broth, I also salt and peppered the roast after searing it. I also added mushrooms the last half hour when you add the cornstarch. My family loved it!

I don't know if it was the horseradish sauce or the wine vinegar but the gravy tasted like sourkrout >I can eat it but not enjoy it. I expected savory and got sour.

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.
