“I'm not a horseradish fan but my husband is, so when I found this recipe in a Betty Crocker cookbook I decided to give it a try. The horseradish completely mellows into this wonderful flavor that isn't hot or spicy and the gravy made with the juices is so yummy. No extra seasonings needed. The original recipe called for 1 tsp of black pepper but my family found it a bit too peppery so we cut back on that. Be sure to serve buns to clean up the plate with! We think this one is worth a try!”
