Originally from Cooking Light, this recipe is wonderful. Great for a special occasion! Prep time does not include time it takes to roast the garlic.

Thanks for this recipe!!! It was easy to make and tasted great.I have a DH that loves horseradish,so I went looking for a different way to fix beef roast,I came across this recipe. The horseradish mellows out some when cooked on the beef and tastes good with the garlic. Thanks again....
