    Simply Sue's Note:

    This is a great spicy marinade for Chicken, Pork, Beef or Shrimp. For Chicken or Pork, marinate for 1-2 hours, Beef for 2-4 hours and Shrimp 1/2 hour. May also be used as a baste for grilling or oven roasting. This was originally a patchwork from many other marinade recipes and has been 'messed' with to suite our tastes over the years. Note: If you want to add lime or lemon juice, do so ONLY during the last hour of marinating, to avoid a mushy meat texture.

      Great marinade. I realized I was out of horseradish after starting to mix ingredients and substuted stone ground Dijon mustard with great success.

      Tasted great! New to cooking but it was a very easy recipe to make and tasted fantastic. The only thing I would change is using a bit less horseradish. I like horseradish flavour but it has just a bit too much of a pickle-like flavour from it. Will definitely use again though!

      Wonderful! Just the right enough heat to satisfy but not overdoing it. I marinated some thin chicken breasts then grilled them on the Forman grill and made sandwiches with them...yummmm. I did use a meyer lemon because we have some in the yard instead of limes. I love horseradish and oregano so this was right up my alley. Definately one I will use again. Thank you.
