This sauce is great over venison, barbequed hamburgers and hot dogs. Cooked in the oven the beef brisket becomes juicy and tender. The secret's in the sauce. The sweetness of brown sugar and bite of horseradish enhance the flavour of the beef. This is great for birthdays, holidays, potlucks, dinner parties and camping trips. Make it ahead of time and freeze it. All you have to do is reheat for a main course that looks as good as it tastes.
