I liked the flavor a lot. I used panko crumbs. Next time I think I'll cook it totally in the oven to get the crust more crisp. Mine turned out very similar to the first three pictures here and I would like it more crisp. Thanks for posting!! Update 9/1/09: Made it as I described above 18-20 minutes total and hit it with the broiler for 2 minutes halfway thru and for the last 2 minutes. PERFECT!!!
Excellent! I made this using a 350g pork tenderloin. I marinated the tenderloin as described, then molded the horseradish crust around it (do not pre-brown the tenderloin); bake at 375° for about 45 minutes (internal temp of 160°F); allow to set 10 minutes after removing from oven to slice; sprinkle any loose crust over slices. Remains juicy and tender. Thanks for posting!
I loved the flavor the marinade imparted and the horseradish crust. I marinated the chops for several hours. My chops were not as thick as recommended, so I adjusted the cook & baking time and the result was amazing & super moist! Be sure your horseradish is fresh, mine was not very strong. I combined the crust ingredients in the food processor. Used 1/2 C of butter, may use more next time & less bread crumbs. I had more than enough crust and saved the extra and froze it in a log shape for further use. Thanks for sharing this gem.
