I used this recipe for as a crust for a whole beef tenderloin and it was amazing!!! I seared the roast first then coated with the ingredients and baked. Fabulous blend of flavors!

I thought after looking over the ingredients that this was going to turn out great. I was wrong. I think this is one of those "you either love it or hate it" recipes. I rubbed the steaks and let them marinate then grilled them - the flavor combination left little to be desired.

This turned out great, loads of flavor and tender. May cook covered next time. Delish!

Wonderful, tender and great flavor! The horseradish taste is very minimal, but the combination of all the ingredients makes a delicious taste overall.

This was great! I prepped the steaks the night before and it was so easy to just throw in the oven the next day. Steaks were tender and very flavorful. Husband loved it! I used a roasting rack in a baking dish, but will try grilling these next time.

So delicious for such a quick recipe! The steaks came out wonderfully tender and the flavor is perfect after marinating overnight. My husband loved them-- used wasabi b/c we had that (same difference).

Not really topped with, but infused with Horseradish and Dijon... Found this to have good flavor. Next time I will top with the marinade that I've set aside just for this purpose... I did grill this rather than roast in the oven..., a beautiful piece of beef deserves more respect that hiding in an oven for 30 to 60 minutes... British / English style. A good recipe when some cooking technique changes are applied to fit the American palate.

Lots of flavor. Only let it marinade for an hour though, would like to try marinading longer
