A favorite accompaniment to roast beef, horseradish is the thick, gnarled root of a plant in the cabbage family. It has a refreshing, spicy bite. Prepared horseradish has already been grated and is mixed with white vinegar or beet juice and packed in jars. For this recipe, use horseradish packed in white vinegar.
