    Excellent! Must admit, at first I wondered about the necessity to drain the horseradish…gosh, was I surprised at the amount of liquid extracted! Still pondering what it could have been used for had I saved it. Addition to Bloody Mary? Zip up any smooth gravy/sauce? Au jus? Hmmmm.

    I liked this very much. It tasted more like cream cheese than horseradish though. I’ll make this again using more horseradish and less cream cheese. Update-I increased the horseradish to 3 tablespoons, decreased the cream cheese to 6 oz, and increased the stars to 5. Thanks again.

    A really good make-ahead appetizer. I added an extra tablespoon of horseradish, just because I love the stuff, and I ended up using 3 tortillas. Even MIL who’s not overly fond of beef liked these.

    Excellent! I wouldn’t change a thing. However, I ended up using 3 tortillas. It’s very important to not place the roast beef close to the edge because your rolls won’t “seal” if you place it clear to the edge.

    Took this to work and served it to some “picky” people….I left the room for a few minutes and it was gone!!! A definite hit! Very easy to make.

    Dorothy, thank you for posting this wonderful recipe! I love things I can do ahead; I made these for a dinner party the day before the event. I also agree that one more tablespoon of horseradish (YES, be sure to drain it!) would have been more to our taste. There weren’t any left on the plate; our daughter and son-in-law thought they were wonderful. Be sure to roll them tightly.

    Bert brought these to a retirement party for one of our fellow ladies we work with and they were amazing. Wonderful flavour combination. Wouldn’t change a thing!

    An absolutely wonderful appetizer. I doubled the recipe and took it to a wedding reception and that was the last I saw of them. Outstanding flavor.

    Easy, fast and do ahead. . . everything I like! I added some Dijon mustard as well and a little more horseradish than called for. Worked very well. I bet these would freeze well too?? Thanks again Dorothy.

    Excellant recipe. I loved the make ahead advantage, and that it was really simple to put together. I added extra horseradish, but otherwise followed the recipe to the letter. Really great little appy for a small get together.
