Ingredient Substitutions
Any prepared horseradish can be used in place of the creamy horseradish.
For extra hearty flavor (but more sodium), use beef broth instead of water.
Microwave Option
To make the gravy in the microwave, combine the cornstarch, water, horseradish and slow cooker juices in a 4-cup microwave-safe measuring cup. Cook on HIGH for 3 to 4 minutes, or until the sauce boils and thickens slightly, stirring once halfway through the cooking time.
