Tangy Horseradish Tomato Sauce For Meatballs

"I think this is a tangy, tasty, easy go-to sauce when I need it to be quick and dumped into the slow cooker. I used a recipe similar to this but it only had three of the ingredients and I added more items to make it flavorful and to our liking...hope you do too! We think it goes well with our favorite meatball recipe or as a sauce for our favorite meatloaf."

i am the submitter of this recipe and i recommend that u don't add the water or if it is too thick for your liking add water per your judgement...enjoy the recipe...thanks


Totally unique recipe. Really enjoyed this zesty sauce for a change of pace. I was expecting it to be fairly spicy hot but it was not. Loved the subtle flavor of the horseradish. I made as written, but as the submitter told me that the original recipe did not call for the water, I left it out. I am glad I did as it would have been far too thin had I added it. It makes a lot, yielding about 8 cups of sauce for me. I just put the extra in the freezer for another meal. Looking forward to it! Thanks, smitty.


The slow cooker made it a breeze, no standing round stirring the pot. Great flavor of the sauce.
