The aroma of this meat baking is a social gathering. I knew I wanted this recipe from my girlfriend even before I tasted it! This is a dish you can prepare then forget about for a few hours! Serve it with any salad of your choice, crusty rolls, whatever cool drink you prefer and you've got it made! The leftovers are great too...if there are any! If you can't find ketjap manis see Ketjap Manis.

Oh My Lord! This roast is awesome! I followed the directions to the letter, and it came out fork-tender, and all dolled up with the tangy, zingie bar-b-q sauce that really made the recipe! Made this for our Silent Cricket cook-a-thon, and am I ever glad I did! An absolute 5* winner! Laudee

This is a very good roast but unfortunately my family didn't like it. DH didn't like the BBQ sauce - he would have prefered regular gravy. Considering how much trouble I went through to make it (Buying special ingredients, making the BBQ sauce and the ketjap manis...) I probably won't bother making this again.

I used regular soy sauce since it is what I had on hand. If it made much difference in the taste, we will never miss it because this roast turned out absolutely delicious. I sliced the meat thinly and we made barbequed beef sandwiches with the sauce poured on top. The sweet, hickory flavor of the sauce is barbeque at it's best! Very good recipe that we will make again.
