Do not deviate from this recipe. It may look complicated, but it is actually very easy! - NOTE: THE 2 HOURS OF MARINATING TIME IS NOT INCLUDED IN THE PREPARATION OR COOKING TIME.

The flavor of this roast wasn't what we were looking for. Even my kids, who usually devour pork and ANYTHING Asian, wouldn't touch it. Not a winner for us.
