    Hey Jude's Note:

    This is absolutely a wonderful, lazy Sunday afternoon recipe. The peanut sauce is to die for, you could use it for satays, etc. I order the shoulder roast from my butcher when we need (crave) this meal. Prep time does not include marinading time.

      I tried this today and the family loved it. The peanut sauce is a real winner. I was looking for a light peanut sauce that does not use coconut milk and this is just perfect. The meat was a bit burnt on the outside. I might wrap it in foil in future before leaving it in BBQ. But overall an excellent recipe. Thank you for sharing this.

      first of all, I'm a sucker for anything with a peanut sauce and this one if fabulous. It was perfect in terms of tart/sweet/savoury. The roast was tender and juicy and the time was right on the mark. Wonderful summer grill recipe. Thank you, Judy.
