  1. In a pot of salted boiling water, poach the roast two hours in simmering water. Drain.


  1. Meanwhile, in a saucepan, bring all the ingredients to a boil. Reduce for 15 to 20 minutes or until the sauce thickens and only 250 ml (1 cup) is left.
  2. In a large bowl or in the same pot, coat the meat with the marinade. Set aside.
  3. Preheat the grill, setting the burners to high.
  4. Insert the roasting pin through the roast and install on the spit. Season with pepper. Place a roasting pan or a large old aluminum plate filled with water directly on the grill under the roast. Reduce the temperature of the grill to low heat. Roast for about 2 hours or until meat is tender. Baste meat with the marinade every 15 minutes. Let cool for 10 minutes.
  5. Remove the string, undo the roast into chunks or slice.
