I finally tried it at home and it worked! I followed the recipe I learned at Dickinson's market with a one-pound top round roast that I bought at Fairway for about $8. I used soy sauce, fish sauce, garlic power, cayenne, soy and maybe a couple other spices but next time I would add more flavors and less water. Also, I need to find a better system of drying in the oven since it requires too much cleanup this way. A work in process that I will continue to share...don't you worry.
