Cook, basting every 1/2 hour with remaining marinade, for 3 to 3 1/2 hours or until meat thermometer registers 175°.

Stir until smooth, then add remaining marinade and cook over medium heat, stirring constantly, until clear and thickened.
When ready to serve, pass sauce to spoon over cooked sliced meat.
