I used a bottom round roast and it turned out perfect. It has well balanced flavors that hold their own without taking over the meat. Leftovers were still tasty the next day. I hope to use what hasn't been nibbled away by family members, in the referenced stir-fry recipe following the directions. A repeat performance has already been requested.
