2 - 4 pounds chuck roast (chuck cut will result in fall-apart-tender roast)
1/2 cup soy sauce
Trim roast (if desired) and rub garlic powder and pepper into both sides. Pour soy sauce over each side. You can leave it to marinate in the fridge for a while or stick it straight in the pot. When ready to cook, place roast in a medium-large pot with 1/2 inch of water in the bottom. Cover and bring to a boil on medium, medium-low heat (may take a while), then simmer slowly for about 4 more hours.
