1. In large skillet, heat vegetable oil over medium-high heat. Sprinkle raw roast with paprika. Brown roast in hot oil.
2. Mix applesauce, brown sugar, Worcestershire, water and onion soup mix in a bowl and then place in a high-walled roasting dish.
3. Lower browned roast into roasting dish and turn to coat. Cover the dish with a lid or foil. Bake for 4 hours in a 350º oven.
4. Before serving, rest the roast in the sauce off the heat for 15 minutes. During this time, skim off any excess fat.
To serve, present the roast in a shallow serving dish surrounded by the sauce. Slice the tie strings with kitchen shears. The roast will fall apart into serving size pieces.
