- Begin by browning the meat. There are 2 ways in which you can do this. One way is to brown it in the pan and the other way is in the oven. The first way is quicker.
- If you choose to brown your meat in the oven, begin by preheating the oven to a very high heat.
- Preheat the oven at 230* C (446* F) Fan.
- Prepare the meat by drizzling with a small amount of olive oil and season with salt and pepper.
- Line a baking pan with a large sheet of aluminum foil. Place the meat in the baking pan.
- Roast for 20 minutes.
- Remove from oven and lower the oven temperature to 160* C (320* F).
- Tear 2 more pieces of aluminum foil and set aside.
- Chop the garlic into 3-4 pieces. Pierce the meat and stuff with garlic pieces. Be careful while doing this because the meat is still very hot.
- Add the sprigs of rosemary and wrap the meat in the aluminum foil that is in the pan. Wrap the package of meat in one of the sheets of aluminum foil you set aside, along with the baking pan.
- Use the other sheet of foil to wrap everything securely. Place back in the oven being careful not to burn yourselves.
- Roast for 2 hours.
- While the meat is roasting, prepare the vegetables. Sauté them in a pan over high heat, until they turn golden on all sides.
- Remove baking pan from oven. Turn the heat up to 200* C (390* F). Open the foil and remove the rosemary. Add the stock and vegetables. Roast for another 15 minutes.
