Wash and pat the meat dry; put it in a roasting pan with the garlic clove, dot it with bits of lard and sprinkle it with oil, lay a sprig or two of rosemary on it, season with salt and pepper, and roast it in a hot oven (200-210C) until the meat is browned. This will take from 1 hour 15 minutes to 1 hour 30 minutes.

If you would like roasted vegetables, add the onions, halved, and the potatoes after the meat has roasted for 15 minutes.
