  1. Preheat the oven to 140ºC
  2. Put salt on both sides of the piece on the meat with your hands, also put sprigs of fresh rosemary on both sides. With a sharp knife, make very superficial diamond-shaped cuts and place a clove in each diamond.
  3. Put the piece of meat in the Monix Magma 32 cm low saucepan and set aside.
  4. To make the sauce we are going to make a reduction with all the ingredients. Put the Martini, the peppercorns, the cinnamon and the muscovado sugar in the Monix Optima 16 cm saucepan and let it boil until it reduces by 1⁄4. It will be like a syrup.
  5. Using a brush, paint the top of the piece and spread the remaining sauce around to continue wetting the meat during cooking.
  6. Put the saucepan in the oven and every half hour we wet it with the juices from the tray.
  7. The time will depend on the weight of the meat, but at least it will be about 3h -3h1/2, although you can also know by looking at the internal temperature of the meat, it should be about 70oC.
  8. Fillet the meat and accompany it with mashed potatoes, applesauce or some type of chutney.
