    Preheat the oven for roasting (electric cooker: 100 °C/circulating air: 75 °C/gas: not suitable). Dab meat dry. Rub all around with salt. Wash thyme, shake dry. Place herb stalks on the meat side, wrap with kitchen string.

    Heat 1 tablespoon of lard in a large frying pan. Brown the meat on all sides over a high heat. Place a roast thermometer between the bones in the thickest part of the meat. Place the meat on a rack and push it into the oven.

  3. 3

    Slide a grease pan underneath it. Cook in a hot oven for approx. 3 1⁄2 hours in pink (medium; core temperature 55-60 °C). Use the pan with the frying set for the sauce.
