Loin of roe deer wrapped in coppa

# 307

Coppa is made from the shoulder of the pig. It’s got plenty of fat and is a little sweeter than parma ham. It’s perfekt to wrap around  a loin of roebuck. It’ll keep the meat moist and inject it with extra flavour.

The Roedeer

Cut the fillets of the bone, and trim the meat of any sinews and fatty bits.
Slice the garlic and the porkfat.

Pull the leaves off the rosemary sprigs. Put the two fillets together on the parchment paper, with the coppa slices.

Roll the sheet around the fillets, and pull the paper off, so the fillets are covered with the slices.
Tie with a butchers string.

Make 2cm deep cuts, all over, with a skarp utility knife. Insert a slice og garlic, pork fat and a few rosemary needles in each hole.

Preheat the oven @180

Brown the meat on all sides. Transfer the meat to a roasting tray and pour the wine, so i covers 1/3
of the meat. Put the roast in the oven for 30-35min, basting the meat every 5-10 min.
