    4. 4

    10. 10
      Meanwhile, taste the juices and add pepper (and salt if necessary).
    11. 11
      During the roasting process the wine should have reduced and mingled with the meat juices and anchovy butter to make a delicious gravy.
    12. 12
      If you find it too thin, reduce to the desired consistency.

      This recipe has a lot of !WOW! factor and is great dinner-party material. Right off the bat - you can't go wrong with the anchovy/rosemary/garlic butter and I intend to use it with a lot of my roasts. The bacon 'wrapping' really gilded the lily and did lend lots of smoky flavour as well as a great presentation. This tasted simply wonderful and has been noted down in my 'permanent' file. Thanks Jan!
