It is a perfect dish for Passover dinner, and I always make it when I need to feed a big bunch friends and family. And they love it. The meat and vegetables cooking in the oven will fill your place with an amazing aroma. Be careful: take it under consideration that the hunger will come before the meal will be ready.
And don’t forget to ask your butcher to leave the fat on the cut. It will melt during cooking and will make the meat and the veggies so so delicious.

5. After 8 minutes in the oven, take the meat out and set aside for 12 minutes. Then put is back in for another 8 minutes, and once again, take out and set aside for 12 minutes. Repeat this process 4 times. (if your cut of meat is smaller repeat only 3 times). If the vegetables begin to get too brown you can take them out
* This technique, which I learned from Eyal Shani, leaves the meat soft and pink on the inside, and the juices drip onto the vegetables, giving them an excellent taste.
** The meat has to reach a temperature of 120 - 140° to achieve a perfect pink medium level.
