1 About 1 hour before you begin roasting the meat, remove it from the refrigerator.
2 Very finely chop together the garlic, rosemary, fennel, and salt, then place the seasonings in a small bowl. Stir in the pepper and oil to form a smooth paste.
3 With a small knife, cut deep slits into the surface of the pork. Insert the paste into the slits.
4 Place a rack in the lower third of the oven. Preheat the oven to 350°F. When ready, place the roast in the oven and cook 3 hours. Spoon off the excess fat. Roast the meat 1 to 1 1/2 hours longer, or until the temperature reaches 160°F on an instant-read thermometer. When the meat is done, the fat will be crisp and a deep nutty brown.
5 Transfer the meat to a cutting board. Cover with foil to keep warm and let stand 20 minutes. Carve and serve hot or at room temperature.
