  5. Snip off the excess twine. Now this is the hardest part: the loop! Make sure to keep the twine on the same side (bottom side for me). Here’s how I do it: make a loop around your left hand, fingers up.

  7. Now turn your hand so your fingers face the meat. Let the loop fall onto the meat and remove your hand. There’s a loose knot where the twine crosses.

  19. You can do 2 things now: stop here, make a double tight knot around the last loop and cut off the excess twine (season, brown the meat in a pan and pop it into a hot oven). Or you can also tie the back of the meat. Therefore turn the meat over. Cut the twine (it will be easier to work with from now on). Your twine should measure about 1 ½ times the length of the meat, enough to complete the job.
