  • 1 leg of lamb
  • 2 bay leaves
  • 2 sprigs thyme
  • 3 cloves garlic
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon pink peppercorns
  • 2 teaspoons honey
  • 4 1/2 ounces provence rosé
  • Salt and pepper to taste


  • Step 1

    Peel your garlic and cut into quarters lengthways. With a small pointed knife make little incisions in your lamb and stuff the holes with the garlic.

  • Step 2

    Put the leg of lamb in a baking dish. Sprinkle with thyme, bay leaf and pink peppercorns.

  • Step 3

    Season and drizzle with oil and bake. Lower the oven temperature to 180 ° C. Cook about 45 minutes (count 12 to 15 minutes of cooking per pound). Baste every 15 minutes.

  • Step 4

    After 45 minutes, in a separate bowl mix a little of the lamb juice with the honey and Rosé wine. Pour half of the mixture onto the lamb and return to the oven cook for a further 15 minutes and repeat this.

  • Step 5

    Cover with foil and let the leg rest for at least 20 minutes before serving. Enjoy… Bon appetit! ♥♥♥
