2 racks of lamb

2 tablespoons olive oil

1/4 cup shallots (finely chopped)
1 cup dry red Martini Rossi
1 teaspoon minced rosemary leaves (or about 1/4 teaspoon of crumbled dried rosemary)

Directions:
Directions:
1. Heat oven to 400 F. Sprinkle the lamb with salt and pepper. Heat olive oil in a large heavy skillet preferably an oven-safe skillet over medium-high heat. Place racks of lamb in skillet, meaty side down. Sear the lamb until nicely browned on all sides, letting the racks support each other.
2. Transfer the skillet to the oven and roast the lamb for about 20 to 30 minutes.*
3. Remove the racks to a platter, tent it loosely with foil, and keep warm.
4. Place the skillet over medium heat and add the shallot or onions to the drippings. If necessary, add a tablespoon or two of olive oil. Cook, stirring, for 3 to 4 minutes, until tender. Add the wine and herbs; boil until the wine has reduced by about two-thirds. Add the beef stock and continue to cook over medium heat until reduced to about 3/4 cup. Add the butter; stir.
Taste and season with salt and pepper. Mix the water and cornstarch together - pour into sauce if you wish to thicken. Serve sauce with the lamb. Makes about 3/4 cup.
Cut lamb into portions and serve with the red wine sauce.

Personal Notes:
This recipe came from Umberto's cook book. I made some adaptations but this is very close. Make sure you have the rack of lamb "frenched" - otherwise you will have a LOT of fat on the racks and things will NOT go well.
