Roasted Rack of Lamb with Black Olive Sauce

4 garlic cloves, peeled and crushed
4 shallots, peeled and chopped
1 tb black peppercorns
1/2 cup unsalted butter
2 cup Madeira
2 cup red wine
1 rosemary sprig
l tomato, diced
1 cup demi-glace (or good quality lamb or beef broth)
1/2 cup pitted Nicoise olives
black pepper

2 lamb racks, 8 chops each chine bones and fat removed
1 tb olive oil
1 rosemary sprig, leaves only, chopped

Saute the garlic, shallots lots and peppercorns in 1 tablespoon
butter until lightly browned, Add the Madeira and red wine, rosemary
and tomato. Simmer until reduced by two-thirds, leaving about 1
cup total. Add the demi-glace and return to a boil. Whisk in
remaining butter a little at a time until it is incorporated. If
you wish a thicker, richer sauce, add more butter. Strain sauce
through a fine strainer, then transfer to a blender. Add half the
olives and puree until almost smooth. Roughly chop the remaining
olives and add to the sauce. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
Set aside in a warm place until serving time.

Rub racks well with olive oil and season with salt, pepper and
rosemary. Let come to room temperature. Heat a roasting pan or
large saute pan until very hot. Add a few drops oil and sear the
lamb racks in it on all sides until brown. Place the racks bone
side down in the hot pan and transfer to a 400F oven. Roast to
medium rare, or to desired doneness, 10 to 20 minutes. Let lamb
rest for 15 minutes, then slice into 8 chops per rack. Serve 4
