Rack of Lamb

2 (7 bone) racks of lamb
2 tablespoons olive oil
salt and pepper to taste
4 cloves garlic, minced
1 large onion, diced
4 carrots, diced
1 cup chopped celery, with leaves
1 cup red wine
1 cup port wine
1 (10.5 ounce) can chicken broth
5 sprigs fresh spearmint
3 sprigs fresh rosemary
1 cup mint apple jelly
1/4 cup panko bread crumbs
2 tablespoons olive oil
salt and pepper to taste
1 tablespoon garlic, minced
2 tablespoons olive oil

1. To Make Demi-Glace: In a medium skillet over medium heat, heat 2 tablespoons olive oil and add trimmings and fat cap from lamb; add salt and pepper to taste.

2. Cook until fat is brown without being burnt; when cooked, lower heat and add 4 cloves minced garlic or to taste. Add onion, carrots, celery tops, port, red wine, and chicken broth; reduce liquids at a low simmer, adding more stock, port, or wine as needed to keep pan from going dry.

3. Place mixture into a crock pot to simmer overnight; strain. Add spearmint, rosemary and mint jelly; begin simmering over medium-low heat to reduce, adding more port, wine, or stock as needed until mixture leaves a syrup-like coating on the back of a spoon. Strain once more and set aside to keep warm while lamb roasts.

4. To Roast Lamb: Preheat oven to 450 degrees F (230 degrees C).

5. Heat a cast iron or oven-proof skillet in oven until it reaches 450 degrees F (230 degrees C). Meanwhile, trim all excess fat and preen rib bones.

6. Rub meat with 2 tablespoons olive oil, salt and pepper to taste, and 1 tablespoon garlic, or to taste; coat with panko bread crumbs.

7. In heated skillet, warm 2 tablespoons olive oil and sear loins on both sides; continue cooking to desired temperature (5 to 7 minutes for medium rare).

8. Pour a small amount of demi-glace on platter and arrange sliced loins criss-crossed; drizzle with more demi-glace and garnish with fresh mint; serve.
