Lamb Chops are tough because of the long strands of fiber in the lamb chop meat which makes it tough and hard to chew.

If you cut with the grain pf the lamb chops, you'll end up with long strands of fiber in each bite and your teeth will have to do the work of cutting through the fibers, and the meat will be chewy.

To tenderize the lamb chops you can beat the lamb chops with a meat tenderizer mallet to break up the fibers or marinate the lamb chops in red wine or put the lamb chops in a sealable plastic bag and pour the marinade over them.

Be sure to move the lamb chops around in the bag so the marinade coats them well.

The only difference between lamb chops and lamb loin chops is where the meat is cut from on the lamb.

Lamb Loin Chops are usually cut from the waist of the lamb while lamb chops are usually cut from the rib of the lamb.

The lamb chops and lamb loin chops are the same meat but just cut from different parts of the lamb.

The lamb loin chops are also a very tender, prized section of the lamb, usually sold cut into chops (it is also possible to order a loin roast, either on the bone or boneless).

Lamb Loin chops are slightly leaner than rib chops and lack the rib bone.

Pork Loin Chops come from the back part of the pig.

The Pork Loin Chops are also known as and referred to as "porterhouse" or "T-bone" pork chops.

Pork Loin Chops also look like a T-bone steak from a cow, and they contain two muscles, the loin and tenderloin. Since they cook so differently, cooking them by very fast methods is not recommended.

There's also Lamb Loin Chops and unlike the pork loin chops the lamb loin chops contain almost one muscle.

Lamb Loin Chops also are bigger than rib chops, and the biggest lamb chop that does not have bands of connective tissue separating the meat.

The Lamb Loin Chops do very well with hot, fast, dry methods of cooking, such as grilling or broiling.

Lamb Loin Chops are cut from the waist of the lamb, and the lamb loin chops don't have the rib bone.

Lamb chops also are generally rib chops.

So the lamb chops are from lambs and the pork loin chops are from pigs and cut from the back of the pig.

Cooking pork loin chops or lamb loin chops takes 1 hour and 30 minutes in the oven and above 30 minutes to 45 minutes on the grill.
