Lamb chops are small, juicy, utterly irresistible treasures. Loin chops are deliciously tender and have a small T-bone that separates the tenderloin from the eye. Rib chops match loin chops when it comes to flavor and tenderness. These are the chops from a rack of lamb and while they have no tenderloin, they are tasty. Either cut can be used for this recipe.
