Thereof, what is the tenderest cut of lamb?
The Many Cuts of Lamb Loin Chop: It is one of the most readily available, and expensive, cuts at the grocery store. They are small T-shaped steaks and are the leanest and tenderest cuts. There are also double loin chops.
Likewise, what cut of meat is backstrap? For the record, backstrap refers to a length of loin on the back of a deer, elk, moose, etc. It's the ribeye in beef and loin in pork. Tenderloins are the two strips of very tender meat under the loin, behind the ribs. This is filet mignon in beef.
In respect to this, is lamb backstrap the same as lamb loin?
Lamb backstrap comes from the back of the animal near the spine, trimmed from the middle of the loin. This cut is free from fat, gristle and bone. In contrast to other cuts of lamb, backstrap is wonderfully lean and meaty, meaning that an individual portion goes a long way.
Is lamb leg tender?
The leg and rack are the most tender cuts of meat on a lamb, and are at their best when roasted. Roasting is a "dry heat" cooking method, meaning that you do not add any liquid to the meat as you cook it. Tougher cuts of lamb, such as shank and shoulder, are best for braising and stewing.
