Consequently, is lamb loin the same as backstrap?
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.
One may also ask, what part of the lamb is the loin? Directly behind the ribs, running down the spine towards the animal's hindquarters, are the lamb loins. It is a popular cut of lamb and is usually the most tender cut.
Beside this, what is another name for lamb backstrap?
Backstrap. Also called Eye of Short Loin, this comes from the middle loin and is trimmed of all excess fat and cut into steak portions.
What is lamb backstrap called in UK?
Posted June 9, 2007. Spiceblog has a recipe that uses Lamb Backstrap and from what I can gather, the UK equivalent to Backstrap is a simple Saddle/Loin.
