When I saw how affordable and meaty these grilled lamb loin chops were at Costco, I had to try them. Immediately, I was hooked, because these are easy to prepare (if you follow my recipe) and meaty. Add a very flavorful mint chimchurri (made with mint, garlic and orange) and you have a gourmet meal at home that is very affordable.

You may be asking the same thing I was asking when you saw this recipe for grilled lamb loin chops with mint chimichurri. Allow me to answer a few general questions you might have.

Lamb Loves Mint

I love that my deck is full of fresh herbs, and I always have one pot devoted to mint. It’s great for drinks, lemon water, pesto, pistou, garnish and more.

What are Lamb Loin Chops?

These chops come from the loin, which is located between the ribs and the leg of the lamb. They are thicker than rib chops and have more meat.

What is difference between Lamb Chops and Lamb Loin Chops?

  • Lamb Loin Chops are thicker and more meaty.
  • Lamb Loin Chops are a more affordable cut.
  • Lamb Chops cut from the rack of lamb are more tender, a little more flavorful, but do come with a hefty price.

First of all, just looking, you can see the difference. The lamb chops you are probably most familiar with come from the rack of lamb, and the chops are recognizable by a long thin rib bone. They are considered more flavorful, more tender, and while true, this should not rule out the lamb loin chop (similar to the T-bone steak), which is more meaty and equally delicious.
