Lamb Loin Chops Question

apprentice9 | Nov 3, 201504:43 AM     4

I found some lamb loin chops at Costco the other day and originally was planning to use lamb in a braise. I was going to try the braised lamb shanks recipe from Joy of Cooking (p. 495 in the 75th anniversary edition) which calls for lamb shanks to be browned for 5 minutes and later braised in chicken broth/wine/tomato puree for around an hour to an hour and a half at 300 degrees. I also read that the shanks are a tougher cut of meat than the loins I ended up with, so would this recipe still work with the loins in place of the shanks? Should I adjust the cooking time? Or would I be ruining a good piece of meat and should look into a different cooking method entirely?

Thanks for any advice!
