Poor quality all bone and fat complete waste of miney

The reason I bought this product was to provide a main meal for several days during this lock-down. There were 6 chops in the pack. I cooked one this evening and there was not enough meat on it to put on a fork, it was very little other than bone with a small amount of fat. I would estimate that not more than 5% was meat. this is the worst product that I have ever had from you in many years that I have been a customer. I shall hand the remainder to your driver when he next makes a delivery to me.
More bone than meat!

Good value, thaw 1st though.
I prefer to get my lamb fresh, but compromised due to post-holiday splurging! Unlike what the instructions say; DON'T COOK FROM FROZEN... I've seen that this results in a tough tough chop. I leave them in the refrigerator to thaw 24hrs before I intend to cook them. An hour before cooking, I season (S&P, fresh rosemary, thyme, garlic, etc), rub lightly with olive oil then allow them to stand an hour outside the fridge to bring them to room temperature.. Then broil/grill/pan fry.. (Tesco does a frozen lamb joint and people complain about toughness with that as well, I cooked a superb Christmas lamb using the Tesco frozen joint, I did the same thing; let it thaw fully then proceed with it as fresh)..
Beautiful juicy chops
The key to juicy meat especially chops is to sprinkle with salt lightly on both sides of the meat before putting in the oven. This is basically a dry brine, it will draw all the juices out and down into the meat, and you will see the meat turn a whitish light brown colour, with a beautiful fatty rind that is crispy and salty to perfection. Leave to brown as you wish, it will still be juicy due to the salt. Follow what I said and you won't have burnt, dry tasteless chops. You're welcome.

For the price these are great slow cooked so the meat falls off the bone then made into hot pot / curry etc and I use them a lot. I think people seriously need to learn how to cook the tougher cuts of meat - heaven help them if they were presented with a scrag end neck of lamb!!. These are quite obviously not quick fry chops. Can't make a silk purse into a sow's ear but with a reasonable amount of time and knowledge these can be made into a great and reasonably priced family meal.
Don't Buy , absolute awful
Absolutely awful I would give these no stars if I could . In my 70 years I have come across some poor quality meat but none as bad as these bones. I can't call them chops because that would imply there is some meat on them , they are 70% Bone, 25% fat, and maybe 5% meat if you want to spend half an hour scraping the bones .
Good in a cassarole
If you want chops for roasting you will be very disappointed. I buy these to use in a casserole and really like them. If you slow cook they will be tender and tasty. The quality of the chops does vary with each bag.

Not good quality. Tough and tasteless.Pay the extra for fresh meat
Expected the worst based on other reviews, yet I have been served worse in restaurants. Cook slowly on low heat and these beat others I've tried for twice the price. Recommended.
