I alternate between using lamb chops and mutton chops. This recipe works for both types of meat. The difference between lamb and mutton meat is the age. Lamb meat is from sheep that are less than one year old whereas mutton meat is typically three years or older. Lamb is more tender than mutton so requires less cooking time. So, if you do decide to use lamb instead, be sure to alter the cooking times accordingly.
